Lauan lumber is a plywood made by using a thick piece of falcata wood as the core material, and then attaching Lauan veneer on both sides.
The surface is covered with lauan veneer, and falcata wood is used as the core material to gain thickness.
Falcata is used as the core material, and inexpensive lauan is used for the surface, making it the least expensive plywood currently available with a thickness of 15mm or more.
It is lighter in weight than regular plywood, which is made of laminated veneers.
Thicknesses range from 12 to 30 mm.
Since it is made for core and core material, there are traces of putty repair on the surface. It is not often used as a surface material because of its uneven color depending on the lot.
Because it is lightweight and inexpensive for its thickness, it is most commonly used as a core material for furniture.
It is used as a core material for all kinds of furniture by attaching a decorative plywood or melamine veneer on top.
However, due to its light weight, care should be taken when using it in places where loads are applied.
