    Shiplap in kitchen?

    I blame all those diy tv shows. My wife would like me to put up shiplap siding as an accent wall in our kitchen. Has anyone here used shiplap siding or have any tips for using it? I've read that several different materials can be used. Actual shiplap planks or even plain thin plywood.

    I wouldn't use it in a kitchen. Over time, cooking grease, etc., will collect in the gaps, and be very hard to remove. Unless you're an absolute 'clean freak' fanatic, you'll never keep it totally clean.

    I built a shiplap/clinker hulled boat from a kit back in the day. It consisted of plywood planks, overlapped an inch or so and fastened together with glue and bolts. Didn't look anything like what is being sold on amazon as shiplap.

    Which look is she going for?

    Ted I think what you did was Lapstrake construction.

    Your URL is indeed ship lap but very expensive at $25 for an 8' board.

    I used some old weathered cedar fence boards to make my shop clock. I used the table saw to make them into a type of ship lap both edges were the same width.

    I'm sure "real" shiplap and what is used as a decretive accent today is different. That's the basis of my posting. Wondering if anyone has done this recently and what material they used

    My bad. You are exactly right, although shiplap was sometimes used in conjunction with lapstrake hulls it was not used often.
