Laminated wood

An assembly of pieces of wood with the fibers or grain in each piece parallel to the fibers of the other pieces. The wood is built up in plies or laminations and joined with glue or mechanical fasteners. They are held together under pressure until the glue sets.

Laminated Wood


a wood material in the form of sheets made from edgings and faced with veneer strips on both sides. The edging thus serves as the base and the veneer as the facing layer. Edgings for individual sheets are produced from lumber from a specific species of tree, usually softwoods, the softer hardwoods, or birch. The thickness of the edgings is 1.5 times greater than the width. In order to improve the appearance, one or two layers of planed veneer may also be attached with glue, and the surface of the sheets may be polished. Sheets of laminated wood are up to 2.5 m long, up to 1.5 m wide, and 30 mm or more thick. The ultimate strength of a laminated-wood sheet under static bending varies from 6 to 25 meganewtons per m2, and the moisture content is less than 10 percent. Laminated wood is widely used in the furniture industry, in the manufacture of railroad cars, and in construction.
