Wooden Kitchen Ceiling help
Ok I picked up a bunch of OAK T/G floor boards recovered from a demolition site all various widths so I had to rip off the T/G and cut them all down to 3-4'' widths then run them through a planner..... so now im left with a pile of boards and wondering what's the best way to attach them to the ceiling........if your wondering why i ripped of the T/G its because i want a smooth seamless look, no grooves/gaps in between boards... i have a jointer and plan on making these things tight as possible then im gonna finish it off with high gloss poly and crown molding. the crown will be 1.5'' lower then the ceiling and have rope light tucked in there so when turned on it will reflect up onto the ceiling around the permitter. i hope lol (dark wood with black crown)
1- what's the best way to attach them? no screws and wood plugs or wood filler, i want a clean look.....old ceiling has been removed so these boards need to attach right to the beams after i make sure there level an do what i need to if not
2- will the boards separate over time leaving gaps??im gonna leave space around the perimeter and the house is a 100yr brick row home with all new frame work on the first floor (used to have plaster on brick but i removed it all and re studded)
3-Would it help to seal the cut edges at the end of the boards ?? or maybe seal all the cut edges? maybe moisture get in there an cause problems?
