Here’s the library of real big house we did the interior of for a builder client. I really enjoy library designs / installs because we really get to go ‘over the top’ on them, even if we really didn’t on this one so much. Another shot is of the wainscoating in the pool room, and one of the dining room with a nice mantel and interesting ceiling detail. Nothing to fancy just small enhancements to unusually large rooms..

Very nice craftsmanship. Did you do it all yourself, or do you have a crew? Thanks for sharing.

Well-done. I love the look of a formal library.

The work is great. Wonderful craftsmanship.
The cherry in the library-Does it have a stain finish? Or just topcaots?
In the picture it appears to have a cinnamon glaze look.

Thanks for posting

Thanks for all the kind words guys, cant take all the credit though…

Trifern, jobs like this.. I put together a crew. Im fortunate to have some great talent in good friends.

Dave, yes it is finished with a oil based stain, sealed, glazed, then topcoated with a conversion varnish.

Nice work, but the casing on the windows is wrong. The window casing should prevail not the wainscot. The legs should not be broken by the wainscot and then the panels would be (incidentally) more evenly divided. But the bottom line is that the window trim shouldn’t be interrupted by the wainscot. By maintaining this paradigm you would also eliminate the awkward broken spots in the stiles on the bay window.

Barry, most cities are allowing outlets in the baseboards, but it requires the builder to do one of two things, either think about it during the electrical install, or paying us to move them. Niether of which happened on this house. I do like the look though and if inserted into the critical path before electrical is done, can also be less expensive as we can cut the boxes into the bottom rail as we’re installing it saving the electrican having to install a box and the sheetrocker having to cut around it. But again people have to think ahead, which as we know doesn’t always happen.

Grump, thanks for your opinion. I have about a dozen different wainscot designs I offer clients, including designs where the casings prevail. They choose, I install.
