Using wood as a mosaic base

You can use very thin wood boards for mosaic plaques or pot holders. However,
if the wooden board is around 9mm thick (about 1/3rd of an inch) then I wouldn't
suggest making the mosaic larger than 30 to 40 cm squared (11 to 15 inches).
If you are making a larger mosaic then you will need a thicker wooden board,
starting at around 12mm (1/2 inch) and up. This will give support and strength to the
mosaic as the tesserae required to cover and area of that size will be heavy and
would possibly break a smaller board over time.
