I have two repair jobs that I think are going to be facilitated by
some casting resin.
First, the surface molding on some kitchen cabinet doors is broken and
missing. I have no chance of matching it with wood but if I can mold
some of what remains and cast replacement parts then put a faux wood
finish on it, I think it'll be OK.
Second, I'm missing the brass filigree around a key hole on the drawer
of an antique desk. I can make a mold from the piece on another
drawer and then cast something and paint it with antique brass paint
and have a decent match.
I remember "Castolite" from my youth and Googled it and found some
hits. Googling "casting resin" led to
and others but I'd rather start with a recommendation. Anyone have a
favorite material or source they'd care to recommend?

No specific recommendations, but you might want to check out TAP
Plastics (http://tapplastics.com ), or maybe go to one of their stores.
They have a lot of mold-making and casting materials.
You were wrong, and I'm man enough to admit it.
don't have a great suggestion for the cabinet
but for the lock.......
Check these out and see if any will do the trick.
