Default Need some help with raised panel wainscot

I am planing on installing raised panel wainscot with a chair rail. Raised panel will be 3/4", the chair rail will be approx 1 1/2" in depth.

Question, how or what is the best method to trim the windows and doors where the chair rail meets the casing? both the wainscot and chair rail are thicker than the casings.

Hi, here's a site to check out www.garykatz.com . He's a finish carpenter and covers this in some of his dvd's. I have his sets & they cover a lot of info. You could do a self return on the casing, a miter that tapers into the casing. Hard to say without a picture of situation & what the molding looks like.

Hi, I don't know if you like the look but you could add a back band around the outer edge of casing & butt your chair into it. I would make the back band about 1-5/8" to give a little reveal.

Jlord gives you some good suggestions, and I agree...it's hard to tell without seeing exacting which trim you are using. I will tell you that it quite often boils down to a personal preference. My personal preference is doing returns...it's consistent, it's crisp and acceptable in pretty much any period. Tapering (IMHO) looks like an afterthought...but hey, that's just me.

OK, I'm an idiot I just re-read your post.....if you are doing raised panels then you are doing rails/stiles too. How many doors/windows we talking here ? You've a few options, but without seeing trim I'm guessing here....but I'd consider re-trimming windows/doors.

I'd like to see what you are using.......

Hi Barry:
If you have just begun the rails and stiles thing, I would like to hear more from you. I am very interested in producing rails/stiles and some raised panels too . . . . but have zilch experience in routing. What gear are you using?
