Julio holds up a piece of the moulding. This was another great moulding from McCoy Millwork. It has a nice, simple angular design that really fit well with the Craftsman aesthetic of the house. It would not have been appropriate to install anything curved or frilly in this kitchen. The angle is later mirrored in the window/door trim, as well as the piece on top of the cabinets. We got a great color match with our cabinets with one of the stock Minwax stains, plus a satin poly finish.
Because the price difference was huge, we chose to use hemlock instead of fir for this moulding. Like so many other details, it became much less noticeable once the whole room was put together. Even though it doesn’t really match the trim in our other rooms, the “feel” is the same, so nobody ever notices.
