Gosh, this really started something. My husband started out as a carpenter, now with our mill we are more of custom architectural woodworkers. We build anything in your house to match what you all ready have. So . . . I know what particle board, ox board, MDF and all the rest is. I was thinking that the question was relating to mat board and possibly something like it called chip board, not anything made of wood. I have seen in scrap booking catalogs pre-cut shapes referred to as being from "chip board" which I thought was something like mat board, maybe not as refined, smooth.
Anything that is 1/16 inch thick, made from paper and can be glued and sanded would be find for the tutorials I make. I am not using wood. TTYL Kris
