Selecting the correct type (grade) of plywood for making your furniture, it is also equally important that you buy sheets of the right thickness. The ideal plywood thickness varies based on what type of furniture is being constructed, and hence carpenters who are making the piece are in a better position to advise about this aspect. As customers what we have to be aware of is that thicker plywood equates to greater strength and also to increased costs.
Hardwood plywood made from hardwood timber is stronger and more durable compared to softwood. Good quality plywood sheets are usually made from 100% hardwood (meaning all the individual veneers that make up the plywood have been made from hardwood).
