Hi, haven't been on the forum in a long time. Have been re-building a boat.

Anyway, saw some interesting mouldings in an upmarket shop in London,
It seemed to be oak dowels, maybe 25mm wide, ripped down and used as cladding on walls.

Surely this is super expensive, just pine dowels are £15 a pop here at BnQ..

anyone aware of amoulding like this on the market?

Cheers
Graham

Are you sure they're all separate? Reeding is quite a common moulding.

25mm Oak dowel would cost you about £2-3 per running metre from experience.

Is reeding a panel of some sort?
It can be, it's usually made up of pieces about 2-4" wide or so glued onto a backing board of MDF or ply.

I'd have thought that there is something underneath like plywood and they just stick down moulded wood over the top.

Yes probably, have you seen mouldings like that off the shelf....

Would be a nightmare to try and make.

I think it's CNC cut. If you can't find it off the shelf, maybe a CNC service can make some for you.

Easy for a man who can make a boat :)

Also, could anyone recognize these - pine decorative panelling,

they are curved like a coving..
Could use some pieces of coving side by side like this?

I would make the reeded ones the same as I would make them for tambours. Joint both edges of a number of boards, run them past a router (shaper if I was better equipped), sand if desired and then rip them off on the table saw. Repeat until you have the pile desired. Jointing the edges wouldn't necessarily be needed each time. Handling wide boards is easier and safer than trying to profile a lot of thin pieces. Then you can put them on sheet stock or directly on the wall, whatever you prefer. Narrow coves could be done the same way at least to the limitations of the lumber thicknesses and router bits available.

I do like the look of wide coves as a feature wall.
