The veneer sheets undergo a drying process to reduce moisture content and improve stability.


The dried veneer sheets are glued together using adhesives, with each layer oriented perpendicular to the adjacent layer.

This cross-grain construction adds strength and reduces the chances of warping.


The glued veneer stack is pressurized and heated in a hydraulic press to create a strong bond between the layers.


The plywood sheets are trimmed, sanded, and finished according to the desired specifications.

Applications in Softwood Plywood:

Softwood plywood has a wide array of applications in the construction, furniture, and packaging industries:
