although it’s used extensively in the construction industry, I still can’t think of a good use for it in my wood shop

I wouldn’t even have that nasty looking mess in my shop for shop furniture. That mess is a pathetic excuse for furniture. If I took something home like that to my wife she would toss me back out the door on my head. No way would I show that mess to any of our clients either nor would I build a piece of it for anyone

haha good one jwmalone. Thanks for the humor today. .

That dude will probably get raved reviews for it in NYC. Here in these mountains he would get asked why did you mess up all that good construction grade stuff, have you lost your mind?

Saw those and immediately thought, “A new use for scrap construction materials!” I actually thought someone was dumpster diving construction dumpsters for furniture project fodder.

Hideous. But, the hipsters will probably eat it up….

Back when I was in Desert Storm, we had a guy in my squadron that packed some carpentry tools along, and he made furniture out of this stuff and broken down pallets. In a practical-sense, it worked great.

First and foremost, thank you for your service, much appreciated.

Hey whats all the bad vibes guys, its OSB
Oriented Strand Board
Get the right grade and you can build house framing with it!

I hauled some out of the dump bin and made a tool box for my Ute! mainly as I had never worked with it before.

I was curious as to its durability

Made a lid

Its been in the back of my ute for 12 Months now


Still going strong and was a hit with kids when I left it in the front yard on Haloween!!

Not sure I could cop furniture in my house with it though.

On the other hand, I wonder if OSB veneer is available. This would be great for those of us that want to be a part of this movement that, according to the web site, is “Challenging everyday transient objects”, but still enjoy working with real wood.

OSB veneer…. come on …now you are being sillier than me, What will it be next a gold leaf version will be produced!!

Come to think of it I still have some left over, so maybe I could whip up a project with it and crack the Daily Top 3…. or possibly even get my head cracked by you guys for doing it!

As Monte suggested just a passing fad.

OSB for furniture? I don’t see that working out very well. Ask anyone that has ever cut a 6”x96” rip off of a sheet of OSB. Then cut a 6”x96” rip from a sheet of plywood. Lay one on top of the other. The difference will be clear.

No self respecting woodworker in their right mind would use that stuff for any quality work or furniture. It has its place in construction but not in fine woodwork… It is but-ass ugly.
