The use of stranded particular (OSB) board is a bad idea.

I’m wondering if it was a worse choice over trying to turn the bottom of my last christmas tree? Think there might still be some sap on my ceiling!

It makes great sheathing for home construction.

Turning OSB sounds like more fun than is prudent. I want to see it.

I personally don’t like using any board that mother nature did make herself. But sometimes we all have to.

Like many other I hate OSB. I only use it for sheathing any more.

Buddy of mine thought it would be better than MDF for a benchtop, then tried to put Formica on it. After 6 months called me and asked me to make him a new top. Seems the Formica did not stick as well to the very rough surface. The edges? Forgot about it, I laughed when I saw the thing in his burn pile.

Maybe it has something to do with this:.... (By the way “OSB” means “Oriented Strand Board.” I have no idea what “stranded particular board” is, unless this is a different country name.

Health and safety

The resins used to create OSB have raised questions regarding the potential for OSB to emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde. Urea-formaldehyde is more toxic and should be avoided in home use. Phenol-formaldehyde products are considered to be relatively hazard-free. Some newer types of OSB, so-called ”New-generation” OSB panels, use isocyanate resins that do not contain formaldehyde and are considered non-volatile when cured.**[9] Industry trade groups assert that formaldehyde emissions from North American OSB are “negligible or nonexistent”.[10]

Some manufacturers treat the wood chips with various borate compounds which are toxic to termites, wood boring beetles, molds, and fungi, but not mammals in applied doses.

In which case? ...... Yes. It has it’s limits. I wouldn’t use it for any kind of an exposed Finish, but as a “Base” Material or Sheathing, why not use it?

Am I close Jack or is this something You’re just going to keep to Yourself? I’m sure We’d all like to know.

Thanks: Rick

I can tell you from experience when you paint this stuff it absorbs paint like a sponge. You can add that to another one of my ”seemed like a good idea at the time” moments.

The walls in my shop are OSB. I spray primed and painted them … THREE times!
