Pine Block Boards

Plywood and Pine Block board are two distinct and separate things. The differences between these two types of engineered woods are:-

 – Difference in composition, and the way they are made.

Plywood is commonly used in the making of wooden furniture and are made from several thin sheets of individual wood veneers (layers/slices of wood). All these layers are firmly pressed and joined with each other to make a plywood sheet. In case if all the layers of wood has been obtained from a Neem tree, then it is called as Neem Plywood.

The core of block boards is made from solid blocks of Pinewood. (These blocks are rectangular elongated blocks/strips obtained from a softwood tree). All these small blocks are of almost the same size, and are arranged end to end to form the entire block board core.

– Difference in the way they are used.

While plywood is suitable for most furniture making requirements, it has a tendency to sag or bend when very lengthy pieces are used. In such cases using blackboards is preferred over using plywood.

For example, when longer pieces of wood is required in furniture such as for long tables and for benches which will have to bear some load, block boards are preferred over plywood. Other common uses of block board include making of doors, panels, and partitions.

Difference in material.

Good quality MR Grade and BWP plywood is made using hardwood veneers which are denser and heavier than softwood. Hardwood is considered to be a stronger and more durable material than softwood. An example of hardwood is Neem wood, Eucalyptus Wood or Gurjan wood.

Block boards usually have a core made of softwood blocks (for example the wood of a pine tree) sandwiched between hardwood veneers. Sometimes two veneers are used on either side to make the block board stronger. The softwood core makes the board lighter in weight, and still the use of solid wooden blocks ensures that the board is strong enough to withstand a substantial amount of load.

Pine Block Boards – A Product of House of Doors

House of Doors also manufactures Pine Block Boards. The core of these block boards is made from solid blocks of Pinewood. (These blocks are rectangular elongated blocks/strips obtained from a softwood tree). All these small blocks are of almost the same size, and are arranged end to end to form the entire block board core. Then as in the case of plywood, a top and bottom veneer (layer of wooden ply) is bonded/glued over these blocks to form the faces/surfaces. These Pine boards also come in two grades such as MR grade and BWR grade.
