Is it treated like plywood?
Plywood is typically treated with a chemical to help it stay true to it’s nature. As opposed to synthetic or natural plywood, plywood is treated like it’s going to be “treated” for a longer period of time. While it would appear plywood can be treated until it becomes totally unusable or unrecognizable, this does not often happen. Plywoods are usually treated after the final cut to ensure it doesn’t degrade.
Plywood’s properties are mostly natural (which allows the wood to hold its shape better) and also have some properties that are often used when creating composite wood. Polyurethane and high-impact wood fillers are typically added to enhance the natural characteristics of polyurethane and woodfill, so that it’s easier to glue and form together.
How do we use plywood?
You can see our PULSE Plywood series here, which has many different designs. For more information, see the page on PULSE: PULSE Plywood.
When you walk into a home made home
The look is similar and the feel the same, but here’s another look. I didn’t want the plywood’s look to be exactly like the home I’d photographed. In this home, I found plywood used a different style, which was used to make walls and ceiling of a different style.
If used, what would a typical construction project look like?
There are a lot of different ways a home’s construction can look, including:
One family building the house
A house designed by the owner and his family
A flat roof
A home built for use by contractors
A construction job that involves laying wood or steel.
I chose to use the former. The home seen here is my house. You can see that many of the steps are painted and built to look like they’re made of solid wood. The kitchen and bathroom are wood finished, and the rest of the house’s construction is wooden panels.
Plywood can be purchased online, in hardware stores, or through a local lumberyard. You may hear about it as “trash,” or “waste material,” with “stupid builders.” You see, there are several different types of plywood.
