These are accurate reproductions of Victorian style plinth blocks that can be found at most lumber yards or molding & millwork retailers.
The door or window casings you can use with them are:
Do not use these plinth blocks with casings that are not bilaterally symmetrical.
Bilaterally symmetrical casings can be cut in half lengthwise and each half will be a mirror image of the other.
If your casing is thicker than your plinth blocks you can add a spacer to the back. A piece of 1/4″ thick mdf board is a good choice.
You can also trim this down on your table saw if you need a little less material.
