Plywood Sizes and Thicknesses

Plywood is manufactured in a set of standard thicknesses and sizes. For any furniture work, your carpenter or contractor will tell you the thickness of plywood needed and the size. For applications that require heavy load bearing or higher strength like bed bases, dining table tops or wardrobe doors, generally thicker plywood like 12, 18 mm or 19 mm is used, for most of the other cases, thinner plywood like 4 mm, 6 mm, 8  or 9 mm generally suffice. You must be careful in selecting the appropriate thickness of plywood while making your furniture. 

Plywood sheets are available in common sizes of 8 feet x 4 feet, 8 feet x 3 feet, 7 feet x 4 feet, 7 feet x 3 feet, 6 feet x 4 feet and 6 feet x 3 feet size. Out of these, the size 8 feet x 4 feet is the most universally used and sold size, while other sizes are less commonly available in the market. Very rarely would you get plywood in exact cut sizes, most of the times, you would buy plywood available in standard sizes and the carpenter or contractor would cut per your requirement. The choice of plywood sheet size is generally governed by the need to minimize wastage.
