WOOD CHOICES

The below wood choices represent our standard wood. If your project requires a different type of wood, please give us a call, there are many other choices available. Our standard wood is a select veneer clad MDF-core panel. MDF is a sustainable product that is light weight and resistant to warping. Our MDF is FSC, SCS, EPP, and LEED certified, formaldehyde free, and from 100% recycled wood fiber. The laser cut edge on an MDF core creates a pleasing uniform dark color. Any of our unfinished wood choices can be clear-coated, or stained. MAXIMUM CUSTOM PANEL SIZE is 59.5" x 114".
