Grade: MR grade plywood should be
used in dry areas of the house-- for instance, to make the bed, sofa,
bookshelves, desks & drawers, study table and more. BWP grade plywood can
be used in every area of the house but should be especially used to make kitchen
cabinets, coffee tables, dining tables, bathroom vanities and the likes.
Thickness: Plywood come in different
thicknesses to help you choose the correct one for your requirement. For
instance, you will need a thick plywood to make a weight-absorbing bed while a
thinner plywood will do for a coffee table. This is because the thicker the
plywood, the denser it is, the stronger it will be. Apart from the density of
the plywood, thickness also matters when there is a question of practicality.
Thinner plywood works better to make compartments or partitions inside a closet
or a drawer where thick plywood would not give the desired outcome.
Size: Plywood can be found in sheets
of different sizes-- a small sheet can be used to make a kid’s chair, table or
even a bedside table whereas a bigger plywood sheet will be more feasible for
making a home-office table.
