    You occasionally see a horizontal camera, but vertical is by far most common. Any horizontal panels have been in older houses. I can't think of a good reason to put it horizontal.

    I think Bill is onto something. A course weave fabric of the desired color could be glued to the face of the cork. You'd never have to work about bits of chipped out cork spoiling the look in time.
