Old wood siding questions

Hi all, i have a storage building at my parents that has wood siding. I am planning on repairing it and makig it look great. It has a couple spots where sand hornets chewed big holes and built nests in the wall. I was hoping to find some replacement boards but it appears they are not produced in this type any longer, so was thinking of sawing my own. I have a 10” table saw and a band saw. My question is, how is this done? and are there any ideas on how i could replicate this myself?

Its known as SHIPLAP. very common, you should be able to buy it from a woodyard or even a bg box store.
Or you can buy router cutters to make your own.

That is a cove ship lap, you probably won't find it on the shelf anywhere but any lumberyard with a mill can make it for you. Boral TruExterior makes it out of a synthetic polymer/ fly-ash blend, which is more expensive than wood but in this case could be convenient.

We call that Novelty Siding, its pretty common here in the Northeast. I just redid my barn and had to piece in a lot of it, comes in 6 or 8 inch widths. Not available off the shelf everywhere, but I can find it at a few lumberyards nearby. Usually made from #2 pine. Don't know where you are, but I'd think that a decent yard could order some for you. If you order it, you should order some pieces wider then you need. Meaning if you need 6" wide, order some extra 8 " so you can saw it down to fit as its not as forgiving as clapboards when applying, just has a 1/2 inch lap which is not much.

Good luck

Cove ship lap, just what i was looking for. Thanks folks!! I was planning on trying to figure a way to saw them myself, because i’ll only need around 10 board foot. Another reason, i suppose, would to have the knowledge of how to make more to replace future boards (and for bragging rights to say “i made this”) thanks again 🙂
