Fluted Molding is a particular style of trim that is widely popular and easy to incorporate into cabinetry, book cases, entertainment centers, and many other custom furniture & trim applications.
Fluted Molding is generally recognized by its distinct flutes, (often also referred to as ribs or ridges) that typically run the length of inside of the molding.
Consecutive flutes create a clean symmetrical design that is commonly complimented with other Wood Moldings & Carvings such as Rosettes & Plinth Blocks. A combination of these moldings is often used to trim doorways & windows and can also be used to create unique Chair Rail creations.

Round & Square Flute Sizes
Fluted Moldings are offered in both Round (RF) and Square (SF) Flute Shapes in various Flute Sizes. WalzCraft’s standard available Flute Sizes include ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, 5/8” & ¾”. The standard spacing between each flute is 3/8”, with other spacing available. Flute depths are half of the flute widths.
Fluted Molding Stop / Start Patterns
A Start/Stop Pattern (SSP) must be specified for both the top and bottom of your Fluted Moldings upon ordering. Our SSP Fluted Molding Patterns are available in options that run the Full Length (FL) or Not Full Length (NFL) of the molding. For those SSP Patterns that do not run the full length of the molding, various patterns are offered to create a design that will suit any taste.
For all Not Full Length (NFL) Start/Stop (SSP) Patterns, please also specify the distance from the top / bottom of the molding to the start of the longest flute. This allows you to completely customize your Fluted Molding for any design / installation requirements.
Fluted Molding Ordering Guidelines:
- Note Round or Square Flutes
- Flute Size
- Quantity & Exact Required Sizes for each Fluted Molding Piece (W x L)
- Number of Flutes per Molding (See Minimum Molding Width Per Flute Size Chart)

Integral Rout Patterns
In addition to a range of Start/Stop Flute Patterns, WalzCraft also offers Integral Rout Patterns (IR) that can be incorporated onto your custom Fluted Molding pieces.
Integral Rout Patterns are either circular or square in shape and are often placed at the top and/or bottom of a Fluted Molding to serve as an additional accent touch.
When ordering Integral Rout Patterns, please specify: the IR Pattern, the measurement from the top or bottom of the molding to the center of the IR Pattern, the Start/Stop (SSP) Pattern(s) for your Fluted Molding, and the Start/Stop (SSP) measurement for any Not Full Length (NFL) SSP Patterns – distance from the top / bottom of the molding to the start of the longest flute.
