Architrave / Header Moulding 5-1/2" - 4

This southwest style architrave/header moulding 5-1/2" - 4 measures 5.500" wide by 1.500" thickness. This rather large tiered header is composed of a 2-3/8" wide sunk fillet in the center, attached to a 1-1/2" wide by 3/8" deep and a 5/8" wide by 3/8" deep stepped lines with 1/8" eased edges on one side, and a 1" wide by 3/8" tall raised fillet on the opposite side. The profile is oriented in the moulder with the thicker side up against the fixed inside fence, a simple lateral movement of 1-9/16" outward and 3/8" downward of the molder pressure shoe and it will sit evenly on the two flat surfaces as shown in the picture above.
