Subject: RE: What are Wobble Boards made of?
on second thought, if plaster sheeting was more common in your area, then you grew up in a higher class (richer) area than I did. Also plaster sheeting was more common in brick houses, but masonite was more common in wooden construction (which was more common in Qld). It was also used to "tart up" (modernise) many VJ internally clad houses by nailing it over the VJ boards - in areas that did not prefer plaster sheeting (one of my uncles was a plasterer by trade and it didn't get popular in Qld until the 1970's or very late 1960's) - Qld was perhaps more the home of fibro and masonite than southern states.
