  • Solid sustainable hardwood timber
  • Lightweight for easy installation and maximum design options
  • Easy to install - DIY brad gun and adhesive

Paulownia timber’s appearance closely resembles American ash. It is highly regarded for its grain and natural smooth surface (like spun silk). A wood with minimal knots, it is perfect for painting, coating or staining, and depending on your finish, will have a wonderful grain showthrough.

These raw boards come ready-cut with a V-joint tongue and groove profile, so all you have to do is soap, wax, stain, paint, varnish or whatever you like, then install with a brad gun and adhesive.
No tricky carpentry is needed, making your DIY project easy and you'll be guaranteed of a professional finish when you use the matching trims.

Glosswood was launched in 1998 by Perth timber specialists, who wanted to bring a quality prefinished sustainable lining board to the Australian design market. They sourced paulownia, a timber with the perfect attributes for a new natural product range, and developed a specialised low-VOC water-based UV coating system (not solvent-based) in their Perth factory. In 2004, Glosswood Prefinished Lining Board was born as a ready-to-install, eco-minded alternative to native hardwoods. The lining board took out a HIA Product Innovation Award in 2005. Glosswood launched a new colour range in a low-VOC matte stain in 2013. Visit for more information.
* Paulownia is a sustainable lightweight plantation-grown hardwood that is considered to be one of the fastest growing trees on the planet. It can grow up to two metres a year, so can be harvested at 10-12 years (pine is harvested at 20 years, jarrah at 70 years) and can reshoot up to six times before replanting is needed.

Glosswood prefinished lining boards come ready to install. They are end-matched, coated on all four sides with a superior UV coating or oil-based stain (to ensure a natural colour, beautiful grain showthrough and quality), and come with trims and mouldings for a professional finish to your project.
