you begin to look through our plywood selection you
may need to know how hardwood plywood is graded.
Plywood grades are (in best to worst) - A, B, C for
face (front) grades & 1, 2, 3, 4 for back grades.
The lower the letter or number the better the material
will be. All of our plywood is graded to the standards
of the Hardwood Plywood & Veneer Association
A2, B1, B2 is generally considered to be
a good two sided product where both sides may be seen.
Some blemishes are generally allowed on back side.
B3, C3 are intended for use where one
side will predominantly be seen but the other side needs
to be reasonably clean, the back of items in this grade
are generally good material but may have staining, less
that acceptable veneer splices, scratches or other blemishes.
This material works well for use as shelves, drawer
sides & end panels
B4, C4 are considered to be a good one side
product where the back side will not be seen or it does
not matter what is looks like. In A4, B4 or C4
the back of the piece may have open knots, filled knots,
bad veneer seems or be of a different species that the
front. This material will work well for drawer bottoms,
covering of cabinet faces, bar backs & end panels.
