I happened to get a bunch of 2”X 10”, some of them where 24’ long. These came from an old hotel that was raised. These boards were planed on one side, & rough on the other.
I hung onto them for awhile deciding what to use them for, until I got the bright idea of making a suspended grid ceiling in our basement.
First I hung an 8” wide perimeter board, with notches at the proper spacing for the tiles. Then ripped the grid pieces to 2 3/4” wide.
I did this about 25, or 30 years ago, & I noticed the latest issue of Wood magazine has a similar project.
I beat them by about 30 years. LOL
