5 facts about Plywood & Solid Wood

April 11, 2017

 

What is PlyWood

 

Plywood is made from both softwoods and hardwoods. Plywood is a manufactured wood product that is made from multiple layers or plies of thin solid wood that are processed to form a panel of a specific thickness. The layers are oriented so that the one layer is 90 degree relative to next adjacent plies. This improves both the strength and stability of the plywood.

 

Plywood is ideal for applications that require the material that is not susceptible to cracking, shrinking, or warping which include kitchen cabinets, desktops, and storage containers, wardrobes, shoe cabinets and TV console.

 

Laminated plywood surfaces are easier to maintain, because they are scratch resistant, moisture resistant and can just be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

 

Solid wood on the other hand, does not need much introduction. It's the natural wood that is obtained from trees. The trees are first felled, and the timber logs are then cut in the saw mills to smaller sizes and these wooden blocks are then used for making furniture. Amongst the most popular solid woods are teak wood, oak wood, cherry, maple, mahogany.However, good quality solid wood is much costlier compared to plywood.
