Plywood Type for Wardrobes in India
Wardrobes in India are considered very important. For some it is a status symbol for some it is just a piece of furniture. We generally use two types of wood for our Kitchen cabinets and wardrobes.
The two types of wood are
- Hardwood Plywood
For kitchen cabinets we use BWR(Boiling water resistant) grade plywood and for wardrobes we use MR(moisture resistant) grade plywood. Let us take a tour and check out which would be the best plywood for making wardrobes.
Before we do that, there is an important point that needs checking. The point is:
Plywood suiting the height of the wardrobe?
Plywood should not be used when exceeding the height og 6 feet because they have such nature that they bend in the middle. Most important thing to consider.Always prefer Block board if you have very high wardrob making plan.
Blockboards are not considered as strong as hardwood plywood, but when it comes to strength comparison plywood is the best. Despite having such strength plywood bend so it doesn’t serve you with the cost. Better make plans earlier and go with Block boards. Block boards when compared to hardwood plywood have lesser tendency to bend in the middle. So while furniture is taken care, it becomes a common point for wood workers to choose block board over plywood for lengthy wooden planks for wardrobe doors.
points to be noted about Blockboards
1. Blockboard is cheap when compared to plywood
2. Blockboard is made from chunks of softwood on which, a thin layer of ply is there on either side. Pine wood block are used in making the famous block board in India.
3. Compared to playwood, block board aave a lesser tendency to bend in the middle of a big wooden plank of wood.
to choose plywood for wardrobes?
