I can't say I ever remember taking detail pictures of my miter joints. I'm not that vain I guess. My take is that this was the first time that you did wainscoting and were so proud of the job you did you posted your pictures on this form just to prove to everyone just how good you are. I think you did a good job. But a professional finish carpenter would laugh at all the trouble you went through to achieve such a basic job. Lets face it. There is only one difficult cut on your job,
Just to prove to you how simple it is. when i go back to work after Christmas I will take pictures of a simple jig to use on your sliding miter saw .

Leo,

Very nice work. I like the proportions. Are the wall moldings built up or are the an "off the shelf" item? How wide are they? How far off the floor is the top of the rail in the foyer area?

Thanks,
Don

Moldings are something I ran in my shop on my Williams and Hussey molder. I'm sure there is something similar out there. The moldings are 1 3/4" wide. The top of the chair rail is at 36"

I am one of the mods on the site if you didn't notice and I post a lot of my work so that others may learn. And no, this wasn't my first wainscot job. This is cheater wainscoting and truthfully it is beneath me. I would rather do a full frame and raised panel wainscot. I just found a very simple and nice way to do it that gets perfect results everytime and on top of it you get fabulous results.

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com

Why would something be beneath you. Customers pay for what they can afford.

Because these are not the projects I strive to get. This is trim carpenter stuff.

I have been a trim carpenter and stair builder for 37 years. Maybe that's why I know this stuff ! just like you probably know your shop stuff better than I do.
For those out there that have an open mind !
When installing wainscoting on the side of a stairway you need to know that you are working with basic stairway math. Rise and run will also yield level and plumb angles. For a rise of 7 1/2" and run of 9" you will get a level angle of 50.19 and a plumb cut of 39.81. Now for wainscoting we know one angle is less than 90* and the other is greater than 90* and there are only 2 miter cuts on the whole job. The difficult cut is one that can't be cut on the miter saw without the use of a jig , by using a a 45* block of stock up against the miter fence we now place the molding against it and set the miter gauge to 19.995* an voila you have it.
Plumb angle of 39.81 / 2 = 19.995 plus the 45 degree block. a level cut would be done the same. (Level angle 50.19. / 2 = 25.095 + the 45 degree block)
I have a construction calculator on my iPhone so it is always with me and only takes a few seconds to figure out the angles.
