How are wood mouldings applied to furniture?

I've seen wood mouldings sold in home improvement warehouses. I always thought that the mouldings were a part of the furniture, and not added on later. How does this work?

Wood "mouldings" were hand carved into furniture in the majority of antique and expensive modern furniture. Currently, the piece of furniture is designed with extra space for moulding. The moulding is cut to size, construction adhesive is added, and it is placed on the furniture. Nail holes are pre-drilled and finishing nails are used to secure it.

They are used for decorative purposes, and usually applied to a piece to increase value. They are additionally used on cabinet doors, bathroom vanities, and porches. They are applied using nails or wood glue.

You just glue them on. But they need to be glued on with a special wood furniture glue, with a strong hold, so they remain in place for aver long time. If the furniture you intend to aplly it on has varnish, than you should choose a different type of glue.

Wood mouldigs are added either with glue or wood tacs. Its quite simple to do with a tac gun. you just cover the holes with hole filler.
