    Default What timber do I use for weatherboard stop end batten?

    Cladding my garden shed in weatherboard and my DIY guide talks about the stop end batten that you butt the weatherboards up against at a right angle. What type of timber is usually used and what dimensions?

    Thanks. Any reason for the odd LxW on the outside? Why not an even square, would it look odd or something?

    The wider external one is to allow you to nail it to a corner stud.

    If you draw it it will make sense.

    If you hop onto the hardies/ other cement type sites and check the dimensions of the end battens they use. You will be able to see pictures of the finished product and check on the dimensions.

    depends on what weatherboard you are using.. if its hardwood or pine then the thickness when they are overlayed is at least 35mm.. I use 75 x 38 hardwood.

    The standard size for corner battens is 75 X 38 hardwood. They are fixed by extending the long side about 38mm past the corner stud. then the weatherboards are butted into it on both walls.
