Wall Paneling

This was my first major wood working project.   It is not uncommon for one to try out woodworking after retiring.   So I shall try it out.

I had a large garden tub, which took up a space of 7 x 7 1/2 feet.   Removing the tub was a project in itself.   But when the tub was gone, it left a total of 22 feet of wall space vacent.   This was over three of the walls.

Paneling Clear

The panels are lightly figured Makoré veneer, which I purchased over E-bay.   The veneer was glued on ¼ inch plywood.   Two coats of glue (Titebond II) were applied to both the plywood and veneer and left to dry.   Then the veneer was ironed on to the plywood.   This method did have problems and took to mainly hours. The (14) panels are floating in the frames.

The framing is Red Oak.   This was stained with a cherry colored stain to match the Makoré veneer.   The frame pieces are floating.   The only glued piece was the chair rail piece to the header at the top.

Paneling 2

The bottom of the frame was fastened to the wall with a mitered cleat.   The top of the frame was screwed to the house studs with exposed brass screws.   Hence the entire assembly can be removed in a few minutes.

The finish used was Minwax Antique Oil Finish.

Currently the plan is to lay down flooring with ¾ pre-finished natural Red Oak .
