Pediments & Crossheads

The crosshead (a.k.a. pediment, door header, mantle, etc) is among the earlier forms of doorway ornamentation and has seen a resurgence of late.  Our crossheads are constructed from two parts, the base and the crown, which we assemble into a single work of art.  The base of the crosshead should be from 1/2" to 5/8" wider than the total distance as measured to and from the outermost points of the casings, and 1/4" to 5/16" thicker.  The crown projects 5/8" beyond the base on three sides to give that elegant appearance without being excessive. 


Pricing is for paint grade poplar, unprimed, and is listed below in 6" to 12" increments due to limited space.  We will prorate pricing based on the actual length of each individual crosshead.
