Architects in search of novel uses for humble materials are now using plywood for a higher aesthetic purpose as a finished surface in living spaces. It’s become a handy means of modernizing and warming an interior for a relatively inexpensive cost. In this video I discuss ways to find out if it’s right for your project.

I review: veneer types, grades, thickness, joinery, finishing, where and how to use it.

    I am a design draftsman with larger background as woodworking contractor. I did a number of plywood (finish) build outs for a prominent architectural firm in my area as well as designing other installations for high end design/build millwork shops. Done right, it does take on a special character. And of course the famed miter fold is indispensable.

    The first picture you show, looks like poured concrete with wood backing and then removing the wood to show the grain? We have that type of building style here in Israel. We are hoping to move to America very soon. I have made plywood a floor finish in two of my homes, and it was beautiful and extremely durable. I pulled up the carpet, scrubbed it down, stained it, and poly'd it. Done! I loved it. Looked very nice stained a darker color. I am thinking of going with a grey floor the next time though.

    Hi, thank you for the video. What house is at 3:52 when you are talking about curving the plywood?

    Thank you.

    3/4" plywood is not 3/4" thick.

    I wonder what fire code implications are. I thought that was a main reason for drywall in modern homes.

    Plywood sucks as a finish. It's inherent grain pattern is undesirable and much less than attractive.

    I was hoping this would tell me more about the kind of plywood you sometimes see in bookshelves where the layers are very distinct. I've never seen this plywood in a lumberyard but often in stores or magazines.

    Do you have sources regarding plywood for commercial applications. Specifically looking for ways to finish plywood, to meet code.
