    In the one bedroom I missing 10 feet of baseboard. I just wondering if this type of baseboard can be bought. Could this trim be made by myself? If I make the baseboard how I would go about it? I made a cardboard template of the baseboard

    It’s hard to see by the pictures , but it looks fairly easy to replicate in one of the pictures ,
    Will you be keeping it painted 🤷‍♂️

    Kind of hard to tell by your picks. But I think this is close.

    It is called a ranch profile and should be available at about any lumber yard or big box. That profile is fairly common. I don’t think I would mess with trying to make it as it is fairly inexpensive.

    Looks like a fairly standard moulding.

    How old is it? Some standard mouldings by manufacturers have gotten slimer over the years/decades from what they once were, but not so much that backing it with something like card stock or whatever to compensate and once installed, the DAP stuff can hide such minor discrepencies.

    Thanks Kurt! I will look at the big box when I go there next. I won’t be trying to make it if I can buy it. I didn’t know it was fairly common. This is the first time for me see this type of baseboard.

    I have no idea how old it is.

    I will keep this tip mine if I have this issue. Thank you.

    I’d shy away from that in a wet/humidity environment like a bathroom, but in a bedroom you’d be just fine.

    I curious why you say this?

    The bathroom has been updated and it has different baseboard.

    I am not replacing all the baseboard in the house. I need to 2 pieces of this baseboard in one of the bedrooms. It had been removed when they build a build in along those walls.

    Card stock could end up getting moldy if used as a space backer in a bathroom.
