Masonite in Furniture

Posted by rlevins (My Page) on

Does anyone know about Masonite's durability for furniture use? I've done quite a bit of research on today's furniture construction and realize that even high-end companies use plywood/chinese leather etc. We've chosen a furniture company in which we have a certain amount of trust for our price range. They assemble their furniture locally. I knew this company used plywood but was disappointed to learn they also use masonite in parts (non-load bearing) of their construction. Would like some feedback. Will post in a few weeks about their customer service.

RE: Masonite in Furniture

I've seen some plywood that has been pretty crappy and would have been glad to have quality hardboard there instead. I would not have a problem with ordinary furniture having Masonite back panels, say on a dresser. I've seen 1 to 2 mm cardboard on some RTA bookcase back panels.
