Custom Molding Duplication

If you’re in the market for historic or custom moldings:

Do you have a historic renovation?

100-year-old moldings are not typically manufactured anymore, but that doesn't stop us! We can match any molding profile to exact standards of historical accuracy. Also, we have a steadily growing archive of knives. However, if none of these knives work, we will have a knife specially ground to replicate the profile you need.

Do you want something unique?

The majority of our clients want moldings that are "one-of-a-kind." Just tell us what you’d like, and we will make it for you.

Special molding applications?

Custom moldings are the perfect solution to unusually shaped surfaces. Particularly, curved applications. We can make all sorts of radius moldings to fit almost any convex or concave shape. For example, crown, base, chair rail, jambs, and window surrounds.

Custom materials?

Usually, stock molding is made from paint (or stain), grade pine, fir, or oak. LaRue Woodworking can create any profile in any hardwood. This includes Spanish cedar, Poplar, Sapele, Mahogany, Red Oak, White Oak, Birch, Black Locust, Cherry, Maple, and Walnut. As well as, any other wood species a customer requests.


If you are renovating, designing, or building a high-end residence or commercial space, purchasing custom molding for the job will cost less than assembling various types of stock molding. In addition, with custom molding, you get a distinctive look that delivers a much bigger "WOW" factor.
