Knotty Pine Reversible "V" Groove Planks
Everyone remembers a relaxing summer vacation to a cottage on a lake or winter ski lodge where the natural beauty of Knotty Pine used on the wall took you to another time and place. There is something to be said about the rustic, natural look that only Knotty Pine can provide you, it creates its own mood especially as it mellows and changes color with age.<
Elite Trimworks has found an easy way for you to incorporate the natural beauty of Knotty Pine into your home decor. By using our Knotty Pine Beadboard planks, you can easily give any wall or ceiling that unmistakable charm. Our Pine planks come unfinished and ready to accept any type of stain or varnish. Depending on the finish treatment you can get a variety of looks from the Knotty Pine, it can brighten a room (whitewash) bring nature indoors (unfinished or clear coat varnish) or create a sense of great age (deep, saturated colors).
Our Reversible "V" Grove Knotty Pine Planks are easy to order and install. Each plank has a Tongue and Groove edge (as shown in cross-section) which allows each plank to lock into the next. The ends are cut square from the mill, with a "Tongue and Grove" router set, you can machine your own tongue to end match for long runs just like hardwood flooring. Our knotty pine planks are 3/4" thick by 5 1/2" wide, commonly referred to as 1 x 6's and typically 8 feet long. They are available up to 16 ft long and sold in bundles of 304 or 152 pieces. Made from #1 and #2 grade knotty pine with the "V" grove is either 5 1/8" apart or 2 9/16" as shown. These planks are perfect for ceilings, walls and closets. For walls in cottages that are un-heated over the winter, these planks are preferred over drywall since they much easier to install and won't crack in the winter. To calculate material required, you need 2.4 running feet of 1x6 planks to cover 1 square foot. Therefore, take the total area you want to cover, add 10% then multiply by 2.4 and divide by the length of the plank to calculate numbers of planks. For example, if you need to do a wall 8ft x 20 this would be the formula: 8 x 20 = 160 + 10% = 176 sq ft x 2.4 = 422 liner feet divided by 8 ft lengths = 53 planks 8 ft long
