Tongue and groove look plywood.
That’s the beauty behind Columbia Forest Products’ Beaded Panels. But check the surface and you’ll find the lasting beauty of Columbia hardwood veneers, and that’s no illusion.
Beaded Panels can be used for wall paneling, wainscoting, cabinet doors and cabinet backers or anywhere you wish to replicate the tongue and groove appearance of fine woodwork.
Good looks and installation ease are just the beginning.
Columbia’s Beaded Panels feature a wide variety of decorative hardwood faces and backs machined with a 1 1/2″ or 3″ on-center beaded groove pattern. Our cutting heads are calibrated to ensure pattern uniformity across the entire sheet, for a convincing illusion of tongue and groove woodwork that matches any existing species used. And since Beaded Panels are unfinished, close color matching with existing molding and millwork is possible. You can finish them or use them in painted applications.
