Wood Paneling: Knotty Ideas

Reviewed by:

Ideal for horizontal-plank wainscoting or wall paneling, these 4", 5", 6" and 8" planks are end-matched (tongue and grooved on all four sides). With the interlocking tongue and groove, there's no need for the plank to end on a wall stud.

Choose from red pine or northern white cedar. Both are kiln-dried at 180 degrees to a moisture content of 6 - 8%, which the manufacturer states, will minimize "pitch bleeding."
