Topic tags/keywords: question

Question; Is there a difference in the basic bead board paneling that is typically sold at Home depot, vs, more up scale building supply stores? The 4’x8’x 3/16” panels sold at HD seem to need a lot of sanding, minor repair, etc., before you can begin to finish. Not looking for specific wood types, basic pine is fine ( they will be color stained and finished w/ poly). Maybe it all comes from the same manufacturer, but, I would not mind paying a bit more if it meant they were in a condition more ready to be finished. Thanks, to the “lumberjocks”!!!

I’m considering the same route. It’s a shame no one ever replied…

What did you end up doing?

We were in the molding manufacturing business for a considerable number of years but we didn’t make the panels. We made it out of solid wood. We probably had at least 10 different sets of knives for bead board and made it out of any wood and thickness you wanted. We had a stockroom where we kept hundreds of patterns and species of molding in stock and always had a good selection of bead board moldings. There are a number of molding companies out there, especially if you’re within 50 miles of a fair size city. It pays to find a molding company that makes their own knives and keeps a selection of moldings on hand. We would sell 1 stick of molding to anybody that just walked in off the street.
