Tip: Low vs. high price molding advice

There are different qualities of wooden molding - the least expensive is often finger-jointed, which means it's a composite of short pieces of wood, a good choice if you plan to paint it. But get a quality-grade wood if you plan to finish the molding with a stain because the grain of the wood will show through.
