Bending Plywood

Do not be intimidated by curved or radius furniture/cabinetry. Bending Plywood or flexible board is designed to flex to take the shape of almost any curved contour. Bending plywood's ability to bend in long-grain or cross-grain directions makes it a versatile panel for complex shaped designs.

Bending Plywood Applications 

On the job site, radius contours can be painted or covered with a wide range of laminates or paper-backed veneers for the finished look you desire. It’s the perfect solution for curved columns, arches, cabinetry and furniture in both residential and commercial settings… anywhere a departure from a straight edge is desired.

 

 

Bending Plywood Specifications

  • Bending Poplar: Rotary peeled hardwood back. Thin veneer face.
  • 3 ply construction: Rotary peeled hardwood outer plies.
  • Thickness: 1/8″, 1/4″, 3/8″ sizes. (See table below)
  • Panel Size: 4′ x 8′ Long grain (could create a 8’ tall cylinder) or 8′ x 4′ Cross grain (could create a 4’ tall cylinder)
  • Minimum radius: 12″ - May be able to flex smaller, but will require significant force. All component parts should be manually “flexed” to achieve maximum flexibility.
  • Sanding: Panels may require site sanding.
  • Applications for bending plywood: Use for curved applications which will be covered with laminate, paper-backed veneers or other thick surfaces. Panels are not designed for structural or exterior use.
