OK....went back and looked at your pics.Here's one treatment that has been a real money maker for us over the last four decades or so,haha.But you have to give credtit to WW'ing talk....you won't get this on any other forum.
Because we're talkin "wainscoat",haha......you're going to be looking for ways to "kill" not only your cap rail,but the base,outside of any style/rail system that holds any paneling right?By kill,I mean a way to have a "home" for the pcs to die into to.
One way...and a rather elegant solution,so it must be consider'd into final design criteria....is:You can very efficiently make a back band moulding that "clips" on outside of existing casing.With a TS and router table you can practically double the "depth" of the casing right where your wainscoat's(hah) cap rail/chair rail needs it the most.
No,you don't have to do the whole house.....are you paneling the whole house?No...don't...reserve it for "special rms".Just like the backband.Good luck,sounds like a fun project.
Edit to add:On the BB(backband),one VERY appropriate mould profile is a "Roman OG"....which is a cyma curve with a fillet or two.In anycase,the profile is twds your exist casing....the outside corner of the BB is simply a sq right angle back to wall.It "clips" on because theres a very shallow(in one direction) rabblt.This not only "locates" your depth,but also turns your "crack" line at a right angle to viewer(another WWT trick here).Don't even mess with a dado head on TS.....your std blade will make this shallow rabbit.I wouldn't even bother cleaning it up on router table......it's a one shot,cut,get it right.
Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
