Plywood Hardwood Maple B/BB veneer: what is it?

Plywood panels are boards composed of several veneer layers. In this case, a core of hardwood and a top layer ofesdoorn veneer. Plywood is one of the oldest and, partly for this reason, one of the most popular variants among wood panel materials.

Hardwood core

This plywood panel is composed of several hardhouten veneer layers. These layers are cross-glued to each other. This results in a stable panel. Nevertheless, the wood glued together remains, during sawing and machining plywood can release tension which can cause longer panels to have a slight warp. For this reason, it is important to assemble these panels properly.

Plywood Hardwood Maple B/BB veneer, sheet material with a natural top layer

Unlike melaminated board material, the top layer of veneered panels is a layer of real wood. This gives the material a calm, natural look. Because it is a natural product, there may be colour and texture differences between different panels. No two panels are the same. In addition, it is important that this panel is finished with a lacquer or oil as desired. This prevents discolouration and preserves the top layer.

Maple veneered wood

Wood veneer with maple appearance has a bright and light aesthetic, characterised by a soft, neutral colour and a fine, even grain. The veneer often shows subtle markings with a uniform appearance.

The look of maple veneer is fresh and timeless, making it a versatile choice for various interior styles. The colour of the veneer usually ranges from light to medium brown, depending on the specific source of the wood.

Maple wood veneer is often appreciated for its simple and elegant look, making it suitable for furniture, cabinets, interior finishes and decorative elements. Its even grain and bright colour allow maple veneer to be effortlessly combined with other materials and colours, making it a popular choice for both modern and traditional designs.

Visibility quality plywood B/BB

The quality of plywood surface layers is indicated by letter combinations. There is a letter designation for the visible side (top) and one for the reverse side (bottom). This refers to the quality of the top veneer; the quality of the gluing, for example, is indicated differently. B/BB is an example of a common quality, which can be used for decorative applications. In this, the first letter (in this case B) means the quality of the visible side and the second letter (in this case BB) means the quality of the reverse side. Reads here more about all vision qualities.

This board material has visible side B/BB. The top side has visual quality B, the underside visual quality BB. A plywood panel with face quality B/BB usually has an acceptable visual quality, but does show some imperfections. On the front (the "B" side), colour variations, small knots, repairs and other irregularities may occur, albeit to a limited extent. The reverse side (the "BB" side) may contain more imperfections, such as large knots, repairs and colour variations.

Because of its slightly lower visual quality, plywood with the visibility grade B/BB is often used in applications where aesthetics are not the highest priority. It is used for structural purposes, internal cladding, furniture construction and other applications where the visible surface is less important.

It is important to note that visibility grades can vary depending on local standards and specifications. When purchasing plywood, it is advisable to consult the specific ratings and standards of the manufacturer or supplier to ensure that the wood meets the requirements for the intended application.

In general, plywood with sight grade B/BB offers reasonable visual quality for applications where aesthetics are not a top priority. It combines functional properties with an acceptable surface that meets the basic requirements for many construction and timber projects.

Available thicknesses Plywood Hardwood Maple B/BB veneer

With us, you order customised, high-quality veneered mdf in various thicknesses. You can easily specify the desired thickness in the product configurator. This ensures that the board material meets your requirements: both the size and thickness of the material. The following thicknesses are available: 18 mm.

Edit Plywood Hardwood Maple B/BB veneer sheets

Plywood is an easy sheet material to work with, if you have sharp tools. For drilling holes, we recommend a wood drill with a centre point. Pre-drilling is also recommended for this sheet material. This board material may discolour over time, so finish it with a (clear) varnish, stain or paint. Use an edge sealer to finish the edges of plywood, this will prevent the varnish or stain from soaking into the plywood, which can lead to the loosening of the veneer layers.

Specific applications

Plywood birch is very suitable for projects such as floorboards, joinery, moulds, but also for decorative applications such as tabletops, a countertop, furniture and toys.
