Boston’s Old North Church may be most famous for its steeple lanterns, which once signaled the start of the American Revolution, but another standout characteristic of the building is its dentil molding.

Then he heads to Beverly, Massachusetts, to speak with fine furniture maker Phil Lowe about adding architectural detail to woodworking projects. After his trip Tommy returns to the workshop to build his Wall Cabinet, which features detailed dentil, cove and quarter round moldings.
