WELCOME to Vintage Plywood Mill Works. Home of mid century modern wood panels and ceiling tiles. We reproduce the unique mid-century modern grooved, or ribbed plywood which was popular in the 1940’s – 1950’s. The brand name was Weldtex, but it was also known as combed or striated ceiling tiles and wall panels.
Yes we ship nationwide. To cut to the chase, go to Ordering/Pricing to view our prices and sizes and to contact us with questions.
All of the material we produce on this website has the unique combed/striated pattern. We make this unique pattern for plywood ceiling tiles, MCM accent wall paneling, and hardwood planks for wall and exterior siding.
Examples and variations below.
We can also produce the striated/combed pattern in solid hardwood planks. This hardwood option makes beautiful stained walls or ceiling in various species, including walnut, oak, and birch. Other options are also available. This is a unique wooden wall covering from the 1950’s. There is a variety of ways this unique material can be used. Check out some of these ideas.

Also, please note, there is a major difference between the plywood pine panels and the hardwood planks. All large tiles and large single sheet wall panels are made from pine face plywood, not hardwoods. It’s easy to get confused on this issue. If you need combed material like walnut, birch, oak, mahogany, etc. those will all be in 3/8″ x 5 1/2″ plank form, not plywood panel sizes. Call or email for greater clarity on this important difference.
