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.
