Fabwood Pattern Plank is manufactured to provide moisture free, knot free, and stress-free pattern plank that is machined and semo-finished to size. Fabwood is designed to take the labor of plaining, jointing, and sanding that usually goes along with regular pattern lumber. Sizes are actual and in almost all cases flat and square for off the shelf machining and gluing.
Fabwood Pattern Plank is available in Mahogany, Sugar Pine, Red Alder, Pine, and Poplar species.
Fabwood Pattern Plank is virtually defect free. The grain is tight and straight and gives a better surface after sanding. Fabwood ends are sealed which reduces possibilities of checking/cracking. Fabwood is a very stable product for foundry pattern work and most prototype thermoforming tooling applications.
