With its higher density, MDF can sometimes be a better option than plywood.

Usually used in internal applications such as shelving and cabinet making, MDF is heavier and more rigid than plywood. It may be used to make display cabinets and interior fittings for shops and showrooms.

MDF can be painted to produce a smooth quality surface. Because MDF has no grain, it can be cut, drilled, machined and filed without damaging the surface.

Veneered MDF provides many of the advantages of MDF with a decorative wood veneer surface layer.  These are available in walnut, ash, oak, beech, cherry and much more.  Ideal for:
  • Shelving
  • Display cabinets
  • Shop fittings
  • Furniture making
  • Wall linings
  • Interior Joinery


Oriented strand board (or sterling board as it is sometimes known) is a quality, more affordable alternative to Plywood.

The design of OSB allows it to be used in most of the same applications as plywood. Coated OSB is also available which is ideal for site hoardings or a temporary fence structure.

OSB can also be used in floors and roofs, either as a standard board or tongue and grooved board, which helps stability and strength.  Ideal for:
  • Flooring
  • Walls
  • Roof sheathing
  • Shelves
  • Kennels / stables
  • Temporary fence structures


Flooring grade chipboard is a very durable, high-density moisture-resistant board.

All boards are tongue and groove for improved stability and easier installation and are available in either 18 or 22mm thicknesses.

Standard grade chipboard or particleboard is a cheaper, more dense alternative to plywood and is an ideal substitute when appearance and strength are less important than cost.  Ideal for:
  • Flooring
  • Walls
  • Furniture
  • Cabinets


Sundeala is a pin board made from waste paper.

Usually used for notice boards, this sanded board is also ideal for model railway enthusiasts. We offer these boards at 8′ x 4′ x 9mm.

They're ideal for notice/ display boards and model railway layouts.
