The old barn wood has 2 usable faces. Typically its just one face.
Being 1” thick, resawing would yield double the surface area.
The boards would be first surfaced on one edge and then ripped on the SawStop PCS table saw. Next a trip through the 14” Rikon bandsaw and then through the Dewalt 735 planer to achieve a uniform thickness of about 3/8” (to be determined).

The wood will be used to completely cover a 24’x9’ wall and a portion (16×9) of an adjoining wall in the attached 2 car garage currently undergoing a remodel of sorts. The garage will become a shared space of a more formal woodworking shop, and for parking of my wife’s car. I cook competition BBQ, so there is a fridge, freezer and big sink in this same space as well. The remaining walls will be either painted with a finish coat or covered with corrugated metal panels. The garage walls and 18’ overhead door are insulated.

Link to the floor plan.

Phase 1 of the project is complete being the electrical upgrade going from 1 circuit to 6 new 120V circuits and three 220v circuits. This involved cutting out sheet rock, drilling through studs, pulling wires from the panel box through the crawl space, installing of outlet boxes, adding 4 locations for goose-neck wall mounted lights, space to mount a TV, and irrigation controller. The sheet rock was repaired, and last weekend the walls and ceiling were all sprayed with primed and the ceiling again sprayed with the finish coat. Floor and the brick foundation walls were pressure washed.

Phase 2 is painting the other walls, installing 2 overhead storage racks above the garage door, hang the dust filter system, install overhead compressed air reel, and install the mini-split HVAC. More or less this phase is to decluter the space.

Phase 3 is to install prep and install the barnwood and corrugated metal.

Phase 4 is construction of 30 feet of counter tops with miter saw station, start building the rolling workbench/assembly tables doubling as the in-feed and out feed tables. The table saw, and the assembly tables will be stored under the counter tops when the floor space is needed for other functions.
