Wavey bottom lap siding

Recommended Posts

I believe that's call Skirl siding.  I thought there was some in the Library but I can't find it.

You can also take a straight on picture of it and convert that to a texture.

We offer 3 variations of siding similar to this in the "Rustic Wood Materials" bonus catalog.

They are labeled as "Waney Edge", but also have search terms for "Live Edge". I hadn't heard the term "Skirl" before, but can add that to the key word search in the future.

 

We don't currently offer a pattern file that represents this in vector views, but it is something we hope to include in the future.

 

I hope these are helpful.

The term "skirt" is used as an example, is when you have a room lets say on top of a deck with vinyl siding and you enclose the sides of the deck using lets say a vertical siding, etc... the sided lower portion of the deck is called a "skirt" ... or another example is you have a sided trailer and you drop the siding down to enclose the under carriage, that lower portion would be called a "skirt".

Greg,

 

The terminology for this type of siding is "SKIRL", not "SKIRT".

It's the siding made when a log is "slabbed" but the edges are not "dressed".

I've always referred to these unedged boards as flitches.

Dan,

 

"Flitches" is the term used basically for the small pieces left after the board are trimmed square.

 

For siding the term is "Skirl"

Joe, my apology, I misread the term... I heard of skirt but not skirl... never came across siding like this in my neck of the woods.
