Therefore, in furniture building, it is very common for carpenters and interior designers to choose blockboard over plywood for furniture, which is more than 7 feet high such as wardrobe doors.

 

Here are some key features of Blockboards:

1. it is cheaper than plywood

2. They are made of softwood blocks covered with a thin layer on both sides. The most popular blockboards in India are made from pine woodblocks.

Commercial MR (moisture resistant) plywood is not waterproof but is the most common material used in such cases.


Kitchen cabinets are usually made of using BWR (Boiling water resistant) grade, which is a waterproof ply, while all other furniture, such as cabinets, TV tables, showcases, wall panels, etc. Made using commercial MR grade plywood.
