Wood used for Plywood

Hardwood plywood is stronger and of better quality than softwood.

In this article, we will list the different types of wood used to make plywood, but before that here is a brief note on how plywood is made.

Plywood is made by glueing / bonding multi-layer wood veneers (thin pieces/layers of wood) to each other. These thin pieces are obtained by rotary cutting or cutting wood logs. Rotary-cutting is the most common and involves rotating wood veneers using a large lathe-like machine, while a cutter peels the layers from the logs. These veneers are then cut to desired sizes, graded according to their quality, dried using machine dryers and then pressed together under high pressure and temperature.
