Plywood is a sheet material manufactured from thin layers or "plies" of wood veneer that are glued together with adjacent layers having their wood grain rotated up to 90 degrees to one another. It is a versatile material suitable for a variety of applications. Exterior glued plywood, for example, can be used outdoors to sheathe exterior walls, while hardwood plywood is handy for decorative paneling and furniture. Due to its flexible structure, plywood is also widely used to create curved surfaces. Skateboard ramps, for instance, often utilize plywood as the top smooth surface over bent curves to simulate the rise and fall of ocean waves.
