Mushroom board is the term to describe reclaimed lumber that comes from commercial mushroom growing beds. Mushrooms are grown on softwoods such as cypress, hemlock, and cedar. They are perfect for withstanding the elements needed to grow mushrooms, which is constant exposure to soil and moisture.
The woods soak up the minerals and deposits of the mushroom during the growth cycle. The mushrooms also erode the softwood. After the mushrooms are harvested, what is left is an organic, beautiful sculpted effect, that has open-grained textures and distinct chocolate hues.
Mushroom boards can be used for many projects and even makes great siding! No staining, no sealant, no painting, it can just be allowed to age gracefully and it remains beautiful years later.
