Care Is Advised In Installation of Pine Wall Panels Once Installed the upkeep is inpto. but lastingly attractive and durable paneled pine walls are the result of careful construction, says Practical Builder, Chicago 3. From the selection of wood to Its final finish, keep in mind these Important suggestions and your walls will require minimum upkeep anl repairs. Select carefully dried woods of one silk-lex and avoid boards with separated knots that may drofi out later. Keep boards dry and clean before actual work begins, removing smudges with cleaning fluid. If paneling Is to be installed over concrete or masonry walls, protect It from condensation and moisture penetration by completely watcr- proffiiiK walls and coating the hack of paneling with a good primer paint or sealer. New plaster walls should be thoroughly dried before panels are added. Before nailing, sand paneling in direction of grain by hand or by a bell sander which-gives an even, smooth, surface. Stain or apply first coat of finish to panels after sanding and before they are errect- ed, giving extra protection against soiling and to assure uniform application on all edges. Watch the; grain direction and coloring when nailing boards to rigid framing so that the finished wall will not be spotty with dark panels close to very light ones. Blind nail wherever possible especially at eye level, and fill holes with pure yellow beeswax, tinted non-shrinking crack filler or matching plasjlc wood. ^ A variety of stains for knotty | pine can achieve almost any eflect i desired. Acid, water and alchol, j oil, thinned undercoat paints, tint- j ] ed lacquers, resins, varnish, pig-1 i mented wax, raw or burnt sienna j I can be sprayed, brushed or ragged ; onto the surface. Waxing, clear; lacquering or varnish alter stain- '• iiig protects the colors, give the lustre so well liked on this type of wall. For a satin-like glow, buff last coat of hard varnish with fine steel wool. The emu U the national bird at Australia. Read Courier Newa Want Adj. Telephone 2 For New Homes!
