I am not happy with the selection at the home centers; they offer only 1 or 2 different types (Colonial or Teardrop in Casing). I am stuck with 2 1/4" casing(since that is the max width my house will allow in many places) and maybe a 4" baseboard. I have been to a few Millwork Shops and found W180 Profile that would look good but it's not available in Oak. There are no Sills/Aprons on any of the windows so that makes things a bit easier for me.
That being said, I was thinking of going for a Shaper or Moulder equipped with a stock feeder to create my own Casing as well as Baseboard to go along with it. I was watching This Old House Yesterday and noticed that Tom Silva had a Moulder with a custom set of knives. There are no Sills/Aprons on any of the windows upstairs so that makes things a bit easier for me. I already know that in addition to this project I will have many other projects requiring it so I am not afraid to spend some $$'s to get myself setup. When casing runs $3-$6 per foot, this seems like an expense that could be justified. I have a 25x40 Shop that has plenty of open floorspace for equipment like this and enjoy woodworking with my tablesaw,router,jointer, etc.
Any thoughts from fellow woodworkers?
