Ikea have some blinds that are cheap and made of Lime, if the lats are are cut up on a band saw they make very good planks, they will twist and bend at the same time making planking a hull easy.

If the varnish is sanded off they will take a wood stain, ideal for deck planking.

Hi Alan

is this current? do you have a product name or size/price? There is an Ikea about 12 miles from me at Warrington.

I got mine from Warrington, the product name is Lindmon, there are a few types so you need to make sure you get the ones that are made of Lime, I got the ones that are about 4ft wide as they only have the two slots in for the cords, you can get longer planks from these, the wider ones have three slots in them. Sorry cant remember the price.
