Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is a man-made product created from wood bits, which is pressed and bound together by adhesive resin and glue. This humble stuff is mostly used as a substrate during construction projects, leaving other materials to bask in the spotlight. Some prefer prettier plywood, but others have managed to use it as a visible, finish material that is modern and beautiful.
Although OSB is stronger and denser than plywood, it is also more flexible.
Also OSB is more affordable than other regular hardwoods used for building, and even plywood. This makes it a great choice for experimental DIY projects.
Is it for you? If you have worked with OSB before, we will be very pleased if you send us some pictures
