Wainscot This term originally seems to have implied rough planks of oak timber, and subsequently to have been given to wooden paneling, to which they were converted for lining the inner walls of houses and churches. It was very extensively employed during the reigns of Queen Elizabeth and James I, and for a long period afterwards. The names has long ceased to be confined to oak paneling. It is also called seeing-work.
