Secret Stash plywood panel concealment, by Yi-Ting Ching.

With June behind us, we’re continuing our monthly materials theme in July with “Plywood Month.”

Actually, it’s “Plywood Month” only because “Manufactured Wood Panel Month” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. But it’s all fair game for this theme: MDF, particleboard, OSB, LVL, PSL, and any other alphabet-soup type panel products mostly made from cellulose. In fact, alternative plywood-replacement panel products made from minerals, plastics or other non-biological, recycled and/or recyclable materials could also fit the bill. If you can cut it, fasten it, and use it like plywood, we’re interested in it.

This subject is a real smorgasboard, for us, but as always we’re glad to have your feedback and suggestions for themed content. If there’s something topical you’d like to see, please let us know, below.
