Details

Hardwood plywood sheets are a commonly used material, providing an excellent quality finish, and a knot-free surface. The type of wood we offer as default has a high-quality BB/CC grade and is well-suited to demanding weight-bearing environments such as shelving, road construction and storage containers.

With an ideal finish for painting or staining, our hardwood plywood sheets are resistant to shrinking, cracking and splitting, and are less likely to split when used with nails or screws. 

One of the main reasons for using hardwood plywood over standard plywood is its durability in strength and support. Hardwood plywood is designed to withstand stressful pressures over a long duration, making it reliable for consistent use.

Plywood is constructed by taking veneers and using an adhesive to piece the layers together creating a sturdy sheet that can withstand high stress. Our hardwood plywood is made from taking hardwood veneers creating a bonded sheet with stronger properties as well as all the benefits of using solid hardwood wood. 

Our hardwood plywood sheets are ideal for use in decorative projects; furniture; millwork in the creation of chests, built-in closets and wardrobes. Hardwood plywood is also a fantastic material for use in kitchens, cabinets or doors. 

As an aesthetically pleasing material, hardwood plywood sheets are also well-suited to applications such as panelling in homes or commercial spaces, for toys and musical instruments, sports equipment, like skateboards.

Hardwoods have a great surface ideal for staining or lacquering, with the aesthetics of our hardwood sheets being elevated with a great finish to highlight the blemish-free wood.

All of our plywoods can be cut, allowing for various designs and finishes. The thinner sheets of birch plywood are easy to work with and can be cut, routed and assembled easily as they’re light and easy to manoeuvre.

In addition to this, our thicker hardwood plywood sheets, such as our 18mm hardwood plywood, are ideal for heavy load-bearing projects as they are able to give stability and strength through the thicker sheet. We provide all plywood sheets in a wide variety of thicknesses that can be cut to any shape or size to suit your needs.

If you are unsure about what specific thickness you will need, get in contact and we can be sure to assist you.

Key Features

Frequently Asked Questions

What is hardwood plywood used for?

Traditionally hardwood plywood sheets lend themselves for use in decorative projects, furniture such as millwork in the creation of chests, built-in closets and wardrobes, kitchens, cabinets and doors. 

Is hardwood plywood better than solid wood?

Plywood can be used for a wide range of versatile structural applications whether interior or exterior, from furniture to internal panelling. Hardwood plywood has all the properties of real solid wood though works out to be a cheaper alternative.

What is the best wood for subflooring?

Hardwood ply has a smooth surface that’s ideal for staining and lacquering, but can be equally as beautiful without any finishing applications to highlight the clean, blemish-free wood.

Can you paint plywood?

You can paint plywood, but be sure to use primer, as plywood will absorb more paint than you would expect so the primer seals the plywood, and allows it to take to the paint more easily keeping your surface smooth and sealed.

Can you bend plywood?

It is possible to bend plywood. There are numerous ways of bending plywood, but if you are after a sheet that cannot be bent, look at our MDF sheeting.

What is plywood used for?

Plywood can be used for a wide range of versatile structural applications whether interior or exterior, from furniture to internal panelling.

How strong is plywood?

Plywood is relatively strong as it is numerous layers of wood pressed together. For a stronger piece of plywood, look for 5-ply or multi-ply sheets as these will have more layers, and thus more strength.

What are the types of plywood?

We sell a variety of types of plywood, including softwood, hardwood, marine, and birch, all of which have specific characteristics and will aid specific projects. For more information on the respected types, read their descriptions at the bottom of their product pages.

Can I cut plywood?

It is possible to cut plywood yourself, but we are able to do it for you if you request at the point of ordering. To do so yourself please follow safety procedures, and use a sharp saw else you risk the sheet breaking.

How is plywood made?

Plywood is made by glueing a series of thin veneered sheets of wood together. Each adjacent layer is rotated by up to 90 degrees to reduce the risk of splitting when nailed in at the edges. This technique, referred to as cross-grain, improves strength, stability and prevents warping, making it an excellent general-purpose construction panel.

How do you seal plywood edges?

Plywood should be sealed to prevent moisture from affecting the sheets and causing warping. The sealant you use will depend based on how you intend to use the plywood, but you should use something quick-drying and can withstand all temperatures, and be compatible with paint if you intend to paint your plywood.
