Falcata plywood is a plywood made from plantation wood.
"Falcata" is a leguminous plantation tree that grows in Southeast Asia.
Because it grows very fast, the material is soft and light.
The surface is white and beautiful. It is lightweight and easy to handle, so it has become very popular as a DIY material in recent years. However, it is not strong enough to hold nails or screws, so care must be taken.
Because of the background of global restrictions on timber harvesting, its existence has been attracting attention in recent years.
Since the material is soft and relatively weak in strength, it is used as a base for furniture that does not require significant weight.
Recently, it has been devised to be mixed and laminated with hard wood veneer, and can be used as a construction base, building material base, and furniture base like lauan plywood.
