              We have a 4'x8' sheet of what my wife calls bendy board. It was in the house when I married her so all I know is that she calls it 'bendy board'. I bends very well in one direction. I could make a cylinder 8' in circumference and 4' tall. It will also let me bend it in a ripple.

              It's not a laminate like ply wood, but it looks like pieces of wood have been glued edge to edge to make up the 8' length.

              A) Does anyone know the name of this material?

              B) Wife said it was "worth a lot of money", is this true?

              C) Is it worth keeping?
