What is this paneling called?
« on: March 15, 2012, 05:08:42 AM »
On this picture I stole from ebay, what is the name etc. of the paneling behind the counter?  That's what I want to do the walls of my kitchen/dining room in.  I'm sorry it's hard to see.

Typically it would be used for wainscoting, but it's called beadboard paneling.

What we used give us the same look, but we used individual boards that are about 3  9/16" wide, 5/16 thick and come in 8' lengths, instead of the 4x8 sheets of fir paneling. The boards are available at Home Depot and Lowes in pine or cedar.  Jack

That is oak bead board. If it is a solid pc. it will be 4' x 8' x 1/4" sheets. It can also be purchased in strips but they are thicker. Both should be available at any cabinet or home supply.

Thanks guys!  I'm going to get the 4x8 sheets and make the lines horizontal, then go all the way up and over to the cabinets.

Next question:  My bus came with 1/4" plywood cladding over the insulation, nothing over that (the interior wasn't finished).  Would you put the beadboard over the plywood, or in place of it?

Wainscoting is a wall treatment, paneling or something else, below a chair rail.

I was going to use the 4 x 8 sheets, but at my big box store, they are now only pre-finished at $40ea. Calculating that I would waste about 1/3 of each sheet, I decided not to go that route. Some of them are not wood either, but a thin verneer over pressed hardboard.  I am not fond of that stuff as it doesn't mix very well with water!  Knowing that leaks are probable sometime--I avoid anything that will be damaged by first contact with water.

I am going the route Jack did with the individual boards, which I can stain, and hopefully waste fewer of!

My local stores have them in 36" X 48" panels specifically for wainscoting.  I call that look "tongue and groove" because in the old days you made it by cutting tongues and grooves on boards, usually pine, and it was used for the backs of cupboards and all sorts of things.

I would go over the 1/4" for rigidity.

Its easy to make you own beadboard using plywood. In my house kitchen reno I made my own by cutting dados(grooves) in plywood and gluing dowels into the grooves.

I have a short wall section I was thinking on using up some left over tongue and groove 3/4 inch flooring.

You would get the same look. :)
