TASKBOARD® Modeling Boards
Taskboard is a low-density sheet material made from sustainable forestry wood. With scissors, craft-knife, or laser cutter - these low-density sheets are extremely easy to cut. For those using a laser cutter, Taskboard facilitates minimal, light-colored scorch marks. It is stable, flat and will not warp. Lightly spray both sides with water and you will be able to form and shape it into curvilinear 3D objects that will become rigid when dry. All sheets are formable except 1/8" thick sheets. For faster drying use a hair dryer, or place in front of a room fan. Some shapes will need to be held with string, rubber bands or hot glue until dry. You will be able to form tighter curves in the direction of the grain, and it is always best to work gently or wrap it over a cylindrical object before you create your shape. Sand the edges to smooth-out any cutting mistakes or to give the edges a softer, rounded look. To glue damp, use hot glue. White glue and Sobo glue will work well on dry pieces. Available in White and Basswood-tone. White is smoother and much better for forming. Basswood-tone has a rougher wood-like texture and produces superior results for surface etching by laser. Available in 1/32", 1/16", and 1/8" thickness.
