What better endorsement for a product recycled from discarded wheat stalks than “it smells like bread when you cut it”! Wheat straw engineered with formaldehyde-free, emissions-free synthetic resin produces a lightweight board the company says is harder and more moisture resistant than other particleboards and MDF. In addition to cabinetry and furniture, Siegel also specs wheat board as a wall finish material, as shown in this cabin. PrimeBoard, 701.642.1152; www.primeboard.com.
