Our most popular material is Reconstituted, Compressed Hardwood from the Weathertex® brand, which is made from 97% timber and 3% Natural wax. Affordable and practical, it does not contain any VOC. Suitable for interior and exterior application, it has a 7-year warranty against rotting, splitting or cracking, and is available in a smooth finish on both sides, or a ‘woodsman’ emboss on one side, which has a rough tree like grain. For added UV protection it can be finished with a Jarrah or Charcoal Sealer.
MDF- Medium Density Fibreboard - is a smooth, dense wood with no visible surface grains, as it is made up of fine, tightly compressed particles. It can be easily machined, drilled, cut, and filled without damaging the surface. It can be glued together, dowelled together with PVA wood glue, or cut and joined with traditional woodwork techniques. Its smooth surface makes it ideal for varnishing, painting with oil or water-based paints, or even a veneer or laminate finish. It is an indoor-only material and makes a fantastic room divider.
Plywood is a manufactured wood panel made from veneer and compressed to form a ply. It is used instead of plain wood because of its resistance to cracking, splitting, and its general high degree of strength.
