Decorative Sheet Materials are ideal for building furniture, when you are on budget but still want a creation that looks great. The sheets are suitable for many DIY jobs, such as building shelving, as well as various carcass constructions, including:
- Kitchen Cupboards
The Sheets are edged along the longest edges to match the top and bottom, whilst allowing for the Sheets to be trimmed to any length, whilst iron-on edging can be added to the cut ends – if necessary – to give an overall “finished” look.
What is veneered?
All Decorative Sheet Materials sold by Howarth Timber & Building Supplies are veneered, which means that thin sheets of wood are stuck to the stop and bottom of large sheets. The idea is to create a product that looks similar to a solid wood piece, and is more affordable than solid wood.
Whilst viewed as a cheap option, veneered allows DIYers to create furniture that would not be possible with solid woods, due to temperature changes that would cause it to expand and contract,
Decorative Sheet Materials are typically Veneered MDF, Plywood or Chipboard.
