wainscoting help for a new guy
hey everyone. im new to wood working and all things related. my wife and i bought a house a few years ago and have been fixing it up little buy little. so far we have installed a floating wood floor, redid all the baseboards and installed crown moulding in some of the rooms.
we are getting some dark carpet installed next week and thought doing one of the bedroom walls in wainscoting would contrast nicely. it seems pretty straight forward but one part of the design is throwing me off and i cant quite figure it out.
from what ive read, i could use quarter inch play or flat paneling for the base, and place the stiles and rails over the top to give it the dimension and look i want. i would then cap it off with a ledge/chair rail. but the part i cant figure out is how to integrate it into the window molding. since everything else would sit on top of the ply, where it butts up to the window molding would be uneven. am i over thinking things???
here is what i was thinking, and a similar look im going for.
