A dentil moulding is a moulding that has a decorative tooth-like pattern in it. The tooth-like pattern is often accomplished by running an insert that a series of dados are cut into the piece to form the tooth pattern. The insert can then be glued and or nailed in place, and gives the appearance that the moulding is one solid piece.
