he warmth of wood...
Have you ever entered a home and said to yourself,
“This feels nice—really comfortable?”
Many things contribute to the success of a home’s interior—design, colors,
furnishings. The natural beauty and warmth of hardwoods is also a key element to
what many refer to as a “homey feel” or “warm and inviting.” Mouldings are
significant in making that happen.
From the simple to the extravagant, Ferche has the ideas, styles, designs and wood
species to please the most discriminating. We hope this guide to mouldings assists
you in finding the perfect look for your home.
Standard Series
The moulding selection process can be a complicated one. The
first several pages contain groups of mouldings that would be
considered standards of the Ferche lineup. These seven groupings
are all shown in red oak, a mainstay in the upper midwest.
However, any profile can be obtained in any wood specie. As you
continue through the brochure, you will discover more ideas,
options, styles and looks that will guide you through the process
and help you define your home’s interior.
This page shows two styles in red oak that are often used in starter
homes. The casing and base perform the function designed for
mouldings—cover an unfinished edge, such as drywall, in order to give a
finished appearance. Chair rail is used to protect a wall from chair
damage or to separate the upper and lower walls which may have
different colors or textures. Crown is used as an architectural accent,
defining the ceiling line with an interesting shape, texture or color.

The simplest and most economical mouldings are oftentimes
referred to as “Ranch” and “Princeton.” The casing is generally
7/16" thick and 2 1/4" wide. The base is 3/8" x 2 3/4". These
sizes are adequate for modestly priced homes. Larger mouldings
are more appropriate for more expensive homes.
Standard Series
Flat Casing & Base
Crown F611
3/4" x 3 5/8"
A flat casing and base are often used with a design style called “Craftsman”
or “Mission.” This style calls for very clean lines with minimal curves and
profiling of the mouldings. Red oak, with its interesting and more active
graining, is a species that works well with the contrasting simple lines of
this style. The examples shown here have a 3 1/4" casing and a 5 1/4"
base. This size would be a move-up package from the most economical sizes
shown on the previous page. This size is well suited for rooms with 9'
ceilings or larger proportions.

This moulding package contains a bevel casing, similar to the casing
on the previous page, but thicker and wider. It could be categorized
as traditional or colonial. The crown has been enhanced by the
addition of a base moulding behind it, which gives the crown a
heavier look without adding as much cost as a one piece crown of the
same perceived size. The base shown here is a hardwood veneer over
an MDF core with a solid hardwood top edge. This product is less
expensive than a solid base of the same size. The chair rail is wider
with a more defined profile shape.

Crown F614
11/16" x 4 1/4"
Chair Rail F722
11/16" x 3"
These two examples show 3 1/4" bevel casing being used with a
backband, bringing the overall width to 3 3/4". The backband, selected
to match the style of the casing, gives the casing a more substantial look
and works well if the base or chair rail (which butts into the casing) is
thicker than the casing alone. This gives the casing a much heavier look
without a significant increase in price. Making the same shape in one
piece of wood is much more expensive.

The crown and chair rail to the right contain notched mouldings called
dentil. The dentil adds another set of shadows and visual texture to give
interest to the mouldings. This moulding package could be used
successfully in traditional or colonial settings. The scale of these
mouldings is appropriate for homes with 9' and taller ceilings and rooms
of larger proportions.

Ferche has several sizes and styles of the miterless system using corner
and plinth blocks. Blocks are most used with flat casings like the
F160 shown at left. Other similar casings are F161 and F163.
Smaller casings at 2 3/8" wide and larger flat casings at 5 1/2" are
available with corresponding plinth and corner blocks.

The mouldings for those who would
like to express themselves with a
creative flair is F169. This
moulding can be used with 2 types
of inserts, a reeded one (F169B) to
add shadow lines or a smooth one
(F169A) which can be clear-coated,
painted or wrapped in a
complimentary wall covering. These
are used with plinth and corner
blocks. Now you can redecorate
your mouldings when you redecorate
your room.

Decorator Series
The Decorator Series is Ferche Millwork’s answer to
simple sophistication. When a home reaches a
higher level of design sophistication, it is expected
that the mouldings also will have significant thought
put into their design and that’s what Ferche has
done for you. Each family of mouldings brings you
base, casing, chair rail and crown that have been
created to match each other.
The simplicity lies in the fact that architectural
correctness is obtained with a single moulding
selection. One decision and you’re done! What
could be easier or more beautiful?

