After walking the moulding isles for about 35 minutes, I determined the most cost effective way to give me the look I wanted was to purchase unfinished shoe base moulding at $0.64/linear foot. The price was right, the wood finish was perfect, and did I mention the price?
Once I determined the measurements I needed to frame all of the cards evenly, I broke out the miter saw. I cut the moulding into 32 small and 32 larger pieces.
I will say, if you ever want to by a power tool, buy a miter saw! It was my first tool and I have gotten my use out of it. Trust me.

Wood glue plus the staple would have provided stability. Spread the glue, put the corner in the jig, push it together and staple it. Wipe off excess glue with a damp rag.
Great thinking! I think that’s a good point. It would add stability for sure.
Thank you for sharing and reading along.
