This house remodel had a den with mahogany raised panel wainscoting and mantel. The client wanted the whole room panelled to match the one existing wall. The new room was to be painted, so all the new work was constructed out of solid poplar and MDF panels. All the work was done on site.

Looks fantastic. Did you use any panel molding or offset rabbet molding to bridge the raised panel with the stiles and rails? Once again exceptional work

Wow, very nice work. I’ve done wainscotting, and it is fun, but challenging. Nicely done.

Thank you for all your kind comments. Since the finish was to be paint grade, it was decided to install a loose panel and apply sticking to house the panels. The original mahogany wall is cope and stick jointery.

lol, I didn’t even notice you said the original walls were mahogany.. I’m sure you offered to do all the demolition yourself, free of charge..

The builder had already had the demo done. All new room reconfiguration, with drywall in place and primed when I got there. The original room as I understand was all mahogany. I basically replicated it in paint grade materials. It was a fun build.

Have your say...
