Mouldings One offers our publications at no cost for builders, craftsmen, and enthusiasts to explore and learn about mouldings, historic architectural styles, and how to use them.
Volume 1 – Catalogue of Profile Designs
This is our latest collection of profiles arranged and categorized by shape and style. All drawings are accurate, full-scale cross-sections and can be searched numerically by using the index. Our catalog complements our CAD which can be downloaded on our website to help you find the profile you need more efficiently.
Volume 2 – Book of Styles and Historic Woodwork
This book uses a variety of mouldings from our collection to create a series of stylistically consistent millwork packages to assist designers, builders, and architects working with new homes and restorations. We hope this book will help you understand when to use a particular moulding and what makes a moulding or group of mouldings look good.
Volume 3 – Architecture of the Western Reserve 1800-1860
The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) drawings and photographs presented in this book document historic architecture in the Western Reserve, much of it in the Greek Revival style. By drawing attention to the examples in this book, we hope to increase public awareness, appreciation, and preservation of our Western Reserve’s ever-disappearing architectural legacy.
Mouldings are used to express structural and formal transitions. Just as in designing the basic structure and form of a building or room, restraint, order, and clarity of expression should inform the design and the placement of mouldings. Use our guide to help make successful design choices.
