Identify these trim profiles?
« on: January 15, 2012, 04:17 PM »
Does anyone recognize these two trim profiles?  I need a small amount of each (the base shoe, still attached to the 1x base, and the base cap - sitting to the side in the photo). 

I have looked in the catalogs of the stock offerings at my local suppliers but haven't found these two profiles. 

Thanks to anyone who recognizes these profiles.

You could probably make them yourself with a table saw...

Yes, we could make it, but I need some quickly and would rather send one of my people to buy something in stock and install it early this week.    There are a lot of suppliers in my area, but I don't have their catalogs, and having a trim profile # will make it easier to locate.

I'll bet I could make either one of those trim pieces on my router table faster than your helper could get to the supplier and back.   [tongue]

Guys, thanks for the extraneous comments  [blink], but the reality is that I will be at another job all week, I don't have time to mess with this, and even if I made it right now, the job is over an hour away from where I live. 

So, profile #'s would be helpful, if you know what they are.

Rob- I've never seen anything like that around here (nor in catalogs from other places) .

Can't say that I've ever seen those profiles, and judging by the rather rough shapes of the profiles, I'd be inclined to think that they were site-fabricated, so you may end up having to make your own pieces to match.

Rob,

In thirty years of doing trim a short distance from where you are - I have never seen that.  I will concur with the others who say that it was probably custom site done for the architect / owner.

Sorry buddy!

Hi Domenic, I tried the usual suspects (Smoot, TW Perry), but no luck.  I've never seen these profiles, but knowing the previous owner's propensity to do things on the cheap, it's hard to imagine that he paid someone for a custom run of anything.  Oh well. This is in DC, so anything goes there.

Chris, Peter, Bob....thanks for looking.  My router table is not assembled right now, so one more thing to add to the to-do list!

Left profile can be done on a table saw with 1 cut with a dado blade, two cuts with a stock blade.  Right one is 3-4 cuts depending on having a dado setup.  Both are about as basic as you can get contractor specials, most likely done on a portable table saw onsite.

Two other possibilities might be Tart Lumber and Sheets in Sterling.  I'm with the other guys that suggest that these are custom profiles.  Good luck!
