Try something new with Norbord!  John Penny did!

The hunt to find the best product is something we all do – the best wok, the best car, the best face cream!

And if you are a joiner, builder, DIY-er, handy/craftperson, you are always on the look-out for good stuff! After all, your reputation depends on it.

So often though, once you find your “tried and tested”, you may never change (think utilities!); but a change is as good as a rest they say. 

John Penny, furniture maker from JP Joinery, found himself in this situation; until his supplier recommended Norbord’s very own CaberWood MDF when John struggled to source his usual MDF.

John ordered samples from each product in the range to put them to the test. And he is so glad he did.  The results were so much better; the most noticeable difference was the lack of grain resin. “A perfect finish”, in John’s words. With a little sanding, it was easy for John to achieve complete super smoothness and he found the face he could achieve on the edges to be significantly better than with his former top choice.

To see the impressive results for yourself, watch the video here.

The Norbord CaberWood MDF range comprises of five different products CaberWood MDF Trade, CaberWood MDF Trade MR, CaberWood MDF Pro, CaberWood MDF Pro MR and CaberWood Industrial. John has tried the full Norbord range and got a great spray finish on every product. For the finish he could achieve on the edges, John highlighted CaberWood Industrial as his favourite but was just as happy with the Pro and Trade boards.

For John Penny, taking a chance on a new product has certainly paid off…after working with the sample boards John has opted to use the unbeatable Norbord CaberWood MDF range for his next big job.

So go for CaberWood MDF and enjoy! Order your own samples right here.
