Plywood and Sheet Goods

Hardwood plywood is manufactured for interior finish uses such as cabinets, doors and furniture, and is graded on both front and back veneers. With cores made of particleboard, fiberboard, or a combination of the two. Hardwood plywood is quite durable.


Hardwood Plywood Veneer Cutting Methods

Softwood PlywoodHardwood Plywood

Plain Slicing (Flat Slice)

Plain slicing is the most common method of veneer cutting and produces a consistent cathedral grain pattern. Consecutive leaves of veneer are cut with the blade parallel to the length of the log.

Quarter Slicing

Quarter slicing produces a very straight grain pattern. The cutting blade is perpendicular to the growth rings and quartered leaves are sliced consecutively. A flake pattern may occur in species such as oak due to the radial patterns being bisected.

Rotary Slicing

In rotary slicing, an entire log is mounted on a lathe and peeled to yield continuous sheets of veneer. Rotary cutting creates broad grain patterns which are rarely duplicated. It is the most economical cutting method.

Rift Slicing

In rift slicing, the angle of the blade can be varied to produce veneer with a straight and narrow grain pattern. Rift grain is easily sequenced and matched.


Medium – Density Fibreboard (MDF)

Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) is made by compressing recovered and recycled wood fibre to form an engineered wood product, and costs a fraction of the price of solid wood. Standard MDF is ideal for building countertops, doors, furniture, cabinets and shelving. Moisture-resistant MDF is recommended for interior applications where there is the risk of occasional wetting or prolonged exposure to high levels of Humidity.

Lighter density fibreboards are also available: ultra light-density and light-density. Both are designed for use in situations where the weight of a standard MDF is a factor. Ultra light-density fibreboard is 30% lighter than standard MDF and is commonly used for award plaques, picture frames, table tops, mobile homes and mouldings. Light-density fibre board is 20% lighter than standard MDF and is ideal for many of the applications as standard MDF.

We also stock exterior plywood for your outdoor needs and a flexible product for those radius corners where you must follow a contour. This product canis both an exterior and interior use .
