This fence stands alongside a path to the station in Lancaster. Originally treated with a brown/orange preservative, traces of which can still be seen towards the bottom, its now taking on the familiar silver-grey weathering:

That looks a bit like the fence in my back garden.

Hello Ron. I wouldn't be surprised! It seems to have sprung up everywhere, including the boundary of Morecambe Station, which is painted a rather lurid green for some reason! A far cry from the days when each company had its own 'style, though it does come close to the Midland Railways standard fence type. Sad to say, this is the only shot of wood I have in my files, so I'm going to have to get busy with the camera!

 

Regards

 

Bill

The first 3 shots are NOT chipboard William ............:roll::roll:

They are shots of "Sterling Board", or the generic name,  "Straw Board".  It is made from wood shavings bonded together in a random, but criss-crossing - pattern and all laid in the same plane creating a sort of "random grain" thus giving it it's quite remarkable strength.

Chipboard - or "particle board" - is made from wood particles - or tiny "chips", again resin bonded.  It has no grain and will therefore snap like carrots but is quite strong over short lengths.

Even smaller wood particles - in fact sawdust - is similarly resin bonded to form MDF - "Medium Density Fibreboard" although there is no "fibre" present, in the generally accepted sense !! ;-)  Being made from sawdust, it is as close to being "stable" as any wood product will ever be.  "Movement" in timber is caused by the wood fibres swelling and contracting with changes in humidity.

Thanks for the heads up and clarification Peter!

I must admit the various types of construction materials aren't a strong point other than it's surface appearance which is all I need for my work. In fact I tend to simplify like most laymen and work on the general principle that if it isn't plywood or MDF, its probably chipboard!

Regards

Bill
