    think most places that sell plywood sheets ie. mom and pop hardware stores.
    I used real teak/hardwood? veneer ( not photo plastic) on kit counter facing ...bought in local village..about 3-4 mil. inexpensive can't remember price.
    Drive around? and look for the racks...?

    anywhere, all the same

    if you have some cash, you can get any panels made up by a carpenter with good wood

    much nicer

    you can sometimes find old teak panels in the secondhand wood places but the sizes may not be appropriate


    in our wooden house we used bamboo sheeting with hardwood surround, looks good
    I have reported your post

    our village in Trang province..Wang Wisset.....not a lot of help hey?

    Was thinking that if you are considering panels on battens makes a great home for bugs,ants and geckos. Maybe use construction adhesive acting as a sealant too..just saying..
    Agree that woven bamboo sheet looks real nice! Considered that once but prefer a few gallons of paint..lol

    If you go the wood panel route make sure you first use "chondrite" 2 coats at least the seal with polyurthane and do at least 2 coats, or in a couple of years the termites will have eaten you pretty wood panels.

    It has been said many times that termites will eat just about anything except for teak, cement and steel. I would rethink your wall covering.

    Many years ago in Sabah I was in a "bamboo" bar and one of the speakers in the corner wasn't working so a guy got up and gave it a few hard thumps with his hand and a fecking huge (we're talking the size of one's hand big) "shut the feck up" spider came out from the bamboo and stared him down.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
    Those who cannot change their mind, cannot change anything.
