Engineered wood products like hardwood plywood continue to gain strength in the marketplace. Their stability, ease of use, and in some cases, weather resistance make them ideal for cabinetry, doors, and all manner of marine applications. J. Gibson McIlvain supplies only the finest quality 1/4, 1/2, 3/8, and 3/4″ thick veneer core, combination core, or MDF core plywood in the species and grain pattern of your choice. All of our plywood is available in multiple grades and saw faces like plain sliced, rotary cut, quartersawn, or sequence matched and numbered. We even offer some sheets that are pre-finished on 1 or 2 faces.
J. Gibson McIlvain is also an exclusive North American distributor of Bruynzeel Marine Grade Plywood (view spec sheet) which is a top of the line, BS1088 panel perfect for boat building. We carry both Okoume and Sapele marine grade plywood. We carry also decorative Teak and Holly marine panels and can lay up custom marine panels based on our Bruynzeel platforms using a face veneer of your choice.
We buy our plywood with the same strict quality standards we use for our solid wood lumber so you can expect that even our B and C grade faces will be beautiful. The real advantage to our customers is that we supply both solid wood and plywood so when placing an order for one or the other we can easily add sheets of plywood to the truck already scheduled to deliver to your job site.
Okoume and Douglas Fir plywood are rated as marine grade and are sold to the nautical industry for a variety of applications, including, among other, fiberglass forms, cabinetry, and utility uses on board fishing vessels.
We carry a full spectrum of marine grade plywood, which includes a full spectrum of qualities, from utility species to top-of-the-line Bruynzeel BS 1088 Okoume Gaboon plywood.

Did You Know?
Although veneer core is more traditional, MDF (medium density fiberboard) core plywood is quickly gaining popularity because of its superior flatness, stability, and great holding power with screws and nails.
Not convinced? Try combination core for the best of both worlds with solid wood holding power and MDF flatness and stability.
