Capital and Crown Blocks

Used as bases for door, window and fireplace framing, plinth blocks can also be used for columns or pilasters. Simple and functional, plinth blocks are often used at the base of fireplaces and doors to bring the eye upward to the mantel or carved rosettes. For several millennia plinth blocks have been used and have been seen with such inscribing as moulding, bas relieves or written engravings.

In present-day North America decorative plinth blocks can be carved with classic patterns such as daisies or targets, or with symbols or elements from nature such as leaves, fruits, seashells, animals, and suns. Such materials like poplar, oak, mahogany, white pine, maple and cherry are available to be used to create the distinct and unique plinth blocks. All of the plinth blocks at Guide to Wood Carvings are hand carved and can be finished, painted or left unfinished to match the decor of your home. Ready to install and ready to create a distinguished, classic look, plinth blocks are affordable, durable and most of all beautiful.
