It will probably rot eventually. I made planters out of 1x2 furring strips (which are much cheaper) that I ripped into 1x1 which I laced together with light chain and painted them with redwood stain. They lasted longer than the plants.
the guys at my Home Depot happily cut as desired. If there aren't too many cuts involved it is free.
I don't see why not. Have you considered those lattice panels made out of lathe? Probably cheaper.
I don't like to sand stuff either. If I were to apply paint to one of these I sure wouldn't sand it. Of course I'm not a big fan of painting, either so if I can get away with it I wouldn't paint it either.
Temporarily secure, tape or hold wood strip to wall. Pencil/Mark top and bottom along entire wood strip,,, (in case it falls). Drill 1/8 inch holes along strip where each anchor will be. Drilling through wood and barely piercing wall so as to mark each anchor spot. Remove wood strip and Drill with proper anchor sized bit into wall. Also, Drill same holes again on the wood strip with proper size bit. . Alternet plan :: make cardboard or paper strip pattern in place of actual wood. Drill 1/8 holes a long strip. Remove pattern and tape onto wood strip surface and finish with previous instructions.
Yes. At least you could have before the virus pandemic.
My hypothesis: The more expensive piece should have better quality grain and fewer blemishes. I purchase the cheaper one if it is straight and clear.
