Premium Quality Hardwood Plywood

Why Used

ApplePly® is specified for its attractive edge, high strength and solid hardwood core.

Where Used

ApplePly is widely used in retail fixtures, contemporary furniture and architectural interiors, where its attractive edge is incorporated as a design element. It is also widely used to make woodworking jigs, drawer sides,
puzzles and toys. Because it is virtually void free and constructed from hardwoods, ApplePly machines like solid wood.


ApplePly is available in 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 1", 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" thicknessand 48-1/2" x 96-1/2" panels. In addition, 3/4" panels are available in 48-1/2" x 120-1/2".


All domestic and most imported face and back veneers are available in ApplePly, though it is commonly stocked in Maple. All States' NOVA UV cured coatings can be applied to ApplePly panels, and custom component machining is also available with some minimum quantities. ApplePly is made with soy and phenolic adhesives.


Unless otherwise specified, ApplePly is constructed without the use of urea-formaldehyde adhesives. It exceeds CARB 93120.12 and qualifies for LEED IEQ Credit 4.4 for Low Emitting Materials. Similarly, ApplePly is typically constructed from FSC Certified inner plies, but you must specify FSC Certified material to receive proper documentation. Birch inner plies are imported from Poland or Russia and the product is manufactured in Eugene, Oregon.
