Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MixerUpper Perfect to add sophistication to our dining room
We used this wood for shadow box moulding trim in our new house. It's an old house in a historic district, so we wanted to stay true to the character and style of the home. I researched trim styles and this one was perfect - not too ornate or fussy, but with some visual interest as well as being nice and thin. The thinness was big for us because the formal dining room wasn't particularly large so we didn't want the trim to dominate but more recess visually.
The wood was easy to work with but worth noting: my husband wound up having to cut all 176 (!) 45-degree cuts on a miter saw by hand - it was too thin to control on an electric miter saw. There were no imperfections in the wood that required fixing once we'd installed. One thing to note: one of the pieces we bought was a bit thicker than the rest, so any corners where that piece met a thinner piece, we had to do some doctoring at the joint. If you're buying multiples for this type of project, look to make sure they're consistent thickness.
It was applied to plaster no problem with a brad nail gun, followed by caulking any seams with gaps from the wall, and the entire room was painted with primer/2 coats of paint shortly thereafter. It looks wonderful, we are really pleased. Unfortunately, our painter did crack one of the pieces of wood in the process - we weren't there when it happened, but we assume he knocked into it hard with a tool. So be careful as it's not the sturdiest (not surprising at only 5/16").

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HomeUpdater A few arrived warped
Had them shipped to home since 8' boards would not fit in my compact SUV. I purchased 16 to start updating my flat interior doors. Out of the 16 three were warped. You can work around the warped boards if you need some shorter pieces but you need to pay attention before you start cutting. Price seems pretty inflated when one considers the amount of material you get.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gonshu inexpensive update
I like my house, but it was built in 1971 and the doors are just flat hollow core. I bought this moulding and with my trusty miter saw transformed the look of my doors for an easy on the wallet price.
