Blockboard - Veneered Block board
The sheet sizes stocked are:

Block board is manufactured using longitudinal strips of solid timber
making up the core which are bonded together with moisture resistant glue and overlaid
with outer veneers.Note : Minimum quantities may apply.
Standard Utility Blockboard is therefore typically used for making items for
interior use in dry areas such as Cupboards (Carcasses, Shelving & Doors),
Bookcases (Cheeks, Shelves & Plinths) and Loft Hatch Panels (Hinges & Loft
Ladder attachments can be screwed)
Blockboard - the Standard Utility Grade of block board we hold in stock is
suitable for a traditional painted finish
Higher-grade decorative veneer blockboard with finishes such as Oak, Ash etc.
are available to order. Block boards of this type might be chosen for furniture
making where a wood grained appearance is required.
These veneered block boards may be
finished with a clear polish for a natural look or tinted with a coloured wood
stain before sealing.
The decorative grade blockboards are not as popular as they used to be and are
therefore not held in stock. Avon Plywood can supply them to order with a
lead-time of usually just a few working days but subject to availability. Please
enquire for details.
