The Family Handyman September 2011 issue

And if for you that means home theater, a gym and a pool table, even better!

      In this issue on page 24, you show Brian Gartrell's man cave where he installed galvanized steel wainscot.  In the article it mentions he had it precut.  Can you tell me what dimensions it was cut to and why?  Thank you.
