A downside to Building with Coosa Board

Frequent blade and bit sharpening. Even with tungsten-carbide blades and bits, the glass in the Coosa Board dulls much quicker than wood. As a result, blades and bits get sent out for sharpening more often. This latest batch, four circular blades, a dado blade set, about six router bits was a $200 sharpening job. The dado blade alone was about $50.

The upside at this point is we are using less and less Coosa Board.

Interesting looking product, Coosa board.

Do you nail/screw it like plywood, or glass it in?

It will take nails and screws. Though smaller tapping screws have a tough time making a bite.
