Frank Lee -- I went through the same thing. My spell checker suggested 'chloroplast'. I finally figured out that it's not chorrogated material. Of course, coroplast technically isn't corrugated, it's fluted -- flutoplast.

Wood-Skinís Milled Plywood Surfaces Allow It To Fold Like Textile
Wood-Skinís Milled Plywood Surfaces Allow It To Fold Like Textile |


Quote:
First introduced three years ago, Wood-Skin creates sheets of wood that can bend into any polygonal shape. Thatís right, itís malleable wood. Well, itís not exactly pure wood. Instead, itís a composite material consisting of two layers of wood that sandwiches a layer of strong yet flexible synthetic textile...................

To build a piece of furniture, you simply take a sheet, fold it to create the furnitureís shape, and youíre done, facilitating a fabrication process thatís simpler than anything before it.

I remember seeing that stuff. It's inherently two-sided and won't form compound curves; but very interesting otherwise.

The interior shot is also interesting. Possibly a reception area for some sort of business.

Pricing for Wood-Skin starts at Ä230 per square meter.
Ouch.

This:

plastic sheets

These things are amazing to use as belly pans! I have access to a virtually unlimited supply of them for 2 buck apiece, and they come in all kinds of colors.

Turtle's full belly pan was made from these, other than the aluminum panel under the cat and the metal sign that had already replaced the missing front aero panels.
