The general term plywood encompasses several types of board, including Veneer Core, Medium Density Fiberboard, and Particleboard Core. Veneer Core Plywood (VC) is made from three or more layers of wood veneer with grain alternating at 90°. The veneer is cross-layered and joined together by an adhesive. Because of the way in which veneer core is constructed, it also resists cracking, bending, warping, and shrinkage. Pound for pound veneer core plywood is stronger than steel in static bending strength due to cross-layered structure. Medium Density Fiberboard Plywood (MDF) is made from fine wood dust mixed with a binder and heat-pressed into panels. This material is extremely stable to work with, and is typically very consistent from batch to batch. The surface below the veneer is typically free of voids and blisters, resulting in a better veneer consistency and bond. With this better bonding of the wood veneer, there is less chipping during a crosscut operation. Particleboard Core Plywood (PBC) uses a coarser wood dust than MDF. Because of this, it has a slightly lower weight, but the edges and surfaces are not as smooth and consistent.

FormWood uses only the highest quality plywood for laminating to ensure a balanced product. Our state of the art facility is complete with automatic panel lines. We manufacture veneer plywood with quick lead times and rarely have minimums. We can sequence and flitch match your plywood panels, as well as other special matches such as center-balanced and end-matched. We offer over 100 different cuts and veneer species for making laminated plywood, as AA/AA, AA/A, A/A, A/1, A/2, A/3, A/4, etc. We also offer a myriad of different sizes and plywood core thicknesses.
