Part #7106.72 The Half Dowel Molding is a smooth molding void of reeding or fluting. It might be termed as a plain dowel molding, but there are times when plain is preferred. Plain round spindles, rounds and half rounds can be traced back to Shaker furniture. The Shakers, closely related to the Quakers, actually originated their denomination in England in the 18th century. However, today we trace most of their simple but functional furniture designs back to a couple of the larger settlements of Shakers in Massachusetts or Pennsylvania. Couple the Half Dowel Molding with other Osborne Wood Products items including the 7100 10 inch Half End, 7102 5-1/2 inch half end, 7102 Half Spool or the 7103 Small Cap Onlay for a simple, yet elegant look.
