What are some uses for Masonite board?


Answer by  Anne56 (40)

We use Masonite boards as paint boards for watercolor paintings. When the painting is complete I leave it on the board to dry flat overnight. Masonite boards also make great toy block building surfaces when laid over carpet. They can also be used as business file separators.

Masonite boards can be used in place of siding on home exteriors. These boards constructed of wood fibers, wax, and resins are also used in furniture production as well as cabinet making.

Masonite is a fairly sturdy board that can be used for non-weight bearing construction. You can make some simple furniture out of it, but not for anything too heavy. It's also very popular with painters because it won't warp under wet paint. You can paint it with any type of paint, latex, oil or acrylic.

Masonite is good for when you need something reasonably strong but don't care about looks. Examples would be the back of a bookshelf or the bottom of a drawer.

Masonite board can be used as an inexpensive building supply in furniture production and in some small construction projects. In the 40's to preserve metal for the war effort license plates in the province of Quebec, Canada were made of Masonite!

Masonite is usually used to make drawers and bookshelf's. It is strong but in looks it is not that good, compared to all the other materials available in the marker.
