Shiplap & Nickel Gap Wood

From fancy farmhouse to cottage cute, order your heart’s desire today!

If you crave the rustic look with a modern twist, we’ve got just what you’re looking for in shiplap or nickel gap wood with either a smooth or rough-sawn finish.

Shiplap vs. Nickel Gap

What’s the difference? Both types of wood have a rustic modern look with small gaps between the boards, but one has a more “finished” look (nickel gap) and the other is a bit more rustic (shiplap).

Nickel Gap

Nickel gap wood has a more “polished” look with a consistent width in the gap (about the thickness of a nickel), and a smooth finish which you can ask us to pre-finish with any minwax stain — or simply order our white washed or unfinished nickel gap. There is a tongue and groove style allowing you to “hide” the nails in the groove and giving a smooth look overall.


Shiplap wood has a space between boards too, but it must be face nailed, giving it a more rustic (barn like) look. See our face nailed example above. You may order your shiplap with a rough sawn finish — which is very rugged, (see our rough sawn shiplap sample) or a smooth finish and in white wash or stone grey.

Minwax Colors

Ask us to apply any of these Minwax colors to smooth boards. Contact us to create a custom color match. Finishing includes one coat of clear coat to seal the finish and allow for easier cleaning.
