Benefits of Plywood

  • Strength

Plywood is made along the grain rather than across, making it 25 times stronger than other types of wood. This makes it a popular wood type for many different projects as plywood is able to withstand the force that many other types of wood cannot. Plywood is so strong due to the multiple layers of wood that are combined to create the finished product.

How is plywood made?

Plywood is made from several layers of different wood which are usually thin. Combining several lawyers of wood veneer allows manufacturers to create plywood that is exceptionally strong and durable. The wood is usually glued together and you won’t be able to notice that it was once several different pieces of wood. Due to cross-graining that occurs during the process, plywood is much less likely to split and has improved dimensional stability.
