Wanted: Dura-Craft strip wood trim

by brae  

If anyone building a Dura-Craft kit has some of this left over and doesn't plan to use it, I'll take it off your hands.  It's wood (pine maybe) trim 1/8" x 11/32" x 24".  These strips are made from different colors of wood spliced end to end.

I prefer the ones without the finger jointed splices but I am willing to take any that are roughly the same size and have the precise look and feel of these - mixed up colors and textures, the rough surface.

I'm not sure if the ones I have are from the Heritage or the old kit I have random parts left over from (think it was a Dura-Craft Victorian Mansion).  I have a bundle of these boards, but I need quite a bit more for what I have in mind.

I'm happy to pay for shipping plus a little for the trouble.  Just send me an email.  :]  Thank you!

Hey Brae, Don't know exactly if this fella has Duracraft trim, but he does sell trim and has quite the variety. I get most of my trim from him and he's very reliable. I know that he makes a lot of the trim himself, so he may just have some spliced pieces. He has an eBay store as well, you might take a look there first but I'm sending you his contact info so you can either call or email with your question. Hope this helps. ~Wing~ Manchester Wood Works Mark West 10000 Wildlife Ridge Manchester, MI 48158-9473 (734) 428-9036 mmagwers@scbglobal.net Austinnoggles@manchesterdollhouseandwoodworks.com (eBay)

Thanks, Wing! I have ordered from them before for other pieces. I am looking for the real thing in this instance, not an equivalent so I don't think that shop will have what I am looking for. I need it to match as closely as possible to what I have.

I checked my stash. Thought I had a few pieces but I must have used them - or Koda took them. Good luck on your hunt

I love these: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=40840&cat=1,250,43217 "Cherry Veneer Strips Available in three widths (1/8", 3/16" and 1/4"), all 24" long. The strips can be used for a variety of projects, such as model making, strip flooring on model boats or dollhouses, or inlay work." One tube lasts me about 2 years.

Thanks for the link! I really need the exact match to what I have, but that is an excellent source to have. :yes:

Do you still need the trim? I recently bought the same house your haunted heritage is and discovered it didn't have all the parts to make it. There is some trim in there, not very much. You are welcomed to it since the main components to the house are missing and cannot make the house now.
