Draftboard. . . Exactly what is it?


#1

What is draftboard and what type projects are best matched for draftboard? Newbie here obviously…sorry about my lack of background knowledge. Thanks for your replies.

The practical difference between draftboard and the other proofgrade wood they sell is that the draftboard is unfinished. It appears to be the same MDF-type core that is used in the thin plywood, just without the hardwood laminate on the outside.

Because it’s cheaper, it’s a good choice for running test cuts and prototypes that you expect to mess up or don’t intend to keep. Or for things that don’t need a fancy finish. Or you can paint it. Or laminate it. The only limit is yourself.
