    Raised Panel Wainescoting walls ***Crown Molding up!***

    I posted about my powder room remodel here.. http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ghlight=powder

    I finished installing and painting today. This is my first experience with raised panels, and I learned a lot.

    Special thanks to Shaz for all his help, advice and patience with me on this project...

    Very nice job, Greg. I really like the return. (I was wondering how you (and Shaz) were gonna fix that.)

    Thanks, Vaughn...

    Yeah, I would rather use the 22.5 degree when the return can extend beyond the paneling, but I think it worked out well here. And.....it's done!

    Looks wonderful Greg, how does the boss like it

    When you move back here to Japan and live in one of our cardboard boxes, I bet you are really going to miss that nice American home you have now!

    Stu,

    Wife likes it

    When we move back, I plan on doing extensive remodeling and expansion on the house we get. Have no interest in getting a new home....I've seen/lived in enough to see they ain't worth it.

    What I will really miss is the lot...we have a shy acre here. We plan on probably getting a home on a 1/4 or 1/3 acre lot and then buying land further out for our mini farm. The area we are planning on moving to has a couple of DIY stores, as well as lots of local lumber yards.

    Chuck,

    How did you know I have all that "stuff", some still in boxes from many moves ago...in our garages... 3 bays stuffed! I gotta put some of it on craigslist!



    Rennie, Thanks, but just remember, what I did good, was because of the help I got. What I did otherwise, was just me stumbling through the project....

    Thanks much Chris,

    Compliments from you mean a lot. I'm still amazed by your kitchens, especially the one you made from the re-cycled wood. I still go back and look at that thread and dream about one day....!
