Wall Paneling, New Yankee Workshop DVD

See how easy it can be to create rich, three-dimensional paneled walls!  Man… Imagine your own study, masculine greens & reds, kicked back in front of your fireplace…  Hmmm…  To begin, Norm shows some wonderful examples of wall paneling techniques in a home restored several years ago by This Old House. At the simplest, he shows how molding can be applied to a plain wall to create a paneled effect. Then he brings us into to the Workshop to show classic bead board paneling, raised panel systems and, finally, rich mahogany paneling using veneered plywood and solid custom moldings. Includes measured shop drawings.

Lathe projects do not have to be complicated, so learn to turn pens.  This is a true story… Our friends restored an early 19th century home and we secretly absconded an original piece of 200-year-old floorboard.
