We are decorating our bedroom to look like a cabin. We have 8" pine boards that have been stained. We are getting close to chinking our boards. The space between each board averages about 1.5 inches. I am wanting the chinking material to be as cheap as possible. What would you recommend? Also, will we need to put anything like chicken wire in between the boards to keep the chink from cracking? Thank you.


No chicken wire. Maybe a strip of masking tape not quite as wide as the gap behind the chink. Nothing cheap in this case. Save your self a whole lot of extra work down the road and use good latex chinking from the start. Call Dave at 800-564-2987 for materials.
