I spent most of today resawing two cedar beams and turning them into 3/8 tongue and groove paneling for my closet… It’s what my bride requested.
Everything I’ve seen in the world seems to indicate that starting at the floor and going up is the way to go and starting at the ceiling and working my way to the floor is either a sin or never done.
I’ve resawed my T&G boards to 5” and I want to end one a full board at the ceiling. At the floor I have an 8” tall molding so I’m not concerned about where I end…i.e. full board or a sliver won’t matter…because I’ll be hiding it behind that tall molding
I’m looking for input from you folks on your thoughts as to why I wouldn’t want to start at the ceiling with my first full board with my groove at the ceiling and working towards the floor??
I’m assuming I’m just flipping the install process but I haven’t really thought about why this might be a bad idea.
I’d really like some comments. Am I missing something here.
