    We're in agreement. I have seen a few voids in BS-1088, though this is over hundreds of inspected sheets. As a rule, it's very dependable. In the end, it's up to the purchaser to figure out what they have and if the supplier can be trusted. I have a few I rarely question, while others I always do. I've never seen a void in a Joubert sheet.

    Thanks for posting this, I have seen this before but I can't for the life of me see how this is an improvement over BS1088, in fact visually, looking at the edges it does not look near as good. I just don't get it, I see no reason to try to improve on BS 1088, to me its about as perfect a wood product as iv'e ever seen, I see no way to improve it.

    My impression was that the requirement of a minimum stress grade of F14 is what set it above the British standard.
    Am I wrong ?

    rr, i just realized i had not responded back to you, sorry. Could you explain what the F14 grade means. I suspect it may be something that tries to solve a problem that doesn't exist. By this I mean that i see arguments made all the time that material a is stronger than material b which only matters if material b is not adequate. I have used many hundreds of sheets of BS1088 from manufacturers from many nations and have never found it lacking in any way.

    Nope, I can’t, just slavishly regurgitating the promoional material.
    I was hoping somebody else could. :D
