Crown Style: Colonial 

The earliest crown was planed by hand from the New World's plentiful supply of wood. Simple profiles predominated, owing to the high cost of adding complicated carved details.

Inset: 2¼-inch-high B304 in ash, about $1.15 per linear foot, plus about $65 custom fee; Baird Brothers Sawmill
