Is there a way to add shadow box molding to a kitchen island?  I know I can do the pony wall feature to do a beadboard wainscoting type of thing, but I am more looking for the actual boxed out trim.  I can add a fake soffit and add horizontal moldings but don't know about the vertical parts.  And in any case I'd want the corners mitered.

 

I couldn't find any kind of library object.

 

Actually, for that matter, how would I go about doing this kind of box molding for, say, a stairway or a hallway?

I don't think you can make your own, but consider using a picture frame as a stand in.

Thanks to both of you.  Yes, those picture frames look like what I have in mind, though I wasn't able to find those.  What is exact title of those objects?

 

David,  thanks for the video.  What I am referring to is also often called "box molding", I have even seen some people call it wainscoting but I am not sure that is accurate.  It's often found in hallways, stairways and dining rooms

Search the Library for "frame". Once you find one, right click it and choose Show in Browser. You will be in the area of Picture Frames.

 

The other two are Wall Panels.

Sounds like you mean "Chair Rail molding", those can be added via Room Specification Dialogs, you are just limited to what is currently in the Library Browser or make it in Sketch UP and import.
