Corrugated Wood-Based Panels Add Texture

To achieve the look above, you'd probably have to go out and buy yourself some corrugated metal and cut it to size using a metal saw (See a great galvanized shower surround here.) That is no longer the case. Enter Wellboard, a 100% natural wood product that comes in some interesting profiles.

Kraftplex and Wellboard are two new sustainably made wood-based products both made from 100% cellulose. They can be used for everything from furniture to 3D printing. Both types of panels are formed using heat and pressure which compress and form them into a finished product. While they're both made and distributed in the UK, there's always hope for innovative materials like these reaching, or better yet being produced, in the U.S. soon.

Kraftplex is a versatile wooden sheeting that reflects characteristics of metal, composite and plastic including stability, flexibility and shape ability.

Wellboard on the other hand is a corrugated surface with tremendous flexibility, great for exhibitions, shop and furniture construction.
