i was looking for something to post and decided to go with wainscoting . a lot of this ive posted on l j but i thinks works here as well . feel free to post your own wainscoting on here . i enjoy seeing other folks styles and work
i just commented on pabulls project that beadboard has been back around for some time now . a lot of the guys are doing the “old school style ” such as bead board all around , chairrail at the top and base at the bottom . i do it a little different , i do a frame first and put the b. board into the frame
this first pic is a style of beadboard called picwick it has a cove in it as well as a bead

Photobucket

this is reg. b. board hard to see since its painted white

one of my favorites is this brazilion cherry
COOK BRAZ. CHERRY WAINSCOTING

heres something different , this is my music room at my house oak stiles and rails mohoganycenters and wrapped with oak basecap

VERNES WAINSCOTING

this next one is about as much fun as a dose of the phillopino clap . but looks cool when its over

TAMMIS WAINSCOTING

painted frames with curley maple centers

Looking very nice! Mr T.

I see some great ideas here.

Let me run up to my house and take some pictures of our bead board.

I wanted to do one similar to the picture of your music room, but the wife nixed it. These are some great ideas.
Thanks for the post.

well bull i guess everyone has thier way of reading things now in my view i was not gettin down on the married man . simply taking one of the few opportunities to get up on the single man ! you see at 56 yr. old its getting harder to find positive things about being single . one of the things ive said many times is this , when we start getting older and less healthy maybe start haveing little accidents like crappin in our pants a bit we need someone there that really , really loves us . everyone else is gonna be pissed !! lol
now to answer your question , yes i was married , truth is my divorce settlement has been the butt of many a joke over at l j . in fact it was brought up in a thread just yesterday ! does that bother me ? no way ! after all im the one that started it . some of it is true some fiction , because after all it all started as a joke !

Sorry to hear your story, this sure influences some ones view on marriage.

I am happily married. And as you noticed eleven kids, two moved out, six adopted from countries like The Marchall Islands, Guatemala and one from Hawaii.

Getting a little side tracked from wainscoting…..

no need to be sorry bull , first it was many yrs. ago like 1979 i think , second , the truth is i paid a dear price for the best lawyer there was and i actually got everything aside a few things i gave her willingly .i havent missed her for one second from that day to this . sound a little too rosy to ya ? your right we had two children and thats what has haunted me , and also why i didnt jump right back in the game . after the childhood i had i should have been the last one to ever let two small children pay for a mistake i made . my view on marrige . there isnt a better way by far to make the journey thru life happily married . i might add that theres nothing you could do to impress me more than adopting children . i wish more people did it . hats off to you bro. your a true hero

Very beautiful wainscoting images! I applied it in my living room last week and am very pleased with the look. I found great images and ideas at wainscotinglongisland.com.

Love that Brazilian Cherry! I’m planning for some wainscoting in the foyer, breakfast nook and library. The foyer will get raised panels and bolections, nook will get running beadboard and the library, beadboard panels. All will be stained and lacquered. Dang, I’m tired just thinking about it.

Any tips/pointers for us noobs?

always,
J.C.

yes it was great fun bull , some of it i just made up as i went along . the home builders all have nice things to say about how nice it is to take their clients in there and show them rather than drawing it out

yes i only work for homeowners . it seems that if you work for builders they get thinking they own you . soon they are telling you what your going to do when your going to do it and how much there going to pay you .
so basicly you set up a business , carry all the responsibilitys like ins. and comp , employees ,ect but your really nothing more than their employee . thers a lot more but i think ill leave it there ! lol

Ups, sorry I asked, MrT. But I can see your point. I am self employed too, and I have customers that will tell me the when and where and how much they will pay me for my product as if they own the place.

Okay MrTrim, how do you deal with uneven walls? Do you build out, shim the lot and scribe your chair rails to fit? Or what? Or do you cut out drywall and shim ledgers in place so you can attain a trued run on which to nail your wainscoting?

I’m planning on building up my own chair rail for the remaining projects as you just can’t find decent/consistent chair rail at the Big Box stores AND my only decent local supplier bellied up after seventy five years! So I’ll make my own from here on out. Any pointers are most appreciated, mon ami.

always,
J.C.

P.S. Next time I’m in your area, I’ll buy lunch if you’re available.

You betcha! But you’ll need about three days in the car to get here so I’ll give you a head start. Can any of the kids drive yet? You could sleep while… nev’ mind.

j c , i probably could easily do about a 6 pg. post to answer to you question in detail . ill try the short version first . we can use the phone for further detail . first off i build wainscoting in wall sections in the shop and then take them to the job and apply to the wall . i dont worry too much about the walls unless their really bad . i also dont nail or screw it to the walls too solid or glue it theres many reasons why you may have to take it apart in the future and you dont want to destroy it getting it apart and reusing it . example , i finished a wain. job one day and that nite the owner called and said i hit a waterline in the wall as there was water seeping from under the wains. i agreed with him because i knew there was a water heater on the other side of the wall in the corner where it was leaking . i removed the wain. and it turned out it was a leak in the slab not a nail . the plumber fixed it and i put the wains back together . it only took me about 1 hour to remove it and put it back . it turns out im starting a small wains. job the first of the week so ill take some pics of my process as i go . if you do get over here it would be really great for you to meet the folks at weiss hardwoods and they are just across the driveway from my shop . good folks to do bus. with and they stock a lot hardwoodmouldings and lumber as well as some exotics and they are open on sat. before i forget ill tell you i dont know what wood you plan to use for this , but i have about maybe 6 stix 12 / 14 ft long of oak chair rail ive had left over from a job about a yr. ago that your welcome to take free if you need it for your project .
im sure we will talk more about it in time . verne
