The term plywood refers to a type of structural material that is composed of multiple layers (or plies) of wood veneer that are stuck together in such a way as to ensure that the wood grain of the adjoining layers are at right angles to each other, thus making the resulting material stronger and more resistant to warping or other deformities.
