Dressed-Up Drop Ceiling. Why settle for an institutional-looking ceiling just to provide access to mechanicals? Sauder says its WoodTrac Ceiling System can be used to make a new or existing grid ceiling look like custom-crafted wood. The product consists of replacement panels and moldings that fasten to a metal grid with clips; they're made of laminate veneer over an MDF core. A variety of molding profiles and finish options are available. The clips are compatible with any 15„16- or 1-inch-wide suspended ceiling grid. Prices for panels, moldings, and clips range from $3.50 to $5 per square foot. Sauder Woodworking Co., 800/523-3987, woodtracbysauder.com.
