« Part 4: Window casings and LED lighting Part 5 of Remodeling a family cottage series Part 6: Living area flooring complete. Dramatic change »

The past couple of days I have prepped some oak and cut it into the parts I need to make the architrave moldings in the living room. As you can see it consists of four parts. One thin strip, one cove, and two ogees. Stacked one atop another they make a nice window top. The side moldings are fluted. Simple design, not difficult to make and a nice effect that will not need any other window dressing like curtains.
.
The parts: from left to right. thin strip, large cove, narrow ogee, wide ogee.

.
Capping the ends after the parts are sandwiched together and also after a couple of spray coats of poly.


.
The resulting architrave molding when sandwiched together


Lots of windows. Here’s a couple of walls showing them. Doors will get the same treatment.

.
Made with these two router bits. ogee for the two top parts and a cabinet makers bit for the cove.

Got to finish putting them up now and then on to the hardwood floors. See previous installments to see where we’ve come from.

Meticulous and beautiful—just catching up with this thread…

This living space, once the floors are in, could make for a perfect “pool table” area – at least in part.

And I agree – you really won’t need curtains. In fact, curtains might take-away from the overall look now.

Great work!

rohan, your link just led to the door companies homepage. Not any specific door. I’ve done this treatment with my doors too but only the molding/trim. Not the door itself.

CotL – Really nice work. The moldings are seriously nice. I may use something similar to that on my house – what do the sills look like?
