I decided to go with pre-milled tongue and groove slats from the lumberyard.

They came in 10ft lengths so they were cut to length on the miter saw.

The backs were really rough so I ran them through the planer. The channels were a little small so I thinned the edges of the slats where they fit into the channels with a block plane.

I tried to match the color and grains as closely as possible to each other.
