Plywood & Veneers
Plywood is a manufactured wood panel made from thin sheets of wood veneer. Plywood is one of the most widely used wood products. Plywood is flexible, inexpensive, workable, and re-usable. Plywood is used instead of plain wood because of its resistance to cracking, shrinkage, splitting, and twisting/warping, and because of its generally high strength. Plywood layers are called veneers. Plywood is used for outdoor use. Plywood is also used as an engineering material for stressed-skin applications, for marine and aviation applications. Plywood is also famous for furniture. Plywood is often in floors, walls and roofs and in packages and boxes.
