Anything that doesn't fit in the other boards.

Question for those that have put some up. Did you allow the lumber to dry anymore after purchasing or just start putting it up?

not dry more, per se. but you do want to let it acclimate to its environment for 48 to 72 hours before install
(longer the better)

Some websites talk about finishing both sides of the boards, is that necessary?

no, don't seal the backside, you would risk trapping moisture under the finish

I just put it on the porch ceilings of our new house. I use a t nailer. It's a duo fast finish nailer . I believe they are 16 gauge. We stained and sealed it. On the finished side only

Be sure it is dry. I put some up that we thought was dry and it shrunk some more. Those gaps can really open up and the spaces between the ends of the boards can expand. Also be prepared to have to horse some of the curved boards into place. Not that hard with the tongue and groove but something you will have to do.

How can a person be sure that it is dry enough?

What is the best way to cut it to have good joints? Miter saw?

One strip of liquid nails on the backside and use a finish nailer and put one in each stud on an angle on the tounge side so they are concealed. $.02
