Plywood is made of a thin sheet, or coating the fiber direction which arrange the bottom and top sheet by a special glue under great pressure to obtain a certain thickness. The sheets are usually obtained from stripping process logs are rotary. This process is obtained from the width and length of the sheet in a small thickness (0.3mm – 3 mm).

If plywood used to make construction, it is highly resistant to the risk of broken / cracked, warped or twisted which depends also on the thickness. Starting from the standard thickness of 3mm, 4mm, 6,9,12,15,18 mm and so on. At first plywood produced because the need for very large wide.

4. Backing grades, the low quality of the function for jobs because that are not visible structure.


Some of the benefits of the use of plywood when compared to other wood use are:

Whatever the base material used for furniture of our choice, the outer surface must be in finishing so that it looks beautiful. There are various types of styles of finishing materials, among others: Finishing Melamix, Duco Paint and Laminate. The inside of the cabinet usually coated materials melaminto. But the cabinet using glass doors, not lined inside melaminto, but coated with the same material by coating the outside of the cabinet.

Because like the phrase “there is quality there is a price” that is true. Do not get disappointed later, we already pay expensive furniture turns out that we have received using cheap raw materials.

Here there are several types of materials for the manufacture of furniture from the most expensive to the cheapest.

1. Solid wood. Solid wood is the strongest base material than wood, but due to the volume of planting and felling of trees that are not balanced coupled with illegal logging that does not care about reforestation, displaced solid wood supply is limited and the price is more expensive than wood.

2. Plywood. Plywood is a common raw material used for making furniture. The price is relatively cheaper than solid wood. Plywood is a wood that is relatively stronger than other wood species such as hdf, mdf, blockboard or particle board. Plywood base material is bark in layers and pressed. Plywood usually leather Teak, Sungkai, Nyatoh or other bark. With better quality than other wood, causing the plywood furniture has a more expensive price than other wood.

4. MDF. MDF can be used for those of you who have a budget terbatas.harganya slightly cheaper than plywood and blockboard. MDF is fine sawdust like material that is processed paper that is thick and solid. MDF is usually used in the fabrication of furniture that is sold in the form of “be” is usually the outer coating bertexture paper. Mdf or hdf widely used as a raw material imported furniture.

4. HDF & MDF
HDF (High Density Fibreboard) and MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) is made from waste wood plantation.
HDF is denser and stronger than MDF.

5. Particle Board. Particle Board we do not recommend if you want a lasting interior and prone to flooding where you live. Particle board is the lowest type of wood that class. Particle board is very vulnerable water, because it made from pressed sawdust so rough that has pores even bigger than mdf or hdf, making it easy to penetrate the water and does not withstand heavy loads. For the use of furniture in interior design is based on a custom made (special design) particle board rarely used.
