About Our Plywood

Florida Southern Plywood takes great pride in all our products and services, even more so when it comes to plywood. After all, it’s in our name!

Florida Southern uses only a select few mills located throughout the world to provide a consistent and reliable product. Most of our domestic plywood’s have a fir core, which reduces the weight whilst also improving stability. Our imports, depending on the specific region of origination, will predominately have a fir or birch core.

Florida Southern Plywood stocks one of the largest selection of plywood in North East Florida and Southern Georgia; however, please don’t hesitate to give us a call if you can’t find the product you are looking for on our website!

Plywood Grades

Generally considered to be a good two sided product where both sides may be seen. Some blemishes are generally allowed on back side.

Intended for use where one side will predominantly be seen but the other side needs to be reasonably clean, the back of items in this grade are generally good material but may have staining, less that acceptable veneer splices, scratches or other blemishes. This material works well for use as shelves, drawer sides & end panels

Considered to be a good one side product where the back side will not be seen or it does not matter what is looks like. In A4, B4 or C4 the back of the piece may have open knots, filled knots, bad veneer seems or be of a different species that the front. This material will work well for drawer bottoms, covering of cabinet faces, bar backs & end panels.

When you are looking for quality wood, this is the place. They are always informative and always go out of their way to help the customer. They are more of a traditional lumbar supply so a lot of their lumber is rough dimensions. A lot more selection than the local box chains.
