We're repainting walls and ceiling, and refinishing the oak floor in our master bedroom.
In removing the base molding I installed some 20+ years ago, I struggled with replacing or refinishing. I went both ways and finally decided to replace it . . . with my own.
This Ash molding is ready for final finishing . . . all 72' against the 57' required.
I used less desirable slabs to make the two piece molding above.
