About The Materials We Use
The materials we use to create the molding patterns you find on our blog are good-quality, mid-price molding & millwork and mdf board.
I’ve been creating molding patterns from them for many years, and they allow me to make some pretty grand designs for a great price.
The prices vary by supplier and region of course, but at least these numbers will get you in the ballpark.
Note: Don’t forget to add 15-20% of additional material to account for waste and bad cuts when buying your moldings.
DIY Molding Profile Index

MDF Board (MDF)
I make a distinction between raw sheets of this MDF Board series and pre-primed mdf Flat-Stock (FS series above).
Since mdf board is so central to making affordable molding patterns, I wrote this special post about it: Fun With Flat-Stock. MDF Board for Molding Projects.
