Mushroom Board comes from reclaiming softer woods like hemlock, cedar and cypress from commercial mushroom growing beds and is growing in popularity due to it’s natural beauty and unique washboard-like surface. In the process of growing mushrooms, the softer part of the wood grain erodes, leaving the boards looking like they’ve been sandblasted. The wood color ages to a dark knot and rich golden honey patina.
This unique wood has endured years of acid laden compost, moisture, and abrasion and as a result is one of our most favored character woods. Mushroom Board is an excellent choice for wall and ceiling treatments, cabinetry, door making, and exterior applications.
