    I'm looking to panel and internal plastered brick wall with wood from pallets and wondering the best way to do it .Should I use glue or batten the wall out and nail it.If I use glue would the wood need to be held in place (don't know how) or will the glue hold it in place.If glue which is the best for this purpose.
    Thanks.

    I'd batten the wall out....using the traditional method of 6mm plastic plugs and screws to suit. After that, the panelling can be fixed to the battens. Depending on the type it could maybe be secretly nailed.
