heres a little different twist to wainscoting. as far as i know its my own design as ive never seen it done like this . i had a customer who wanted something a little ” different ” . so when i mentioned this idea she really lit up . i actually built 2 panels right on my shop wall first to see if i could pull it off and how time consuming it would be so i could price it out fairly. and also to give her a clear example of what it would look like . its all done in poplar with birch ply in the panels. applied basecap moulding for the trim . the moulding was a real challenge . some time haveing to trim off some too small to measure if the piece was a little too big eyeball it and hope !

Very nice work mrtrim , That is a great design and obvisiously a lot more work but it was well worth the effort.

Nice work Mr Trim. Love the thick look of the design. You do great work, you’ve got some pretty fortunate customers.

thanks everyone .
BRAD a lot of trips is very much an understatement ! i shoulda had some kinda mileage binder in the contract !
shaun thanks for the great compliment however i consider my self the fortunate one . i did a lot of years of hangin doors , runnin baseboard and crown and all the “grunt ” stuff . now im lucky enough to get to do mostly ” fun ” stuff . i actually enjoy the design end of it more than the actual work !
