I am trying to identify the following molding so that I can use it on the built-in counter top I am constructing. Anybody know what this is and where I can get it?

I have access to Home Depot and also this millwork – http://www.mouldingandmillwork.com/pdf/IND6808_Orlando_Profile_Guide.pdf

a typical chair rail, has other uses but that’s what it is.

It is called “Half Astragal” and is fairly common at molding suppliers. Not sure about big box stores.

This is the millwork that all the local lumber yards use here in Jacksonville, FL.

This would be even better:

So many different answers across multiple forums as to what this is. I thought this was supposed to be a ‘stock’ type molding!

I can’t find it anywhere here in Jacksonville.

The top part looks like a door edge molding we use sometimes. It would be a simple molding to make if you made it in two pieces. We’ve made a drop edge on solid surface tops that looks just like it.

Chair rail molding. At least that’s what I was told to do it the last time I saw some.

Thanks for the replies. I cant seem to put either of these examples together. Could any of you put some profiles together for me and name them from the catalog I linked to above? It’s what I have acces to here locally. Thanks again

There are two sizes. This particular supplier calls it “Lineal Edge”
Not sure if they ship.

I would have said Bed Moulding but it is called Head Crown here. -Jack

Panel Moulding?

Yep that’s it, “head crown”.

Where can I get it locally in Jacksonville, FL?

Or how can I build up this profile from here? http://www.mouldingandmillwork.com/pdf/IND6808_Orlando_Profile_Guide.pdf

It’s called cove and bead. Very common. The variables are in the size of each section and overall height. You show it upside down looking at your picture the top is the cove,middle is fillet, bottom is the bead. Look at MLCS, Eagle,Whiteside. They all have it some offer it alone and others have in a multi bit.

Do you have links for “MLCS, Eagle, or Whiteside”. I googled these and cannot find them online.

I know I keep asking but the ONLY place I know to buy molding in Jacksonville, FL is from lumber yards that use this supplier- http://www.mouldingandmillwork.com/pdf/IND6808_Orlando_Profile_Guide.pdf

PLEASE help me put together what you are referencing from this catalog for this picture. I can find the cove, but nowhere do I see a bead or fillet. I think what you are calling a ‘bead’ is basically a bullnose, or what is referenced in my catalog as a “half round”. Thanks again.

Hmm, the more I look at this, the more I think that is a small piece of crown underneath a bullnose edge…...
