Particleboard

Fact of the Day: particleboard

Particleboard, also called chipboard, fiberboard, and flakeboard, is a composition board made of very small pieces of wood bonded together. It is very hard, dense, heavy material made of reconstituted wood particles. It is available in various thicknesses -- from 3/8" to 3/4" and 4 feet wide by 8, 10, and 12 feet long. Particleboard is also available at some lumber yards precut as shelving (8, 10, 12 inches wide), sometimes with plastic laminate already on it. Particleboard costs less than half of what plywood costs and can be very good material if used for the right project. It is particularly good for kitchen countertops and underlayment. It does not warp.
