Are you averse to particle board?

We are happy to announce that we now offer plywood cabinet boxes in addition to our current particle board option.

Particle board is dismissed more harshly than it deserves. Until I visited IWF2010 a few weeks ago, I had no idea that some particle board grades were almost as dense as MDF. And let me just throw in a knowledge tidbit that plywood comes from virgin trees, not wood waste from that already harvested.

plywood shear testWhen people produce the assertion that particle board is like a sponge, I always respond:  ”If you have THAT much water in your kitchen, you have WAY bigger problems than your cabinets.”  Here’s a test that my designer friend Paul Anater did last January on how both plywood and particle board hold up to water exposure.

While particle board is the better choice for cost, consistent thickness and warp control, it has its limitations, as does any other material.  Still, I recognize that some folks just don’t like it.  Period.  Fair enough.

Plywood, please

Just let us know you prefer plywood & we’ll serve it right up with your design!
