Materials and Tools:

prefinished 1/4-inch maple
walnut trim
finishing nails
adhesive activator
table saw
chop saw
pneumatic nail gun
level

Steps:

1. Cut down a panel of the prefinished 1/4-inch maple with the table saw.

2. Using the chop saw, cut four strips of walnut trim with ends mitered at a 45-degree angle to fit around the panel. The strips should have a precut rabbet groove, if they don't, run them through a table saw to form the grooves.

3. Frame the strips of walnut trim together to form a rectangle that will surround the panel. Spray adhesive activator along the cut edges and stick them together so they adhere without the use of nails.

6. Spruce up the panels with sconces, art or vases of flowers.
