Default Opinion needed

My wife asked me to build a faux pallet wood wall for my MILís 60th Bday party, to cover my guitar wall. 8íx8í so Iím doing it in two sections. Question is do I install it horizontal or vertical? Hereís a pic of horizontal, which I plan to add a spine in the center for strength and then support for the legs. Pallet wood to be added after itís up.

I told her Iíd build it quicker than Trump!

Run the panels vertical so you arent trying to stack one another putting together.. make you life easier

You asked for opinions so here is mine.

I assume by guitar wall you have a collection of guitars hanging on the wall.

I would tell her that I am proud on my collection that has taken me years to collect and there is no way I am covering them up. I have them hanging on the wall to show off my collection so deal with it.

Is it a temporary wall? If you have the faux pallet boards horizontally then itíll be easier to disassemble if the plywood is horizontal. If you run the plywood vertically then youíll have to have a vertical seam in the middle (might look odd) or else take off all the pallet boards to disassemble.

By guitar wall I mean my electric, bass, and acoustic. If I had a ďcollectionĒ Iíd be more proud lol.

Yes I will be removing the pallet boards to use in the house at a later date. I figured this would be a good trial run before putting on an actual wall.

Thanks for the opinions guys, luckily I have a great MIL or I wouldnít be doing this

For strength then plywood vertical and pallet boards horizontal, for movability then just the opposite with a three 2x4's screwed to the back for strength.

I wound up doing the 4x8s horizontal and moving them in separately. Screwed them together face down and added a spine in the back. Stoodíer up and wife is now happy. Happy wife, happy life!

Your work looks good. Hard to imagine that it looks better than the wall behind it, though. Lol. Couldnít have just moved the guitars or something?

In any case, nice! I could see a panel like that making a great art wall or something down the road!

Things are almost back to normal. My wife liked it so much Iím putting the pallet wood I salvaged on a wall in the house. Going above her desk, same room different wall. Iím just happy to see my guitars again. Just need to find time to play them.
