My dad needed a cap on the top of this ugly pony wall in his new office.
The original drywall job was pretty sloppy anyway, so this really made a difference. I built it in the shop out of 2×10 clear Douglas Fir and also pre-finished it in the shop. I matched the stain on the rest of the woodwork in the office as shown in the third photo. The “trim” on the underside is screwed from underneath, so there are no visible nail holes. After a little scraping of the sloppy drywall mud it fit snuggly in place. A little “Liquid Nails” on the bottom holds it down.
Its funny how just a little custom woodwork can make such a big difference in a room. Now they can use it as a shelf for a potted plant or something.
