    Kitchen shiplap style panels going up

    Finally got started on our kitchen shiplap style panels today. I'm using 1/4" subflooring panels. Didn't have a real good way to cut the panels but I ended up clamping a 2x4 underneath for support and then a straight board on top to guide my jig saw. Cuts turned out ok but this material is simply not made for this purpose and was a challenge to end up with real smooth edges. Took a few measurements and then got busy nailing the panels to the walls today with my brand new brad nail gun and brand new air compressor.
    I think the end result will be what my wife is looking for but if I were to do it all over again....I would use a better material than this subflooring. It's ok and will get the results we're looking for but it will require a bit more work to make it that way.
    I have a few more to put of these walls tomorrow then I will also be doing the space above the kitchen cabinets as well. The panels will then be painted.

    I'll need to hide this post from my wife Tom. She's gotten the idea to do this up the wall going to our downstairs, about 18' tall. Looks good though.
