Wooden Wall Panels
The beauty of wood, a natural resource, encompasses all the warmth and charm that can go far beyond a rustic look. Wood wall paneling comes in many species, styles and can be finished in a variety of ways, natural or painted. The application to the walls can also be achieved by a number of methods, tongue and groove, shipshape board and batten and reverse board and batten. Wood paneling can also strengthen the structure subject to high winds and storms.Wood wall paneling is the earliest of all forms for finishing a room. The great castles of Europe adorned the walls of the finer rooms with wood, not only for keeping the air drafts out but for the display of wealth. Early boards were all hand cut in a pit saw fashion. One person would be on top the log and the Pittman would literally be in a pit at the other end of a long crosscut saw. Today with the modern equipment an entire log can be used for wood wall paneling in a matter of minutes.
