Like MDF, plywood is also engineered wood, made by binding veneer wood sheets together into one solid piece. Plywood sheets come in different grades, so you can choose the right one that suits your needs. Unlike MDF, plywood has visible wood grains, but is free of other imperfections. Low-grade plywood can be used in flooring at homes, while the higher-grade version is perfect for cabinets and shelves.


Advantages of Plywood

Plywood has a lot of advantages that you could consider while getting it installed at your home.

  • Made up of multiple layers of veneer, plywood is a tough material to use at home
  • It does not soak water and liquids like MDF. Thus, it is less susceptible to damage
  • Because of the grains that plywood has, it is easier to stain and thus makes for a great material for cabinets and tabletops
  • Since it is made up of layers, plywood holds screws tightly, as each layer ensures better holding for the screw
  • This material comes in various designs and thicknesses


Disadvantages of Plywood

Before you jump to conclusions, let us tell you some of the disadvantages of plywood that you should consider before buying it:

  • Plywood is more expensive that MDF; and the higher the grade, higher the price
  • Since plywood shows layers on the surface, it has to be finished well with timber or decorative mouldings
  • It is difficult to create designs using plywood since it is difficult to get perfectly smooth cuts on it
  • Plywood splinters easily and the edges that have layers may have voids when not cut properly
