How to Duplicate Old Door Casing
Learn How to Route Casing to Build and Match Victorian Doorway Casing
In this project, the owners have already restored most of their 1904 Queen Anne Victorian home in Knoxville's north historic district as a do-it-yourself project. One of their final tasks is to replace missing door casing around several doorways, matching them to the originals made of cypress wood with unusual routing, plinth blocks and corner blocks. Although they have searched, the homeowners have been unable to locate pre-milled casing to duplicate the Victorian style. Instead of paying a milling company to custom make casings for them, they elect to do it themselves, purchasing cypress stock, and then cutting and routing the components to replicate the door casings piece by piece.
