Learn how to install scribe molding in closets

Eric Marshall, The Closet Training Institute, will hold a Molding & Scribe Clinic on April 18 at the Schaumburg Convention Center during the Closets Expo.

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Looking to elevate the look of your closet organizing systems? Then, adding scribe molding might just be what you need to give your closets a custom built-in furniture appeal.

Scribe molding, a thin strip of wood or melamine used to cover gaps between cabinets or between cabinets and walls, can create a seamless and finished look. It is typically installed by cutting it to the appropriate length and then nailing or gluing it along the edges where cabinets meet walls or other surfaces.

It can be a simple yet effective way to give your project a polished and professional look while covering any gaps or imperfections.

If you want to learn more about installing scribe molding, Eric Marshall, The Closet Training Institute, is hosting a clinic on Thursday, April 18, at the Schaumburg Convention Center during the Closets Conference & Expo from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Marshall will demonstrate how to install fillers, use connectors, and use the proper technique to scribe and will discuss the benefits of adding fillers and moldings.

He adds that this session is for everyone, especially installers, but it can also “help salespeople understand how to use molding in a closet.”

Demonstrations will include:

  • Cutting compound miters on moldings
  • Ripping and scribing fillers to match on square and unlevel walls
  • Using connectors, such as screws, nails, and fittings
