Stonewalls made of oak

At work they made profiles for a customer in solid american oak and
the leftovers were garbage for some but not for me. :)
I looked at the U-shape and measured 25mm inside the gap and this
will fit perfectly for most of my figures.
The only figures that will not fit inside are my sotr-figures with
a base measuring 32mm i diameter.
The front and the back of my oak-profiles will be coated with 
cutouts that will look like stone-work when painted. I have not decided
yet if I will use polystyrene or cardboard but the most vivid choice
would be polystyrene. 
The U-profile measure 35mm in height and 45mm in depth and the
long pieces are 130mm in length.
I have not decided if I will add a base to make the profiles look more
wall-like but I think otherwise they will not look realistic.
I will probably add a base in soft MDF in a thickness of 22 or 30mm
and then the total height of the stone wall will measure 57 or 65mm.
I have also made a cut in some of the profiles (55 dgr) to make the
"stone-walls" more versatile. Finally I will make end-sections and
profiles with cutouts to symbolize rear entrances to the walls.

Here are also some pictures below to show how
I am going to make the stonework out of carved
ploystyrene.The pieces will be glued onto the
wooden profiles using pva.

  4. Looks interesting. But how you will do the structure and texture of stones?

    1. Thankyou very much Peter.I have published an update to show how I will proceed.The stones will be cutouts from polystyrene and glued using pva onto the wooden sides.After glued they will get a dash of sand to get a more rough look.Finally some painting and wash(highlight).