Window and Door Toppers
Exquisite looks. Quick to install. Designed to be cost
The toppers are assembled by Ferche Millwork to fit
your door and window openings. Mix and match
wood species to suit your interior design theme. The
system has been designed to give you the look of
luxury for little more than the price of a simple
cased opening.
F1800 “Plainsong” shown in cherry
The 3/4" thick topper measures approximately 6"
tall at ends and, on those with a top arc, 7" in the
center. The casing with backband measures 3 3/4 4" wide. Depending on the backband style, the sides
will allow for a base/basecap with up to a 3/4" - 1"
With the system, installation is quick. The finish
carpenter simply installs the sides, sets the top, nails
it in place and moves on. Labor savings and
engineered design savings on the sides makes for an
exquisite appearance at a reasonable cost—a
combination that will please builders as well as

The system gives you the option of mixing various
species to bring together other woods used in the
house. For example, the use of a walnut floor and
cherry doors can be unified by using trim
containing both species. Or, the use of a single
specie can accentuate the design of the mouldings
around an opening in a more subtle fashion. Either
way, the window and door openings make a positive
statement regarding the thought and consideration
given to the design of the interior trim package.
The casing and backbands can be ordered in any
combination or specie as sides, pieces or random
length product.

Another way to embellish the tops of windows and
doors is with toppers built on-site. The following
are examples to give you design ideas.
These toppers can be used with a variety of casing
styles, including bevel casing (generally 3 1/4" or
wider) like F130, F131, F132 or F196/F134; VIP
Casing like F160, F161, F162 ; or flat casing
(3 1/4" or wider).

A mantel is an excellent example of utilizing
moulding components in a coordinated way to
achieve a beautiful result. Ferche has designed a
number of mantels that can be ordered with a single
part number that are packaged with everything
required to construct the mantel. The components
are sized for a 39" x 52" opening and need to be cut
and assembled to fit the firebox and its surround.

EZ Beam
Like all classic beauty, the
beauty of the Ferche EZ
BEAM interlocking ceiling
beam design is based on the
principle of simplicity.
Simple, classic-beam design.
Simple, user-friendly
Key to EZ BEAM’s simplicity is the interlocking
design. This interlocking feature ensures a fail-safe
registration of parts, and provides the nailing
channel through which the parts are fastened. Once
filled, the nail holes will be virtually invisible. EZ
Beam makes installation as easy to understand as it
is to accomplish. You’ll take great pride in the
finished job. No major remodeling. No weeks-onend of unlivable workspace.
Adding the EZ BEAM system to your home is a
simple, beautiful way to add value, charm and a rich
sense of quality to any living space. Whatever the
species, a Ferche EZ Beam system will add
distinction and visual impact to any room.

F471S - 3/4" x 5 1/2"
F471L - 3/4" x 3 1/2"
An EZ BEAM ceiling can be laid out in proportion
to the custom specifications of any room. Beam
sides differ in height, the tallest trimming the
perimeter of the room, a shorter beam providing
the main beam structure running the length of the
room, the smallest serving as the cross members
between the main beams.

F472S- 3/4" x 5 1/2"
EZ Beam
Step one of the installation is to attach beam side to
blocking. The nails securing the side to the blocking
will be covered later with bed moulding. Fit the
bottom component into the side member groove
and clamp into position. Nail side member to beam
bottom through nailing groove.
Repeat procedure to attach opposing side member.
Continue until all beam sides and bottoms have
been positioned and nailed. Install bed moulding
around the top inside corner of the square formed
by the installed beams.
The EZ BEAM structure is installed starting with
the perimeter components, followed by the main
beams and finally the cross members. Blocking of
the appropriate width is screwed to the ceiling
sequentially, that is, for the perimeter components
first, followed by application of the perimeter
beams, blocking for the main runners next,
followed by application of the runners themselves,
and finally, blocking for the cross members
followed by the application of the cross members
themselves. Kiln-dried blocking material or
plywood (not dimensional lumber) is recommended
to minimize shrinkage, and the resultant gaps
between beam members.
Attach blocking
A suggested method of bed moulding installation is
to install opposite sides, trimming the ends at 90
degrees. Then, after measuring the span length, trim
the pieces with a 45 degree miter, cope the miter cut
and install between the other two mouldings. An
alternative method is to simply cut a 45 degree
miter corner on all pieces.
The finished result is a beautiful beamed ceiling
with nice detailing without an excessive amount of
labor. The design of the system speeds installation as
well as adding to the cleanness of the look due to
the inconspicuous placement of the fasteners.

