Window Wainscote,
Ok. This is my first try posting photos. I hope it will go through. Anyways, this is my ongoing project right now. And this is the reason why I got into the woodworking. I did some other project before this like my combo saw/router table and a small jewelry cabinet which I will post later. This raised panel wainscoting was long overdue. My BOSS keep on asking me when I’m gonna start the wainscoting in the living room. LOL. I told her that I need some tools and knowledge before starting the wainscote. Ehhhhhh it took more than a year ha ha. But she’s really happy now and impress even though it’s not painted yet. I used 3/4 MDF because we wanted to paint it white anyway. Not yet finish but we’re getting there. :)

The wainscoting is really going to improve the looks of the room. And you did a great job in convincing your wife that you needed some new tools to get started.

I would enjoy seeing pictures of the room when you have finished.

That looks great! I don’t know how much experience you have with painting MDF, but I’m glad someone told me how to get it nice and smooth. You have to use an oil based primer, i just use Kilz. After about a day you can sand the mdf and all the fuzzy stuf on the edges will be nice and smooth. It’s a pain in the butt to sand all those profiles, but it turns out really smooth. Maybe the boss can help you with that part.

Glad you held out for the tools!! I’m a hold out too! Great simple but elegant design and the MDF was a good idea…. why spend the money on expensive wood if you are only going to paint it. Great idea.
