plinth block pine fir from Lowes Victorian Style Plinth Block

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.

Adjusting Thickness

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.
