Valued for its virtually solid hardwood core and the attractive edge appearance of thin, uniform innerplies, ApplePly has won a following from architects and architectural woodworkers, furniture and fixture designers, case good manufacturers and professional and amateur woodworkers alike. Appleply's attractive edge has been a featured design element in interior fit outs of major retailers including GAP, Nike, Body Shop and Children's Place. It has been selected for furniture design classes at The Rhode Island School of Design, Savannah College of Art and Design and Appalachian State University, and found applications as diverse as drawer sides and telescopes.
ApplePly is constructed from 1/16" Birch innerplies using a two-step lamination process, and no added urea-formaldehyde adhesive. Innerplies are first assembled into a core blank and size sanded to a metered tolerance before being overlaid with selected face and back veneers. This process insures a solid, smooth and flat product and eliminates telegraphing of imperfections in the core. The all hardwood construction machines beautifully without tearout or burn. Because of its machinability, ApplePly is often substituted for solid wood.
Typically supplied with a Maple face veneer, ApplePly is also available with virtually any specie and grade of commercial veneer. Factory applied ultraviolet cured finishes are also an option. ApplePly is California Air Resources Board certified, no added urea-formaldehyde and available as Forest Stewardship Council certified.