clamp bottom in place and
Clamp opposing side in place

Custom Products Solid
& Veneered
Historical reproductions, high-end residential,
commercial or any project with architect
involvement may call for mouldings not found in
our standard product line. Ferche has developed its
facility to efficiently handle just these types of
moulding orders also. Both solid mouldings as well
as veneered products can be engineered to meet your
specific requirements. Our moulders can process
11 1/2" widths. Wider moulding profiles can be
designed in segments. Veneered products can be
configured with a broad range of design parameters.
New products can be designed and manufactured.
Existing mouldings can be duplicated which match
exactly. When you need custom, think Ferche!
Here is an example of a large casing requested by one of our
customers. We received a rough sketch of the profile shape,
measuring 2 1/4" thick by 4" wide. They requested it in red oak
and cherry. In other cases, an actual sample of the moulding to
be duplicated can be sent. We will match it exactly.
Our Grinding Room staff made a detailed CAD
drawing of the profile and sent it to the customer for
their approval.
With the approval given, a template was cut to the exact
shape of the drawing.
Custom Products Solid & Veneered
The template was used to grind the knives needed for use in
the moulder.
The product was manufactured on one of the many Weinig
moulders Ferche uses in the plant.
The finished moulding was identical to the CAD drawing
approved by the customer and has all of the high standards of
product quality for which Ferche Millwork is known.

Types of Wood
What wood species do you like? There are many
things to take into consideration—cost, color, grain,
hardness and others. If you will be using little or no
stain in the finishing process, the characteristic color
of the species is important. Some people think there
is nothing more beautiful than clear-coated cherry
when it is allowed to age into a dark, rich, reddishbrown. Others appreciate the natural beauty of
lighter woods like hard maple or oak with a clear
finish. If darker stains are to your liking, there is the
opportunity to use a less costly type of wood and
still achieve a beautiful look. Poplar, a lower priced
hardwood, is used as a substitute for alder or cherry
with good results and significant savings when
stained and finished properly.
The hardwoods most commonly run by Ferche
Millwork include red oak, poplar, hard maple, soft
maple, birch and cherry. Any hardwood can be
obtained and processed by Ferche. During a one
year time period, we will process over 40 different
There are obvious differences between wood species,
especially when it comes to color, graining and
pricing. One thing that is common among all wood
species is the visual variety within the same species.
There will be differences in color, hue, graining,
density, mineral streaks, the amount of sapwood
versus heartwood, internal stresses and on and on.
That’s the nature of a product which grows under a
variety of conditions over several decades in
different geographical locations, and, what gives
wood its beauty and character.

Types of Wood
There are also special characteristics among certain
species to make note of...
Red Oak
Ferche obtains red oak from sawmills near its
concentration yard in Mt. Pleasant, Tennessee, in
the heart of the Appalachian Lumber region. This
area produces trees which reach the best
combination of good length structure and good
color. Red oak coming from Southern Lumber
regions (not used by Ferche) will have a much
broader color range, with more gray and pinks,
which puts it outside the range of what is the
preferred wheat color. The red oak that we process
has a good length and width structure along with
good color.

Hard and Soft Maple
We sell both hard maple and soft maple. Our hard maple
will have a consistent white/cream color that people
generally associate with maple. Longer lengths (up to 16')
are available in small quantities. Soft maple will be less
expensive, but has characteristics that many people don’t
like. It will have more color variation than our hard
maple, including more of a gray color tone. If clearcoated or stained, this will be noticeable, especially when
compared to a maple door which will be made with hard
maple veneers and solid stock. Soft maple lengths are not
as good as hard maple, with a heavy concentration in the
8' to 12' range. When maple is stained, both hard and
soft, it tends to get “blotchy” in areas which absorb stain
more readily. This effect is much more noticeable in soft
maple than in hard. The mouldings can be treated with a
conditioner prior to staining to minimize this effect. Soft
maple also has more short, squiggly, dark lines, which are
the result of worm tracking. This is considered by some
to be “character” and by others to be a defect. Most
people will be more satisfied with the quality and look of
hard maple.

