After receiving several quotes for painting my kitchen (and after the
heart medication), I will be painting things myself. In my kitchen,
I have a goodly amount of wainscot... Spraying is out of the
question. I was thinking a reasonably deep nap roller?
I agree - use a brush. A roller will give you an 'orange peal' effect like
they do on a wall. That's probably not what you're looking for. Now one
trick I used when I painted mine was to use the roller to get the paint on
the surface to start with, and then go back over it immediately with a
nearly dry bush to get rid of the orange peal look.

All comments are valid. One more though is that kitchens tend to have
grease on all surfaces. This may not be too much of a problem if you
apply an oil based paint (my choice) but if you use a latex wash the
woodwork first with a degreaser. I'd use real TSP. If you don't the
paint will lift in the most visible location.
