This isn’t much of a wood working project but I like it . When I built this porch 5 Years ago I used plywood paneling to do these walls. After the 1st. winter it warpped and pulled away from the walls. This paneling is made from resawn 2×4’S and plained down to 3/8 inch thick. Then I milled the beads in the faces of each one. After sanding each one I painted them both front and back. When I installed them I caulked at the top and the bottom of each one so water could not get behind them. I bought all the supplies from Home Depot’s cull bin cost me about $10 bucks Thanks for looking…............................Schloemoe

You coulda entered Stumpy’s twobafour contest!

I built 2 boxes for 3×5 cards out of one 2×4 where part of my resawing was at ~3/8” strips that gave me 4 strips.
... you can see them in my Projects…
... I know your resawing FEELING!

Great job in making your panel!!
