    1. Do you want to be able to fish with them, or are they decorative?

    2. Are you painting them,...

    Like it has been mentioned a bandsaw is the ideal tool to thin the 4/4 lumber down to close to 1/4'. This needs to be a bandsaw that is able to accept a riser block kit which will allow you to cut 12' boards. Then you can surface plane them to exact thickness...