Types of Wood
Poplar is the hardwood we recommend as a paintable
product. It is one of the least expensive hardwoods that
we produce. Poplar has a greenish hue with naturally
occurring purple and black streaks. Ferche buys a select
grade without the dark streaks which works well as a
stainable product. Poplar has a good length structure and
can be mixed successfully with other species, like alder,
which comes only in shorter lengths. There will need to
be some “tweaking” with stains to get the two species to
color match, but the grain, texture and pore structure
between these two species allows for a good match.
Birch, like maple, will tend toward blotchiness when
stained. Birch lumber runs short. Mouldings will be
available up to 12' long, heavy in the 8' to 10' range.
There is a limited supply of lumber wider than 6".

Types of Wood
Alder (Clear and Knotty)
Knotty Alder
Alder has a short length structure and will be available up
to 10' long and widths up to 6". Clear alder may have
limited availability and may contain tight pin knots
without being considered defective. Knotty alder can
have broken knots with holes up to the size of a dime.
Clear Alder
The red coloration associated with cherry comes from
that part of the tree called the heartwood (center part of
the log). The lighter part of the log, found on the outer
perimeter of the tree, is called sapwood. The lumber we
purchase for mouldings is the highest grade, but still
contains some of the lighter sapwood. Therefore, the
mouldings we sell will have a small amount of light color
streaking. Small, dark streaks (pitch and gum pockets) are
also common characteristics. Cherry may have some
longer lengths up to 14', but only in small quantities.

Types of Wood
Black Walnut
Walnut’s dark color is characteristic of its
heartwood. Like cherry, it may have some light
streaking. Walnut is usually limited to lengths up to
12' and widths up to 6". Due to a somewhat
limited supply, the NHLA Grading Rules are less
stringent when applied to walnut.
African Mahogany
African mahogany is the variety Ferche generally
uses in its products because it is more abundant
than other varieties. It is harvested using
environmentally sound practices. The length and
width structure is good. The dark color of
mahogany is often associated with the “old money”
Black Walnut
Hickory is often associated with a rustic decorating
style. The light and dark pattern in the lumber is
more informal. Hickory is a heavy wood and even
more durable than red oak.

Company History
eputations have to be earned, no one can hand you
one. Since its beginning in 1958, Ferche Millwork,
Inc. has grown to be nationally recognized for its
quality and service and has since set the standard for
the hardwood moulding industry. Quality doesn’t happen by
accident. It is the goal of many, achieved by some, but
maintained by few. To maintain this high level of quality, you
need to control the product through all phases of production. To
do this, we start by buying only the finest quality hardwoods
available from a growing number of trusted, reliable suppliers
that have grown with us over the years.
This lumber is delivered to Ferche Millwork’s concentration yard
in Mt. Pleasant, Tennessee, where each board is examined and
graded by us. Only the best lumber will
later be shipped to our manufacturing
facility in Rice, Minnesota. Once
graded, the lumber will be properly
“stickered” (separated with wooden
strips) and allowed to air dry to the
correct moisture content.
This air dried lumber will then be
shipped and unloaded at our Minnesota
facility where, under precisely controlled
conditions, with the latest technology,
we carefully dry the lumber in our kilns.
This gives our lumber the highest degree
of stability and machinability to
maintain the finest finish possible on
our mouldings.
After drying, the lumber is processed for
optimum yield, lengths and quality. We
employ state-of-the-art technology with
automated high speed equipment that
holds to precise tolerances. With this
equipment, we can supply our
customers with the highest quality
mouldings available.
Company History
Ferche Millwork offers over 250 standard
profiles, solid, veneered and fingerjointed,
many of which are in stock for immediate
delivery. For that special project, we also
produce custom profiles in many species, all
with minimum leadtimes.
Ferche mouldings are known for their
consistency in profiles; manufactured by knives
sharpened in-house to our own templates,
under the watchful eyes of our well-trained,
skillful employees.
Conservation of our natural resources is part of
our daily operations. The short lumber blanks
are utilized by fingerjointing them into useable
products. We burn wood shavings to fire our
boilers, which provide steam for our kilns and
heat for our plant. A portion of our sawdust is
used by local farmers for animal bedding.
Nothing is wasted in the manufacture of our
We made a commitment in 1958 that we’re
here for the long haul. We have a great concern
for the well-being of our customers, employees
and our natural resources.
We are committed to maintaining a
safe, productive and healthy
working environment for our
The goal we set is to provide our
customers with a reliable source of
the highest quality products and
services possible. We offer excellent
value in a hassle-free relationship.
