I have been making raised panel wainscoting for my house using my table saw and router table. The project is going very well, but I have one quick question regarding finishing. Is it necessary to paint the sides and backs of the wainscoting (the parts not visible once installed)?
For some reason, I thought that I read somewhere that it was necessary to paint 100% of the pieces to minimize expansion and contraction. I did this for my first project but it was very time consuming. If it is not necessary, this is a step that i would gladly skip. Obviously it is an interior application. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
