Help with Wainscoting

I want to build a wainscot flat panel. Simple!? Nope, not for me. :)
Its really for the front of a buffet type cabinet. Its about 8 feet wide and will have 3 panels...so not a lot of panels to build...

I purchased some 3/4" Oak Plywood 7ply. Why? I am not sure. But I got it and I am hoping I can use it.

I want to create something like this....but, for the life of me, I can not find any moulding to go with my 3/4 oak plywood (that will hide the edge) for the inside of the framing.

What type of moulding (name) can I use for my 3/4"
Should I get veneer edging on that inside edge and then get some moulding?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Check out the wainscoting

on my website www.crookedlittletree.com under room treatments. The rails and stiles are 3/4" veneered plywood. The panels are 1/4" mahogany veneered plywood with a molding I made on the router table from red oak to hold the panel in and cover the edges of the 3/4 ply. I used the face molding bit #C1383 from grizzly. Using 8/4 stock, I set up the contractor saw to cut an angle on the edge of the board that removed a majority of the material the router cutter would remove. Then I passed the edge of the board across the router table to create the profile. Then I removed the molding on the stationary cabinet saw and repeated the process until I had sufficient stock milled for the job.

Thanks for the response. Am I only left with making such moulding?

I really am hoping I can just find the trim at one of the big box stores or a local wood shop.

They make a profile called stair cap that would look ok, but the edge that lays against the wall might have a beaded effect. There is another profile called base cap that is very similar to stair cap that doesn't have the rounded bead...Like a cove moulding with a bit of an ogee on it. See the attachment from my local yard's catalog...

Lowes and Home Depot aren't going to have this. You need to go to a millwork supply house or a good building center. Those type of places will have at least a couple things that will work.

You aren't painting that oak plywood are you???

Thanks!

I plan to stain that oak my friend!

This is my plan for a theater like room in my basement. The box on the left is to hide a sump pump.
The rest is for aesthetics and to hide speakers.
The screen is about 96" diagnol using a Front Projector
So while I called it wainscotting, its really for the face of this cabinet with the same affect as Wainscot panels.

The face of this main cabinet is 89" x 21.5
The face of the left box is 35" x 21.5

from these measurement I planned on 2 1/4" top rails, 4" bot rails and 2 1/2" stiles

Any good lumber yard will have a goodly stock of oak moldings. Use a nice cove molding and it will look suhweet. You do realize that you can make this real easy with a SINGLE panel?

It`s called Speudo panneling...non-rabited pannelmold. Topically applied... you can make your own molding...real easy!

You need to wrap the area with 1x3" styles... run the edges and outside corners first...then apply thr rails allowing for base and a cabinet nosing. Mount the oak with the grain verticle... allow about 1/2" between styles and rails...panel molding will hide this gap. You`ll need to trim that with 3/4" rabbited panel mold or glassbead. Then wrap with base and apply the nosing. Rick
