Replaced plain flat sheetrock wall, which extends from Dining Room through the Living Room. Making it into a Unique One Of A kind Raised Panel Wall.
Wall was made from 174 Small Old Pine Cabinet Doors, Plus 138 feet of 5/4 " pine boards & 236 feet of lattice strips.
Each pine door was originally 8.25" x 10.25". Used my Ryobi Table Saw to square off each door making them 8" x 10".
Then - Glued 6 doors together to create a panel measuring 24" x 20".. Used Ryobi wood clamps to hold the doors together as the glue dried.
After that – fastened each panel to the wall with construction adhesive & used my Ryobi Drill to countersink 4 screws through each panel holding it in place against the existing wall while the adhesive cured.
Used my Ryobi Table Saw & Miter Saw to rip & cut the 5/4" pine boards to make precise tight fitting encasement boarders surrounding the panels.
Each pine board was fastened to the wall with construction adhesive & again used my Ryobi Drill to countersink screws through pine board holding them in place while the adhesive cured.
Used my Ryobi Miter Saw to cut lattice strips to make precise tight fitting inner encasements on each panel where the edge of the pine doors butted up against the pine boards.
Then filled in all the counter sunk screws with wood filler.. Sanded the wall completely & Applied 2 coats of primer & 3 coats of eggshell finish paint.
The project took 9 days to complete.
In addition to the carpentry work... I also relocated 4 electrical boxes & one light switch, so they would be positioned properly and aligned in the center of some of the door panels.
Ryobi tools made things go very smoothly.
