I used 1x12 rough cut lumber on the intreior walls of my man cave. The boards are spaced 1 1/2 " apart. Can I use drywall mud for chinking? I used backer board as my foundation, underneath the lumber. Thanks, Joey


No, drywall mud will dry out and crack away from the boards. I would recommend true chinking. Call 800-564-2987 to buy or go to
