History of Plywood

When was plywood invented?
Plywood is considered a modern material, but it has a history that goes back to ancient times. It is a versatile wood product that is preferred for its strength, non-bending elements, affordability, and flexibility. This material is a material formed by the technique of gluing coatings together, which has been dec since 2600 BC and is common among the Egyptians. 
In the 1850s, plywood entered the industrial scale. This wood was made of decorative hardwood in the early modern period, especially in the manufacture of furniture products such as chests, doors, and cabinets. The construction of plywood from softwood species appeared on the scene in the 20. Century.

Who invented plywood?

The material is known today as plywood was invented when Samuel Bentham, an English mechanical engineer, filed a patent application in 1797, which he described as the concept of laminating coating layers by gluing them together to form a thick layer. 
After 50 years, Immanuel Nobel, a Swedish engineer, and architect discovered that gluing together several thin layers of wood will make the parts stronger. So, to support easel paintings, plywood began to be used, which replaced the traditional cardboard or canvas.
