The Classic American® DIY Flat Panel systems celebrate the distinctly American Arts and Crafts, Mission, and Shaker architectrual styles, sold here in an 8-running-foot kit. The Classic American flat panel system embodies the simple and honest design elements found in theses historical styles. Once you place your order and submit a Design Request Form, we'll choose from among our 37 sizes of Flat Panels and corresponding stiles and other frame moldings to create a perfectly designed system for your project. We will confirm the entire design with you by sending a drawing and a bill of material listing all the necessary components for your review and approval before any charge to you card, and before we send an order to our production department. For help with your design, all orders or quote requests should print, complete and submit our Design Request Form.
By using select grade-A sliced veneer or decorative film laminated to a stable engineered wood core, our panel system is more stable than solid wood and less susceptible to shrinkage, splitting, warpage and twisting. Our real wood veneers include oak, maple and cherry, either ready-to-finish, or professionally stained in our factory. If you plan to paint your panels, our factory primed paintable surface is the way to go and is offered at a very economical cost. We'll paint it, if you like, before it is shipped for a nominal charge. For an upcharge, we will even match a stain color if you send us a stain sample.
A variety of panel sizes fit with precision-machined rails and stiles to create a fully integrated assembly system that reduces installation time and costs. Overall finished heights using these kits range from 32" to 44" wainscoting. Custom panel widths and heights may also be ordered, up to full wall height and flat panel systems for stairways and landings is also available!

We have done two projects using New England Classic material; couldn't be more pleased with the initial design help the staff provided and the look of the finished installation.
As a side note, I have never seen such protective packaging of a product. Measure carefully and NEC will provide you with an accurate blueprint for you to work from.
