I am using 1x4, #1, clear white pine as trim for wainscoting in a small room. I
have done this in the past, when #1 meant something.
The problem that I am facing is the one of the ten foot pieces that I must use
has a wonderful set of curves and waves in the flat plane.
I am considering cutting kerfs along the length of back of the plank (3/8" or
1/2" deep) to relieve some of the strength of the board, allowing me to make it
conform more easily to the flatness of wall.
Would several single blade width kerfs, or a single wider (2") channel be a
better option? I do need to leave some edge "meat" to nail through.
