My local millworks, Clarks Lumber can match any sample you send them. You may be able to find a local millworks who can do the same.

Re: Matching Old House Trim

if you want that exact profile youll have to go to a mill as mentioned. or a hardwood supplier that makes moldings.. the only thing is it isnt exactly cheap.. typically they charege $200 to make the knife that creates the profile then another $150 or so to set up the shaper table.. from there you pay for how many feet you want
