Topic tags/keywords: question resource


I am seeking environmentally-friendly product recommendations for use in furniture-making – e.g., FSC wood, local manufacturing, formaldehyde free. The product should be available in 3/8”- to 1/2”-thick panels. OSB panels are of particular interest but I am open to other suggestions. Does anyone know where I can find a local plant that manufactures formaldehyde-free OSB?

I’m based in Southern California.

Thanks in advance…

If all you need is panel material, try Peterman lumber in Fontana. They are FSC certified. If you can use hardwoods, “socalwood” here on LJ runs TulePeak Timber and mills local felled trees. All low carbon footprint and as “green” as you can get in my opinion. Very good prices as well

Check with your local plywood center. Mine has or can get green osb, they also inclde proper paper work for each item in the order.
