THis weeks work "Wainscot"

Just some quick shots of what we built up and installed this week. About 200 linear feet of wainscot panels. They are simple panels pocket holed together.(than you for the Kreg Forman) made really quick work. There is an applied molding going inside them. I will fabricate a chair to match the sill profiles.

More photos to follow.

If anyone has experience with the reversible Wainscot router bits, I would love to hear about it.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Very interesting. Is it normal for the wainscot to be constructed at this stage of construction?

Me too . I was thinking , if another taller board was added to the railing going down the stairs , it would actually be functional?

I don't actaully know anything about CNC router tables , but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night

It is great for the carpenters, the painter will be the one cussing.

Also the drywall must be really good as it will be hard to texture with all the panels.

THis is a new builder for me and he has some really peculiar ideas and ways of doing things. The following conditions applied because i was not involved pre framing. The stairs are pre built the framer installed to close to framing. I wanted to remove the drywall to create the look i have attached pics to in previous jobs. He feels using drywall is cheaper. 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.

Anthony, I did not mean to criticize your job. The last pictures are of a different job and that is the correct way to do things. The first pictures being more work for the painter as they have to paint around all that detail.

Here the walls in residential are most often textured for the reasons you cite of the quality of finishing. On the commercial side it is all flat wall.
Residential is bid very competitively, and the Quality suffers unless it is a high end job, and bid by high end subcontractors.

In any event I am sure it will look good in the final product as you seem very persistent in quality control.
