Default Advantech flooring for spoilboard.

It's time for a new spoilboard so instead of MDF, I'm using a piece of Advantech flooring that I had leftover from my last remodel project. It's way stiffer and holds screws better than plywood or chipboard and definitely MDF so time will tell but so far it surfaced great and I've got high expectations but I've never seen anyone else using it so we'll see...

Also waterproof, so humidity swelling should not be an issue. I think it will prove a good decision.

And until you surfaced the writing off, Joe, it had a limited lifetime warranty...

Well, that was the main reason for this decision. My top layer of MDF would change shape sometimes multiple times a day. It was screwed instead of glued to the bottom layer but I wanted it to be easily replaceable. I think this will be better.
Funny David! Maybe I can use a sharpie and get my warranty back???
It's raining and the shop doors are open and the spoilboard is still as straight as a Harbor Freight straight edge!! 😉 My Z accuracy is gonna be a welcome improvement.

It sounds like a great idea, Joe. I never thought of Advantech, even though I've used it and can attest to it's stability and resistance to moisture. And I'm glad to hear that it surfaced OK. Thanks!

It seems I never finish what I

I don't do any remodeling or use material like that, so without doing any searches yet I have to ask is Advantech flooring is just a brand of OSB flooring? I'm heading to Lowe's later and I can look at OSB flooring there unless Advantech flooring is different (they may have Advantech for all I know...).

Here is a link to find dealers near you David https://www.huberwood.com/locations

Also Lowes here carries it in all the store, I tried the link I sent and several local lumber yards have it.
