molding strips Gaston and Wyatt abigail whalen

Composition

  • several different varieties of solid wood (no plywoods)

Properties

  • three flat edges, fourth edge cut into a unique profile that runs the length of the strip
  • clean woody scent
  • some corners/edges are a bit rough but the decorative profile is very smooth

Form

  • these samples are small end pieces ranging from 6”- 18” however uncut strips are several feet long (8’-11’)
  • approx. 1” wide

Process

Gaston + Wyatt cuts/makes their own custom die cuts to mill the decorative edge. To shape the exposed edge a moulding machine is used, the strip of wood, still square, is placed in the machine which mills the upper edge into a distinctive shape.

Application

Moulding is used either purely decoratively (usually to add contrast through shadow to a flat wall) or as a way to smooth over transitions in wall material.
