Bendable Plywood

Bendable Plywood

BENDABLE PLYWOOD Description: Plywood with a single face veneer and core plies with all grain running perpendicular to face to allow cross-grain bending. Uses: Used mostly as a substrate for building cabinets, etc., with rounded corners. Sheets with clear face veneers are suitable for furniture. Available Sizes: 1/8" and 3/8" are common, though thicker sheets are produced. Sold in 4x8' sheets. Common Grades: Able to conform to tight radii without splitting or cracking with no need for kerf-bending or steaming. Pros: Flexibility allows radiused corners, decorative shapes. Cons: Not designed for structural use, quality of face veneer varies greatly. Where to find it: Building-supply stores and hardwood retailers. Price (3/4"x4x8', sheet unless noted): $35+ (1/8" 4'x8' sheet).

1/4" is one of the top selling products here in the North East. We have it here in our true "lumber yards" not the H/D or Lowes that I am aware of.

What good does it do to know the names of various grades? At least tell us what they mean, and which ones are better.
