Below is some introductory information on our Weldtex, combed plywood go to: Vintage Plywood site for the complete website on this material.
“Weldtex” also called combed or striated wood. Most commonly produced in the mid-century in 3/8” thick pine plywood. You may have seen this in an older home but never knew what it was called. It was used as mid-century modern wooden ceiling tiles and accent wall paneling. This unique MCM grooved, or ribbed plywood was popular in the 1940’s – 1950’s. We have now brought back this unique material in a variety of forms, no longer limited to plywood, but also offering it in solid hardwoods and western red clear cedar.
Most often used as an interior panel and as ceiling tiles in the plywood version (pine only). We have also added various hardwood options in solid 5 ½” wide planks. For more information on this retro plywood panel, please check out our Vintage Plywood site.
