Nothing spectacular, does the job as intended. It is after all only a piece of wood. Pricey for what it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scorpion Board Meeting
This product is a pine board fabricated from natural wood, to a width suitable for shelving buy glueing narrow strips together laterally.
The advantages of this process prevent warping and twisting, sometimes found in broad planks, due to the grain of the timber when cut from the trunk of the tree.
Care should be given to selecting individual shelf-boards; as darkened 'knots' are visible [and may fall-out] needing additional treatment.
However, if the board is to be stained and polished, this knotting may enhance the finished product.
This item is good value for money as a utility board.
More durable [ and expensive ] boards are available in Homebase, if the situation demands.
I can also recommend the Homebase 1" Round Detail Paintbrush.
The Homebase 'Recommendations' catalogue leaves a lot to be desired!!!

This is a great product. Excellent, stable timber which accepted well the finish of stain and varnish I used on it. Will be getting more when I have to do the next job on the list...

these shelves are good as long as you check carefully before purchase as some were warped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sjbrownderby Flat and straight.
I was surprised to receive an email requesting me to write a review about a piece of wood I recently purchased from Homebase. Altogether I have purchased three.........all the same. So first of all I can comment favourably on the consistency of the product because all three have been the same. I do intend to purchase a further piece to complete the project. So, it's flat, straight and does the job it was purchased to do. I can say no more.

As wood goes this was a very good piece, so much so that I have purchased more and they appear to be equally as good.

This piece of wood was exactly what I needed for a shelf. I thought I'd have to fiddle about getting something cut and sized etc. but this pre-cut shelf in plastic wrap was just the ticket. What's more it fitted perfectly the space I had. After a coat of combined stain/varnish it adds a touch of class to the kitchen where there used to be an old melomime shelf.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Merlan Just what was needed
I was replacing some shelves on adjustable brackets in a room we had just had decorated. The original shelves were a coloured, plastic-coated chipboard which didn't suit the new decor. I was therefore looking for some solid wood shelves - and these were exactly the right length, width and thickness.
