In Classical architecture, the plain portion of the pedestal of a column, between the base and the cornice (or cap).

In later architecture, a dado is a wall's paneled or decorated lower part, up to 2–3 ft (60–90 cm) above the floor and defined by a horizontal molding. Interior walls were so treated especially in the 16th–18th century. In carpentry, a dado is a rectangular groove cut across the grain of a wood member.

      in Classical architecture, the plain portion between the base and cornice of the pedestal of a column and, in later architecture, the paneled, painted, or otherwise decorated lower part of a wall, up to 2 or 3 feet (60 to 90 cm) above the floor. Internal walls were so treated between the 16th and the 18th century, though toward the close of that period the dado was left plain and merely defined by a rail along the wall.
