Plywood is not only the oldest of the range of wood-based panels but it is also the most variable panel product, encompassing a wide range of timber species cut into veneers of differing thicknesses which are bonded together with a range of adhesives to give plywoods with lay ups of different appearances, colours, density and performance. Whilst plywood has many major attributes as a sheet material, its greatest weakness lies in its extensive variability. Characterisation and quantification of this variability has represented a major challenge over many decades to the efficient use of plywood.
