Plywood is manufactured from thin sheets or layers of wood veneer and bonded together with adhesives. Plywood is frequently used as a substitute for plain wood due to its excellent properties such as resistance to shrinking, twisting, and splitting.

Softwood plywood is produced by gluing several layers of dry softwood veneers together with an adhesive. Softwood plywood is used for wall siding, roof decking, concrete formboards, sheathing, floors, and containers. Hardwood plywood is used for interior applications such as furniture, architectural millwork, paneling, cabinets, flooring, store fixtures, and doors.
