Every piece meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This is an appearance panel with a satin-smooth sanded face that is ideal for interior and exterior applications. Is often used where a combination of strength, stiffness and appearance are needed such as soffits, porch ceilings, cabinets, built-ins, shelving, utility trailers, yard art and hobbies. Thin sheets of wood (veneer) in alternating wood grain directions, which increases the strength and stiffness of our finished panels. Can be cut, drilled, routed, glued, fastened and finished with ordinary tools. Excellent nail, screw, and staple holding ability allows placement near panel edges without splits.
