3458PSAA3Alder Plain Sliced A/3 NAUF Veneer Core 3/4" 5x8
With a fine, light grain pattern and consistent color, Columbia Alder has a fresh look and great workability, making it a versatile choice for paneling, furniture and cabinetry needs. These panels from the Pacific Northwest work well with any interior design, from rustic to contemporary.
The Veneer Core is made with alternating veneer inner plies. In North America, the innerply species are usually softwood (fir or pine) on the west coast and poplar or aspen on the east coast.
Veneer core panels are relatively light in comparison with composite panels, typically weighing about 70 lbs. per 3/4" panel. Veneer core offers great strength and stability with better spanning properties than either particle board or medium density fiberboard (MDF). Veneer core does have a wider variance in thickness in comparison with highly engineered PBC or MDF.
