Plywood used in kitchen and cabinetry doors creates a visually appealing finish, but can present problems due to the very nature of plywood.  Changes in temperature and humidity can cause plywood used in free standing doors to warp, even when using the high quality plywood manufactured at Austral Plywoods.

An excellent alternative to regular plywood is the AUSTRAL DOOR PANEL, a panel specifically designed for free standing cabinetry doors that aims to minimise the possibility of warping.  The AUSTRAL DOOR PANEL is a Hoop Pine veneered MDF board, enhancing flatness yet retaining the beautiful Hoop Pine look and feel.  For projects requiring the appearance of a full plywood panel, Austral Multiply 2mm edging is also available, making the panel indistinguishable from a regular plywood board.

Therefore when specifying free standing cabinetry doors, Austral Plywoods recommends the AUSTRAL DOOR PANEL for both premium appearance and maximum utility.

Important - Before using oil based coatings & stains, ensure that they are compatible with Hoop Pine plywood.  Although we do recommend water based finishes, stains from Livos Australia have been tested and approved by Austral Plywoods as being suitable for use with Hoop Pine plywood.  Other oil based coatings are not recommended on plywood where the finished job will be subject to close scrutiny. Other oil based coatings tend to penetrate the face veneer of the plywood and strongly highlight the natural figure in the timber, darkening it considerably. In many applications this may not be desirable. Other oil based stains also tend to swell the grain of the surface veneer, again potentially disfiguring the plywood.
