Where does plywood come from?
Plywood is made from an odd number of thin wood layers glued with the grain at 90 degrees to the adjacent layer for strength. Hardboard and chipboard come from the remains of other woods.

How do you replace plywood sidewalls in an inground pool where the vinyl liner has come off and the sides have pulled away?
we are a well known swimming pool construction and renovation company in southport, nc. we'd be happy to help but would need much more information in order to help you. but ge…nerally what you are describing is a project that does not lend itself very well to do-it-yourself fixes. it is heavy and tedious requiring machinery and a degree of expertise to pull off a repair renovation.. contact us anytime. we'll try to help.. 910-457-9145
While plywood is commonly thought to be an uneven number of layers or plies of wood assembled at right angles to each other, the commercial definition is that an assembly of t…hree or more layers is plywood. Therefore plywood can be plastic laminate or veneer with a particleboard or MDF core. Melamine board is not considered to be plywood because the melamine paper is so thin. When specifying plywood you can request veneer core, particle board core, lumber core, multicore ( a combination of veneer and strand board), MDF core. It is critical in constructing plywood that there be a balanced construction i.e. the same thickness and weight of material on each side of the core. For this reason putting plastic laminate on one side of a cabinet door made of melamine is not acceptable. Your nearest AWI, AWMAC, WIC member will be pleased to discuss this subject. www.awinet.org
These are wood panels normally made in 8foot by 4foot sizes. These are made by laminating wood in thin layers (normally 3 millimetres each ply) The will be cross layered to… add strength. Sizes normally are quarter in thing panels, half inch panels 3-quater inch and inch panels. They can be made in Shutter quality which is a rough finish using where finish is not important. They also make in furniture grade where the finish will have a a final layer which is made of a high quality wood that is right make furniture out of. They also make a grade called "Marine ply" which is again high standard and is water proof. Plywood is a type of thin pieces of wooden board that is glued andpressed together. Plywood is used to build homes and furniture.
Plywood is primarily used where you need either stability or strength. Plywood is called that because it is made up by gluing separate layers (each called a ply) together into… a solid sheet. Each successive ply in a stack is at right angles to the one below it. As a result, plywood does not change dimension (except perhaps for a tiny amount of thickness) as it undergoes humidity changes, while regular solid wood does. If you have a single panel door that is 16" wide, with the grain running vertically, as the humidity in the area increases, the door will grow in width, perhaps as much as a quarter of an inch. When the humidity drops, the board will shrink back to the original size. This happens very slowly, and is slowed even more by various finishes. However, it will not grow (or not nearly as much) vertically. When making furniture, it is important to take this into account so you don't have a glue joint with wood grain at right angles, or the joint will eventually fail. Plywood, because of the cross ply construction, does not change size with humidity. In construction, it is important to have this stability. Also, a plywood panel is typically stronger than the same sized panel of the same type of wood. Even minor imperfectons (knot holes, etc) don't dramatically affect the strength of a plywood panel, but certainly would in a solid wood panel. Of course, you need to pay attention to the type of plywood. Interior grades don't have waterproof glue. Exterior grades have a more water resistant glue and work in most cases, but if you really want to resist water, you would want marine grades of plywood. No grade will last all that long unless it is protected (covered with siding, roofing or painted).

plywood comes from around Australia or new Guernsey but use this from me OK bye
It ranges from 4m by 4m to 1800m by 1600m.
No, normal size for plywood is 4 x 8.
Plywood is thin veneers of wood glued together. Any tree which canbe peeled into a veneer may be used for plywood. The most commonlyused tree is pine. Oak, birth, and lauan ar…e also common forcertain uses.

Plywood comes in many thicknesses from 1/8 inch right up to 1,1/2 inch. Standard in Canada now is 12.5 mm . My favorite plywood store, Smith Plywoods in Surrey BC, has many th…icknesses, many grades, and over 100 different facings on plywood. You can get almost any hardwood on the face of their sheets.
It's like a multilayer sandwich of glue and thin sheets of wood. The grain is rotated to make it stronger. Then it's shoved into a press to smush it together and cured.
The fact that plywood consists of fibers ("the grain of the wood") that are laminated in successive layers orthogonal to one another (i.e., at a 90 degree angle) gives it trem…endous structural strength - much higher than a wood product where all of the fibers are aligned in parallel (as in ordinary wood).
No, it is treated and manufactured under much higher pressure, free of voids, and will cost even more than exterior plywood, which is costlier than "regular" plywood. Mar…ine plywood is good enough for boat building . But regular plywood can only be used for furniture , decoration .
There are range of ply boards for "shuttering grade" which is very basic to furniture grade which is well made with no gaps in the layers and is finished in a range of expensi…ve laminates such as Oak, Elm Cyprus etc. These work well and can be used for carcases of the main cabinets which can be then sanded and stained to a very acceptable finish The edges do however need some king of solid wood finish as you can see the ply format. The panels come in 8 x 4 sheets from 3/16 to 1 inch and include a marine ply which is waterproofed ready for use The boards can be used as flooring right though to furniture and when laninated together can be used in roofing. If shaping with routers and shaping spindles it can really take the life out of the cutter edge much quicker than conventinal wood due to the glues used in lamination
That is plywood faced at each side by a thin layer of hardwood. Much used in cabinetry. I go often to a local store where they have almost 100 varieties of this.
