We call I OSB Oriented strand Board. Have used it in my shop in place of dry wall in certain areas. Interesting application.

It looks well made, like your other projects. Sucks up a lot of paint. LOL! I primed and painted both sides for moisture protection in my shop.

I never found OSB whilst I was in Finland, but I have been using it a lot here on the house project.
The outside of the workshop is lined with OSB3 (water resistant), then its clad in Thermowood. The inside will be just clad in 18mm OSB3, then painted with PVA/Latex paint. The OSB3 is nowhere near as absorbent as OSB2.
I did find that some of the strands do flake after some time, but easily fixed and repainted if necessary.
As for the cabinet, adds a little character to the doors say in a utility room, after-all, whatever the customers wants – right?
