Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pat Ceiling Planking
I had some ice dam damage from a couple years ago and ended up demoing the ceiling in a first floor bathroom as a result. I hung new greenboard and sloppily taped it myself and so it stayed until last week.
I had been thinking about how to finish off the space with a little character and not much investment and stumbled upon this product. I viewed it as a low risk-high reward opportunity and installed the planking over the greenboard with construction adhesive and brad nailed the tongues into the ceiling joists. All told I completed the ceiling (60ish sf) in less than 8 hours including staining and poly.
The planking received the stain well and was thin enough that for some of the notching, I was actually able to score and snap. Some of the planking had some rough spots but I was able to bury most of those in the spoil when I cut the planks to length.
Time will tell how it holds up in the high humidity bathroom environment but it seems to be doing fine so far.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by webkennection Beware - 30% bad - Company hides defective board in middle
Pros: This is a nice looking product for covering walls. Real wood covering for sunroom at a fraction of the cost of using tongue and groove. Price is good if it actually did cover 14 sq ft.
Cons: Every pack I bought had bad boards full of holes in the middle boards that are hidden from view. There are six planks in each package. The company puts 4 nice looking planks on the outside viewable by the customer. On the inside, you get the scraps that are full of holes. So far I have opened 4 packs and all 4 have defective or scrap boards in the middle. These are full of holes where the knots used to be and came out during manufacturing. What you have is two boards with about 10 holes in them - the full length of the board so you can't even use it to cut end pieces.
Very disappointed that a product made in the USA would purposely put defective products in a package.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaPaJ Installed as ceiling
Easy to install and looks great. I used these on my master BR ceiling. Find your joists and mark with chalk line. Then use a nail gun using 2" 18 gage brads. Some waste with large knot holes or rough cut boards, but not bad. About 6 boards out of 72. Because the tongue and groove is so small, it can be tricky putting the next board into the groove where you have previous joining boards. If you slide them through the joint they go together easier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wayne awsome apperance and smell
I used this in 3 different rooms of my house. If you want to talk about gorgeous, this is it! Sure your going to get some pieces that are less than perfect, but they can be used for short cuts or filler. I don't see why some people don't like it. Patience and persistence is all worth it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stacey Nice bookcase backing
I replaced a small stair railing with a bookcase and was looking for a bookcase backing that would look nice from both sides. This was beautiful, affordable, and pretty easy to work with. Some of the boards didn't come together as nice as others, but I didn't end up with any gaps either. I did take a little time picking a nice looking pack of wood.
