Although you may have the impression that veneer plywood is weaker than "solid" wood, this is actually not true. The use of manufactured plywood is often preferable because it does not easily crack or warp. Plywood layers, also known as veneer, are made by connecting the layers with the grains in opposite directions. Plywood gains strength when the layers are glued together in this manner. Thus, a piece of furniture made with plywood actually has more strength and potential longevity than furniture made with standard wood solids.

Due to its strength, veneer plywood is ideal for cabinets, walls or any types of furniture that require extra durability. It makes excellent book shelves for storage of heavy books and robust tables that will become heirloom pieces. You are sure to find many uses in your home for plywood because of its universal versatility.
