What is Plywood?

Plywood is a composite timber material manufactured by laying sheets of veneer on top of one another. The grains are aligned at a 90-degree angle to increase durability and strength. The method of laying the sheets is called cross graining. Plywood falls in the same category of engineered wood as chip board panels and MDF panels.

The structural integrity of these boards are fairly high. The veneer sheets have reduced tendencies to split when nailed at the edges. Furthermore, they are not prone to shrink or expand under different weather conditions, therefore, will no easily warp. The improve dimensional stability is also partly contributed by laying odd number of sheets in order to keep balance across whichever directions.
