Inspirational Dining Room Wainscoting
Some details can increase the foyer, dining room or office more than adding wainscoting, but you do not know where to start. Although there is a more complicated way to build a cable panel, we will discuss simple ways to get professional results without the need for complicated workshops. Let’s discuss the type of panel you can build. Starting with the hardest to the simplest, you can build uplifted panels, flat panels, beadboard panels, or photo frame panels.
Although the raised panel can be cut with a saw table, it is not the preferred equipment and requires gluing and clamping some boards together, which is always a concern for warping using large panels. Framing images is only the assembly of 4 prints of the same length and height on a specified wall or wall. This method is applied between the rail chair and base board with the same distance on all sides of each frame. The method we will discuss in detail is flat panel and beadboard style.
A. As with home improvement projects, we should discuss the tools needed to complete the project. You need to look at tables, saws, complete nail guns, sander belts, orbital sander, and safety glasses.
B. Remove the outlet cover, lap quarters, and side planks. Be careful to save existing boards and rounds.
C. The layout plan is essential for a smooth job. First, you need to determine if there are any electrical outlets that could interfere with the layout. A little initial planning will help you avoid channels coming out half way in or out of the panel.
D. Anatomy of the wainscoting panel consists of; rail, top and bottom rails, vertical style, style and rail molds, panels, sideboards, and lids. (before installing each piece, add glue to each of the joints and the back of each)
E.The backband should be the first element that is installed and used to give a thicker edge around the doors and windows to allow the cable panel to enter. These can be purchased at places that specialize in millwork or moldings. It is a trim piece about 3/4 “x 1 1/2” with one side shaped. It is mounted on the edge of the wall, around the crack of a door or window.

F. The overall height of wainscoting is generally about 36 “from the floor, depending on your preference, this can be different 6” either way. The “mission” mission style lamp is about 54 “Either way, set your height and increase the line on the wall / which you will use to label wainscoting.
G. You need to specify the rough width you want for each panel to be on a particular wall or room. You can create all panels of the same width for a particular wall or you can make all panels of the same width for a particular room. If you choose the latter, you will usually end up one panel beside a corner or a door smaller than the other.
I recommend that you take care of each wall separately and create a panel of the same size for a given wall, but within a few inches of the panel on the adjacent wall. While it is good to have all the panels in a given room of the same size, the most important element for a professional job is the same margin between all sides of every panel, angle, mold or doorstep.
H. Your margins are determined by the width of the vertical and the top and bottom rails. For the top rail and vertical styles, I recommend using 3/4 “x 3 1/2” wood. The width of the bottom rail depends on the width of the trim base board. If using a 3 1/4 baseboard, I would use a 3/4 “x 6 3/4” bottom rail, so it would give me a 3 1/2 “margin after the base board is installed.
I. Cut and attach the rails up and down the same distance apart. Place the top rail 3/4 “below the horizontal level line that you emerge as top of wainscoting When installing the bottom rail, make sure it is installed at the same distance apart from the top rail The gap between the bottom rail and the floor will be covered by the baseboard and quarter round.
J. Next takes the entire measurement of each wall to the corner or doorway. Reduce the number of vertical forces between each panel, as well as the forces used at each corner or doorstep, of the overall measurement. I have found panel width 36 “is a good place to start, so grab the overall width and divide by 36”.
If you end up with 3.68 “, for example, that means you can use panel 3 or 4. Then for the whole measurement with 3 or 4. This calculation will give the width of each panel.
K. Place the vertical force on each corner and next to each door. Then lay out the panel, remembering to allow the width of the vertical force used between each panel. I suggest you layout the entire room before installing the first individual panel or style used between each panel, to see if you have disturbance or distance problems.
If everything is all right, attach any remaining vertical styles. Now you have a frame for wainscoting, the rest is easy.
L. Measure, cut and attach plywood or beadboard for each opening. (Glue the back of each panel or vertical style that has no nails to nail.)
M. Then use a mold, such as a “base cap”, to be mounted around the perimeter inside each opening, while analyzing the angle.
N. Cut and install the baseboard and wainscoting board. This hat is similar in size and shape with backbanding and nailed at the top of wainscoting as a ledge. You can also install some bay prints under the cover to give some stability.
O. Sand the surface area, where the rails and forces combine, flush and smooth. Fill and shake, as needed, then paint.
After completing this project, you will be able to sit back and enjoy; “Job well done”. Remember to be careful, methodical and determined. The real secret to any carpentry project is planning and layout, as it can predict potential problems before installing the first part.
