Custom Woodworking in Santa Clarita

Our client is building a custom home and is installing wainscoting throughout. We were commissioned to create custom wainscot panels to wrap some corner columns within the home. Wainscoting adds a striking touch to any home.

Below is an image of one of the corners which is to be wrapped with Knotty Alder panels.

Because of the embellishments which were to be carved and routed into these wainscot panels, I chose glue joints which would provide more surface area for glue than the usual butt/biscuit joint. These joints also eliminate the possibility of exposed biscuits after carving and routing.

This glue joint profile was used to create the panels.

This lock miter joint profile was used to create the corners which were to receive a routed cove detail.

Each panel (various sizes) was created to our client’s dimensions.

In keeping with his mountain & wildlife theme, our client chose to embellish each panel with this deer relief.
