Veneer core plywood cabinets

dazedandconfusedFebruary 6, 2013

Hi,

A cabinet maker we are considering using to build our kitchen cabinets said he uses veneer core plywood (3/4") to make the boxes. Is this a good thing? I'm wondering if high end cabinet manufacturers use this type of plywood as well...

Thanks.

Typically it might be referred to as 'furniture grade' plywood. 3/4" is likely overkill for plywood carcasses. Particle board is usually 3/4, and I think plywood 5/8 (I'm pretty sure my custom plywood cabinets are 5/8 furniture grade plywood).

Real birch veneer - nothing beats it for looks and durability.

I am a cabinet maker and I believe very much in 3/4 plywood for the boxes. It is our standard that we won't deviate from..that is how much we think of it.

The cabinet maker was very specific about the type of plywood he uses so I just wanted to find out more about it. Thank you for your responses, I really appreciate it.

I posted my proposed layout on another thread ( which I linked below). If anyone is willing to take a stab at helping me with layout I would be grateful. I took into consideration what some of the posters suggested and posted an updated layout on the same post with more measurements and information.

Thanks and have a wonderful day.
