Works for me. I tried the quoted link and it also worked.

I'm not good at all with computer stuff.

@johnesher,

Try the link in post 32.

That link worked. Nice work down there. Love the LED lights in the handrail on the stairs.

How did you secure the replacement flooring? And was that your damage, or theirs?

Trimmed the bottom of the groove off, a little bit of glue to secure it to the existing flooring.

Not my damage, their son dropped a weight on the floor.

Now I need some advice – I've had three people ask for something similar in their house (since posting on FB yesterday).

What would you charge for something like this?
It depends, are you quoting design, installation and painting/finishing?

4 x material costs works out to about 20hrs @ 50.00 hr. A pro could install it in that time. Finishing/ and or painting is additional.

The wainscoting on the stairwell looks more involved. I think a flat rate is the best way to go. It's mostly finish work, paint grade with angled cuts and no coping and not staingrade. So i would add a little to make up for any time discrepancies and snags. Any misalignments you could fill. Also it's repetitive pattern so some templates and jigs could speed up the task?  Just my thought never done wainscoting I like simple.
