I'm trying to restore the beadboard walls of an 1880s bathroom and, now that
they've been stripped of their ugly faux tile and 5 layers of paint, need
someone who will fill a couple of gaps the faux tile covered. The first guy
who tried it was a nice young man who got in above his head. A couple of other
carpenters have given me the equivalent of "Huh?" I've called the carpenters'
local union and they're sending someone out for some less complicated jobs, but
can I expect a modern carpenter to do this kind of restoration or do I really
need a cabinetmaker--and if so, how do I find one who has decent skills and
won't try to rob me blind?
