Definition of "Molding"

Method of finishing edges of walls, window jams, doors, or projections with decorative strips of wood to give a better appearance as well as providing protection from jagged edges and helping in preventing drafts. Molding may be fabricated from any material; however, almost all are made from wood. In classical times, molding was made from stone. Molding is now mass produced and can be purchased ready made although it still must be cut to size.
