    Question Cracks in wood walls. Need good filler material.

    When I built my house I used white pine (T&G) throughout the living space. Then I decided to use rough cut 1x12's (also white pine) in the basement, just for a change. My problem is that after I have hung the wood and it has dried out, I have fairly large gaps between the boards. I ran them horizontally so I don't know about running a strip like you would when you board&batton. You can see the studs and insulation through the cracks and I am a little bit particular and it is driving me crazy. I need something to fill the gaps(some as big as 1/2").I need something maybe dark brown. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Anything you use will only break loose as the wood moves between seasons. Run strips or remove and shiplap with a router.

    Right, right. What do they use on cabins? Chinking, what is chinking, and would that work?
