What is Plywood?

Ply is the layers of the wooden sheet of 1 to 2  which is compressed and made of thick plywood.

Plywood is the common name for panels made from thin layers or "plies" of wood, glued together with adjacent layers having their wood grain rotated up to 90 degrees to one another. The glue joins the layers together to form a composite material. There are two basic types of plywood. The most common is referred to as "face-grain" plywood. Face-grain veneers are laid with their face grain (the pretty side) out, and the core veneers are laid with their face grain going in the same direction. The other type of plywood is called "veneer-core" plywood. Veneer-core is made from several layers of the same species of wood. The layers are stacked with their face grain going in the same direction, but their core grain going in opposite directions. This gives a stronger panel since the grain of each layer is 90 degrees to the adjacent layers.

Plywood is a manufactured panel made of thin layers of wood (or other materials) glued together at right angles to form a larger, stronger sheet. It's used as an alternative to solid wood and can be sanded, cut, drilled, and painted more easily. Plywood is used in construction and in furniture.
