Hardwood Plywood is plywood which has a face and back veneer of hardwood as opposed to a softwood such as pine, cedar, spruce etc. Hardwood plywood panel comprises of a core made from either softwood or hardwood then faced and backed with a veneer of finish or stain grade hardwood and therefore can be used in the manufacture of furniture, cabinets, millwork and other decorative applications.
It’s no wonder that hardwood plywood long ago supplanted solid lumber as the material of choice for built-ins, cabinets and many kinds of furniture. More stable than solid wood and available in many grades and species, plywood is relatively economical.
