     1. (Arch.) A small convex molding; a reed (see Illust.
        (i) of Molding); one of several set close together to
            decorate a surface; also, decoration by means of
            reedings; -- the reverse of fluting.

     Note: Several reedings are often placed together, parallel to
           each other, either projecting from, or inserted into,
           the adjoining surface. The decoration so produced is
           then called, in general, reeding.
