Beadboard

Another valued product from Kerfkore Company.

Beadboard panels are available in a variety of thickness either with or without a veneer face. Plain Beadboard is made from an MDF core with standard bead spacing of 1 1/2” on center. Other bead spacing is available upon request. Wood veneer faced Beadboard consists of a veneer face applied to MDF core. Veneer faces and panel thickness options are available.

Plain Beadboard is designed to be painted. It is suggested that all panels receive a prime coat before the top coat is applied. A light sanding between coats with a medium to fine sandpaper is recommended. It is best to do this before panels have been installed. Beadboard is also available with a prime coat applied at the factory.

Wood veneer Beadboard is ready for finishing. However it is recommended that the panels be lightly sanded with 180 grit paper to remove any raised grain due to moisture pick-up. Application of stain, sealer and clear top coat is recommended with sanding between coats using 220 grit sandpaper. Wood veneer is a natural product and may accept stain differently depending on the wood grain characteristics. Therefore it is recommended that a small sample be completely finished to evaluate the final results.

Beadboard is normally produced using a high quality MDF core. Optional cores such as veneer core, FR core, NAUF core and MR core products may also be available. Many veneer face options are available in addition to the ones listed.

For wall use as wanes coating the wall should be uniform and plumb. Beadboard can be applied over sheetrock, paneling or other flat surfaces. Beadboard can also be attached to wood stud walls provided they are straight and uniform.

Beadboard can be attached to the wall with nails or construction grade adhesives. When using nails be sure to identify stud locations and nail into both vertical and horizontal studs.

Beadboard panels are available in a 4'X8' size with 1 1/2" standard groove spacing. Optional groove spacing sizes are available.

“R.B. Woodcraft's task was to fabricate a custom museum environment in a large studio glass show. Our success in creating the display components was facilitated by the use of a number of Kerfkore products including Kerfkore, Timberflex, Flexboard, and Foamkore. The variety of lengths, thickness, and bending tolerances helped us meet all the design and engineering challenges that this project presented.”
