wood wall
« on: February 24, 2021, 03:28:16 PM »
thought I would get some input.  my wife has consulted Pinterest and getting ideas with store bought rustic wood products.  (like cheese product on the label of yellow cheese food slices).  can you all show pics of what you have done.  especially from you own mill.  how did you attach.  some design variation.  I have done rustic and even a herringbone pattern on steps.  I hate to glue it to sheet rock and have to tear it out maybe someday.  rough sawn vs planed.  I think the later will show grain better and be easier to clean.  I have seen varying width and thickness, and length, and species all on the same wall,  how do you frame it as in edges and borders with other walls.  we have an area with moisture damage from a frost free hydrant that leaks if you put a hose with a sprayer left on.  first is to pull off the sheetrock and fix that.  but it will be easier to go over the new sheet rock, as we have a knockdown textured wall.  lets see what you got!

Hello doc, if I understand it you are interested in plank walls. No picture but I once covered my wall with poplar planks I milled. 32mm thick spline jointed. The planks though were not with parallel edges but tapered more or less as the tree had grown. Don't get me wrong, this was no crazy organic situation, the edges were straight just wider at the bottom (slightly enough that it is clear for anyone with eyes to see) than top, placed up in an alternating way. Then painted. Maybe it's boring for you but kind of a novelty nowadays. Not before though. It is a practice from the Middle Ages used as a means of hauling the most out of a tree when materials were much more expensive, relatively.

Here's a ceiling I did. All square edge sugar maple planed down and just butted together. It was for a friend that was trying to flip a house, he wanted rustic and cheap. All just nailed with a brad nailer. I sprayed it all in place.

I lined the inside of my shop with about a dozen different hardwoods. They were planed, square edge, and face screwed. No finish but if it was in the house I would have put something on them. Looks great. Moisture content was around 16% on most of them when they went up so some substantial gaps have opened up this winter (was put up last winter) but with the random nature of the wall (width, length, species) I don't really notice unless I pay attention. Knowing they were going to shrink I tried not to put wide pieces (10-12") in adjoining rows.

I would say planing would almost be a necessity in the house.









A couple months ago I put a wood wall in my house after removing some old paneling. I used knotty v-groove siding from the lumberyard and painted it white. It was a much easier process than the walls in the shop but not as pretty or unique either. I'm not a big fan of knotty pine and have a lot of nice wood in the house (floors, trim, bookshelves, etc) and felt if left natural the knotty pine wall would have looked busy and pathetic in comparison. Painting it gives a clean look but the texture still says wood.

And here I was thinking an outdoor wall, as a wind break in winter, but deter late frost in spring and early frost in fall, near my grapes. :snowball:  Southwesterly exposure on wall.

My entire basement is panels from my EWP, made into reverse board and batten applied to concrete block foundation walls. A local KD/millwork company made it from tulip poplar and ran mine for me in with their own-until they burned down. We have another local company that still makes and sells the same. I have no idea why they don't also use EWP, just poplar. Easier to apply the batten boards than T&G. 
In KS I'd go with maple, ash, or what would cottonwood look like on a wall?

the wife wants rustic, and a variety of color/species.  so in the same boat as @Nebraska but looking at tile like application vs long boards.  have told her about varying thickness and or width to make it interesting.  If there is not a pic on Pinterest, than it cannot be done (or at least conceptualized).  our flooring is foe vinyl rustic wood.  so do not want it to almost mimic and miss.  I may try to get a small dimension tongue and grove bit, but ship lap would be easier.  I do not want to glue and ruin sheetrock, if it comes down in 10 years.  kinda of why we do not do wall paper.  We have done boarders.

cottonwood is very pretty, under appreciated.  thanks for all the pics.  it is not pinterest, but should help my wife see some great ideas.

I think Elm would be pretty, Honey Locust, Green Ash and Cottonwood  in the mix would have  interesting  colors. All trees you can get a hold of locally Maybe Mulberry/Hedge thrown in.  You've got that fancy machine that makes those boards  ;), and it won't look like the pseudo barn wood box store stuff.  My wife is talking a wall in the house as well.

I dunno, he said he's trying to make it look like vinyl  ??? Maybe a rubbertree?

We had osb up on the ceiling as backing for the T&G so I could run a pattern. I wanted to try intarsia of the Bud horses but got shot down  :D

You could do like Jeff did on the ceiling under the porch of his little cabin in his backyard. All the blocks came from different forum members.

The WOC 50 shades of brown thread had some fine looking walls that may give your  wife ideas of using different  shades of finishes for a random pattern that looks awesome.
