Plywood is stronger than laminated chipboard, meaning it’s less likely to sag when supporting heavy items. It’s a popular option because it’s easy to work with, cut and drill, and can be finished using stains, varnish or paint. From external cladding and doors to flooring, furniture and even stairs, there is a wide range of possible uses for plywood.

 

Cutting Plywood

At Cut My Wood, we offer plywood cut to size for any project or DIY task you may have in mind. Plywood can be cut by hand, as well as laser cut and even laser engraved, making it extremely versatile and easy to work with. It can also be sanded or routed to create any desired edge effect you require for your build, though trims are commonly used to disguise the layers of the ply board.

 

Types of Plywood

There are various grains and thicknesses of plywood to choose from, with 18mm plywood being the most common thickness as it is strong enough to create shelving or cabinets from. Marine plywood is often used in boat building and the construction industry for exterior applications as it can be exposed to moisture for long periods without deteriorating. Birch plywood is a high-quality hardwood ply board which offers structural stability and a superior quality finish.

 

Laser Cut Plywood

Laser cut plywood provides an exact and precise measurement to meet your specifications. Due to the nature of laser cutting, the edges of the ply may darken slightly, an effect which becomes more pronounced as the ply gets thicker. This is an effect that is sometimes sought out for aesthetic purposes and, by de-focusing the laser slightly, the edge can be darkened further for a more rustic finish.
