How to buy made to measure wood profiles?
If you need to match a timber profile or moulding you have a few options on how to source this. But first you need to determine exactly what you need by measuring the profile.
We have a unique tool that, not only, helps guide through to buying a bespoke or custom wooden profile but even gives you guide pricing on the way.
There are three key measurements needed for a wooden profile to enable a manufacture to price, match and produce your product.
The overall width/height, the thickness, and the size/detail of the shaped or moulded part of the section.
Our tool guides you through, asking for information as you go.

Once you've measured the moulded or shaped part of your profile, you'll be given several choices – see image.
A is the, is a moulded section that is less than 50 millimetres (approx. 2 inches).
Here's some examples of what an A type profile might look like. It could be a skirting board, a coving, a picture rail, anything with a mould less than 50 millimetres are not too complex.
The next choice is B. This would be a profile bigger than 50 millimetres, but less than 60 millimetres.
And again, not too complicated a profile. This, too, can be any type of moulding, as long as it's 51mm to 60mm.
C is the next choice. Now, this is slightly bigger, 61 to 80mm, and again, some examples.
D is if your moulded section is either large or very detailed and intricate.
So it could be a smaller mould, but with lots of detail to it.
We then get to profiles with more than one face/surface that has detailing. See image:
F1, if your profile is relatively simple, but there is more than one face that has detail. You'll see from these examples that F one has multiple faces, but they can be several different profiles.
Again, relatively simple. Just display a groove, chamfer, or maybe a small round.
F2, if your choice of profile has multiple faces that have been shaped, but maybe more intricate than F1. See examples. It could be a handrail, a window section, some decking, anything with multiple faces that have been shaped.
The next step is to choose your wood. We have several features to help you make the best choice for the profile you're looking for. Filters like usage or best wood based on your desired finish.
