What are WoodUbends and how are they used? ⚜️

Did you know how easy it is to set a breathtaking highlight for your project with a WoodUbend?

WoodUbends is available in an incredible number of designs, small, large, as ornaments, flourishes, strips for chests of drawers or table surrounds even for the industrial style there are elements.

The base is made of wood dust. Therefore, they generally have all the properties of wood. They can be drilled, sawn and sanded. The special feature, however, is that, when heated, they become flexible like rubber and can therefore even be cut to size if necessary and fit into almost any shape. After cooling, they remain in this position. Unlike air-drying clay, they do not shrink and do not form cracks. The details cannot be damaged during editing by pressing. In the end, it actually looks as if this ornament was already attached during the production of the furniture or project.
