How to Install Judge’s Paneling


Judges paneling is of the modern classic room finishes and it is mostly found in plush office or home leather chairs and libraries. The process of installing judge panel is easy, though it’s expensive; it makes room to have an adaptable look and appearance.

To install judge’s panel, you will need the following materials and tools.

  • Required materials;
  • If desired, manufactured panels,
  • Finished panel stock,
  • panel stock that is raised,
  • 1 inch screw and 2 inch strapping,
  • 6p refined nails,
  • Carpenters glue,
  • Plywood
  1. Once you have gathered the necessary tools and materials, you need to prepare the space where paneling is going to be done. You may need to start with an un-finished and solid interior wall. This might be a wall panel but stronger plywood wall is the most preferred one. Thinner materials such as plywood or strapping are recommended for the wall’s completed breadth that measures past doors’ or window width. Nail fastening to the plywood at the end of paneling pieces, towards the foundation and the top where the panels will be. Split to breadth and panels that are cut raised -make sure you utilize plywood using finished sides to construct panels and rip it to the correct width that you desire. The same should be done for the panel’s portion which is raised. With the use of jointer make a required angle and also create a big X of carpenter’s adhesive on the rear of the raised panel. Nail the 6p refined nails to the plywood.
  1. Once you have done the preparation, the next step is to begin the installation process. Begin the installation at a certain angle of the room by nailing a board to the fastening. In order to uphold the level around the area, make sure that you use pacers along each panel. The floor that you are working on may not be flat as required and therefore a single shim can be used for adjustments as the project progresses. If you are using manufactured panel, fix every board into the groove that is pre-made in the side area of the board and put together it with fasteners. You can continue up to half mark of the room and then go back to the other side. When you have finished, cover the constructed seams with either a finished caulking molding and sanded smooth, though for staining consideration, both of them are not the best way to cover the seems.
