Q. What is finger-joint pine moulding?

A. A finger-joint is a type of joint between two pieces of wood, much like the interlocking of fingers. This joint allows for long pieces of wood to be created from a number of short pieces of wood. This is an economical way to use otherwise short scraps of wood. Typically sold primed, finger-joint pine is slightly structurally more sound than Ultralite.

Q. Is it possible to to wrap or cut a wood moulding around a stair nose?
A. No, but there is a quick and easy solution which provides the look. Use a panel moulding from the #311 series, mark a line about 8-9” on the side wall (Skirting) above every stair nose from the top of the staircase to the bottom, attach the moulding #311 on this line, paint the moulding and the wall a color different from your main painted wall, now it gives the appearance that there is a skirt panel running up your stairs. If there are slight gaps between your nosing and the wall use a paintable caulking to bridge these gaps.

Q. What are Composite Wood Mouldings?
A. Accra Composite Mouldings (ACM) are a unique type of wood moulding that can be used in both traditional and modern interiors to add architectural interest. Created using modern technology the mouldings evoke an old world hand carved wood appearance but at a fraction of the cost. The technology used combines solid wood mouldings and a wood pulp material. The pulp material is applied to a poplar base moulding and a stamp is pressed over it to create the pattern. Composite mouldings will accept stain seamlessly between the wood base and composite material, as well as accepting paint, gold leafing and faux finishing.
Composite mouldings are easily installed with conventional woodworking tools and are also ideal for:
– mirror and picture frames,
– decorative furniture / shelving accents,
– mantel surrounds and mantel caps.
Many of the mouldings in this collection combine nicely with mouldings from the Accra Designer Collection (ADM). For example, baseboard ADM257 pairs well with crown ACM5435. Even mouldings from different series within the Composite Collection mix nicely. This allows for a great deal of creativity in creating a look that is unique and appropriate for your home.
