What is Underlayment?

Underlayment Finnish Spruce is a plywood consisting of 7 layers and is made from Finnish spruce. Like other types of plywood, Underlayment Finnish Spruce consists of several layers of wood veneer. These layers are glued together crosswise, making the board very strong and barely warpable. These are therefore directly the advantages of such types of plywood compared to solid wood. The end edges are beautiful to look at due to the layers and are often kept in sight. The only thing to bear in mind when working Underlayment Finnish Spruce is the risk of splitting.

DIY budget desk underlayment

Want to make a cheap and stylish Underlayment desk yourself? Then let us cut an Underlayment panel to the desired size. Have the sides rounded off at 4 mm. Buy 2 trestles and lay the board on the trestles after treatment. Simplicity does not have to be boring, as this example proves. Dress up your workspace with a wall shelf or other accessories that contribute to the desired atmosphere.

Treating Underlayment

To extend the life of your desk, it is no luxury to treat the material carefully. Untreated Underlayment is slowly discoloured by UV light, giving it a yellowish colour. Also, stains quickly seep into untreated sheet material. This is not desirable when you put so much effort into making your own desk! If you want to avoid this, treat the desk with a transparent matt lacquer. First degrease the material well and then sand it lightly before applying the first coat of lacquer. Repeat this at least twice for a smooth result.
