The base molding is built up using four layered profiles, wrapped around the font's base. The profiles were formed by hand using several traditional wooden rounding planes and a good old regular block plane. I like the over all traditional look of the profile, but am thinking of making the final lower profile from stock a quarter of an inch wider. This version is 3-3/4 inches wide. Four inches would allow the rounded profile to extend over and beyound the base, creating a better shadow line and stronger visual impact.
