(water boil proof)for outside. Slide6

Every second boards end grain is turned in the opposite direction of the previous one. This prevents cuppingSlide7
(c) Block board

Types of Particle Board
-Oriented Strand BoardMade by pressing wood chips with resin and waxWax makes it waterproofOften used outdoors for flooring and sheds
