« Part 2: Sorting and Layout Part 3 of 17th Century Jacobean Oak paneled room series Part 4: What to keep and what to replace. »

We did not have enough space to layout the entire room on the floor, so once I got a sense of how things went together, I measured everything, assigned a number to each one of the parts and plotted all the pieces on the computer. Much easier to drag around and piece the puzzle together. (also much less likely to break some very old and brittle wood) 17th century meets 21st century. :)

Some of the notes appear below.

Next – What to keep and what to replace.

This is growing even more impressive with each post. I simply cannot imagine taking this jumble of panels and molding and piecing them together. I can only imagine how difficult it would have been if you didn’t have picture to go by. I can see that having the ceiling built at a specific height would help but, I will be honest, I do not like jig saw puzzles and it seems to me that is what this was- but on a more massive scale.

Keep the post coming. Thomas is right in a way. To me rather than a mind limbering project it would appear to be more of a mind numbing one.

But I am enjoying this.

Excellent post Marshall. I really could get into a project like this. Question though…The room dimensions obviously have to differ so how did you overcome coming up a half panel short, or for that matter…half a panel too long?

Dadoo,
>>>Question though…The room dimensions obviously have to differ so how did you overcome coming up a half panel short, or for that matter…half a panel too long?<<<

I hope to answer some of this as I get farther into the blog. :) Because the project was completed just under 5 years ago, I am still sweeping away some of the cobwebs in my head to remember just what I did.

Your questions ( and others ) help me to do just that.
