Classique Canadian Oak

Classique Ply is a high-grade interior ply with excellent edge detail consisting of a European Poplar (Populus spp.) core and the option of American White Oak (Quercus alba), Canadian Oak (Quercus spp.) or European Birch (Betula pendula) external veneer.

Beautiful, light-weight and durable, it is a popular choice for wall linings and joinery.

Scope of Use

Good durability makes this popular for interior linings and joinery:

  • Ceiling linings
  • Tiny-house interiors
  • Horse float interiors
  • Lightweight cabinetry
  • Feature joinery
Limitations on Use
  • Not suitable for exterior use
  • Not structurally rated 
  • Classique ply is a lighter weight timber than other plywoods, the highly visual surface will harden once a good quality lacquer is applied

Plywood is a natural product that can be affected by changes in weather conditions: moisture and temperature. Increased moisture content or temperature variation may cause internal stresses causing previously flat sheets to bow. At Plymasters precautions are taken to minimise this. However, once the plywood has left the warehouse Plymasters cannot guarantee sheets to remain flat unless fastened. This is particularly important where free standing kitchen/cabinet doors are concerned.When storing panels, stack on a firm raised base with enough support to prevent sagging. Cover the pallet to protect top and edges.
