Stepping Out

A 1x10 placed above creates the frieze, which is stepped out on the ends with an additional 1x block (shown at right). The frieze serves as a base for bed, dentil, and crown moldings used here to form a sophisticated cornice—the last element of a formal entablature. The built-out ends of the entablature are wrapped with mitered returns (not shown).
