Hardwood Plywood Exterior Full Sheets and Cut to Size

Here at Ply Direct, we stock a vast range of plywood suitable for private and commercial customers and their projects.

Plywood is a highly versatile material used in many applications. However, choosing the correct plywood for your chosen application is essential. Marine ply and exterior plywood are both suitable for external use, but each is suited to different projects.

What is Exterior Hardwood Plywood?

Exterior hardwood plywood is used for a wide range of applications. This exterior plywood can be made from either hardwood or softwood core and has a face and back made from hardwood veneers. Exterior hardwood is constructed from glued layers of plywood, with each layer rotated alternatively in a process called cross-lamination. Cross-lamination means that the grain is at different angles, which gives the plywood extra strength.

Hardwood Plywood Full Sheet and Cut to Size

Exterior plywood can be made from a range of different woods, including birch plywood. We supply exterior plywood either as a full sheet or cut to size, so you can pick the option that best suits your needs.

Key Features of Hardwood Plywood Sheets

Here are some of the main reasons plywood, such as birch plywood, is such a popular choice:

Moisture resistance

One of the most useful properties of exterior plywood is that it is moisture resistant which prevents warping and splitting.


The construction of exterior plywood layered with adhesives improves strength and stability, making it an excellent choice for use by furniture manufacturers.

Lower cost

As one of the most commonly used categories of engineered wood products, plywood is a low price. But, plywood offers some additional benefits over comparable materials, such as MDF. Plywood usually offers better water resistance than MDF, and as plywood has a grain, it can be stained.

Exterior hardwood can be used to construct outdoor furniture

Uses of Hardwood Exterior Plywood Sheets

Exterior plywood sheets can be used for many projects.


Using exterior plywood, such as birch plywood cut to size, is an excellent material for furniture production. As cut plywood is available at better prices than solid wood, it also makes a more economical choice. You can create a wide range of furniture items from exterior plywood when it is cut to size. Benches, outside seating, and tables can all be made from exterior plywood and then primed and stained in a colour of your choice.

Decorative Millwork

Exterior plywood can be used for many uses around the house, especially decorative millwork for doors, floors, panels for walls, and sashes. Sanding and smoothing the plywood will provide you with the ideal surface to prime and paint a colour of your choice for a decorative finish.
