No worries Herb. I am the new guy. I just wanted to show i know the right way of doing things. I appreciate constructive criticism. (No Snowflake Here) . OFten times we are stuck doing what we dont want to do.

Not my first rodeo.

Interesting series of pics / posts. Thanks for putting them up.

Been at sea most of my life and still all at sea now.



Sometimes I sits and thinks and sometimes I just sits .

I told him to buy the materials for true panel work and i would eat the labor to demo the drywall. (I guess 15 sheets of 1/4" sandaply would break the budget). The Drywall job is hideous. The framing is even worse behind that. We have spent 40 manhours tearing out drywall around openings and correcting issues. The story of a finish carpenter.(sorry about the rant) No place for our work to hide.

I do agree with the wider board at the bottom see attached pics. I get stuck with choosing evils on the job. Sometimes you have to let the owner be the one doing the choosing. The guy with the checkbook may not be right but it is his call. I did a mach up with the taller rail at the bottom and he vetoed it.

Herb we do not texture our walls or ceilings all smooth finished. These finishers can barely achieve a level 2 at best. My father was a finisher, he was one of the few able to obtain a level 5 finish. To do so everything before him had to be done properly and without fail.


In the attached photos I had total control of the job. I have researched proper techniques on panel work for quite a while. I nailed this one with what i consider to be the proper placement and transition of all components. GAry Katz has a video serious that i purchesed a while back. His information is invaluable. I also am always on the lookout for old pattern books that was the bible for carpenters. Anderson actually produces them at this point.
Thanks. Good explanation and photos.

Some beam work.

SO spent the majority of the morning furring really bad framing so we could start the wrap. Bottoms of the beams are rabbeted. Sides are dado-ed. We got about half of the sides installed. THese are just shots of at lunch.

Room is only about 1 1/2" out of square.

Perimeter is 1x6 held at 6" off of wall.
1x8 Bottom of beam. Rabbet is 1/2" x 1/2" leaving a 1/4"x 1/2" tongue.

Beams all wrapped up!!

Finished the beam wraps today. Framers are not my friend on this one!!!

Builder is probably gonna have me take down my crown and install wood panels level.

Will be finishing up the wainscot and starting on the built in work, next week. Need to finish up the workbench tomorrow and get rid of the uc cart and wings.

THx Rick

I am starting another one bigger than this when i finish here. Considering on doing a daily progress for the job. Documenting some of my processes and the way we handle the customs in a production type environment. Would give me a chance to get some input from others and maybe improve the way i do things and help some others out.

Not my first rodeo.
