Extremely flimsy, more like a thick veneer than a plank, makes it very difficult to fit planks together and tongues and grooves blow out with even the slightest pressure. Agree with previous reviewers, better to slice off half the groove and install like shiplap. Clearly there is no quality control wherever this stuff is milled and packaged, is full of holes, broken tongues/grooves, under-width planks, out of six per package usually two were rejects. Warps as soon as you unwrap it, watched one piece go banana-shaped in just seconds. Finally gave up, returning unused, had to start job over. Am kind of surprised that HD would think this stuff is worth carrying.
Cons: Difficult to Install, low quality

Review 2 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
Good quality product for excellent price. You just need to look carefully throw the packs when you buy them. Some of them are really damaged during storage job. Don't take them, otherwise you need to return back. Good looking packs in the shop shall give you a pleasure to work .

Review 3 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
Most of the panels are unusable due to holes along the tongue, groove or middle of the panel. Panels cup as soon as they are removed from package. Pieces are almost impossible to join. Tried installing for a customer but gave up after 1/2 hour of trying to join planks together. tongues or grooves would crack. wound up using another product. Had to absorb the cost of the panels.
Cons: Difficult to Install, most panels unusable, hard to join together, panels cup

Review 4 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
More than half of the product in each 6-pack was damaged or unusable. Most common was the grove side damaged or broken, warped and very hard to line up the tongue into the grove. If your going to install this on a wall longer than 10ft, plan to take a lot of pieces back to the store or plan to cut off the back side of the grove and install like shiplap. Product is nice looking once installed but the installation process is incredibly time consuming.
Pros: Stylish, Light Weight
Cons: Difficult to Install

Review 5 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
The cedar planks were very easy to install. They kept their shape and V notch was not broken; as the pine planks I have also installed. The cedar planks looked and smelled great. I used the Behr clear coating for cedar. A fun project to do for the weekend. Enjoy!

Review 6 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
the package i grabbed looked like it had already been opened. A few of the tongues were broken before I left the store. I had a hard time lining up the tongues and grooves, which isnt surprising considering each is less than 1/8". I had a few tongues snap off. All this aside, the wood itself is quite nice for the price. I only used it for a small spot. If I were to do a whole room, I'd contemplate cutting off the bottom groove and using it more like shiplap.
Pros: Vibrant Color, Stylish, Light Weight

Review 9 for 14 sq. ft. Western Cedar Planks (6-Pack)
We used these planks for lining the back of an old entertainment center we were repurposing as an armoire. After removing the cabinet's original plywood back we cut the planks to length and nailed them at the top, bottom and center shelf edges as well as the side edges. Directions for using the planks as wall paneling were included, as well as information on sealing the wood but we left ours unfinished for the moth-repelling cedar scent. Now I have the perfect freestanding cedar closet for storing the woolens I use in crafting handmade rugs.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Straight, High Quality, Light Weight
