Beautiful job! Is trim for shadow boxes/picture framing "flipped" so to speak or can trim be used either way? Just curious or is a matter of preference?

The ONLY criticism I can offer is in some places the curves seem segmented. I don't know that I could have changed that and it isn't terribly noticable and may be due to the substrait and I may be too picky...etc etc.

Oh and dude...put something behind that glass edge so it doesn't mark the casing.... and wipe up the dust on the floor for photos.

Anyone have any thoughts on the direction the trim is facing on the shadow boxes?
Likewise for crown mould in general.....is it a matter of preference which direction the profile of the trim faces, in or out?

To me, the trim is backward, - - but that can be a matter of taste.

The only other thing that's a quick (design) catch to my eye is that the rails look somewhat disproportionately narrow as compared to the stiles.

Again, - - that's just my personal opinion.

Still a nice, clean, great-lookin' job, though . . . :thumbsup:

Actually, - - it can get spelled either way, - - although one 't' is generally preferred in America.

I think the trim looks backwards on the panel frames, but without seeing it the other way, I'm not 100% sure.

Looks Good!:thumbsup:

But i do agree with the others, the trim for the panel appears backwards, although that could easily be preferance.

I like everything but the color. I realize that doesn't really have anything to do with the trim. I've just always thought that wainscoting can get lost if painted the exact same color as the wall it's on. I would have went with a slightly different shade than what the wall is. But, as for your part, I think it looks great.
