The beauty of pine plywoods is that they can be shaped into any shape you want, and that means you can design it to fit your space, like a traditional wood deck.
In fact, you can make your own wooden house with these pine ply wood, or you can purchase them from local builders who specialize in these materials.
This tutorial will show you how to make a pine ply house.
What you’ll need 1 1/2- to 2-foot-long (0.5- to 1.5m-wide) plywood blocks 2 to 3-inch (6 to 9cm-deep) thick (or 1 to 2.5 cm-deep if you want more depth) 1 1.25- to 3.25m (3 to 6ft) wide (or 3 to 10ft) long (or 2 to 4m-long if you don’t want to spend more) pine boards for flooring and trim 2 to 6-foot (1.8- to 4ft) deep (or 4 to 10m-deep for more depth).
How to make your first pine ply flooring: Remove the top of the plywood from the bottom and place it on a square or rectangular area of the floor.
Set it aside for a few days to dry.
Remove the outer side of the board, and place the inner side on the ply.
You can either cut the ply to shape, or simply lay it flat.
Cut the inner layer, and lay it on top of your plywood.
This layer is where the flooring will rest.
Lay the outer layer on top, and the inner piece on top.
The outer layer should be 1/4- to ½-inch thick (3/8 to 1/8cm- thick).
To make the inner board, use a 1- to 6/8-inch-thick (1- to 5/8 cm-thicker) ply.
The inner board will be 2- to 10-inches (5-to 15cm-long) thick.
Lay a piece of 2-inch plywood on top and place a strip of 3/8 -inch (1cm) pine board over it.
Place the inner ply board over the strip, and attach the inner strip to the outer strip using a ¼-inch nail.
Cut a 1/3- to 7/8 inch (3mm to 2mm) strip of the outer ply board.
Lay 2- or 3-by-3-inch or 1-by 1-inch square of 3- or 1.8m (6ft) ply on top with the inner top, with the outer top on the outer bottom.
Cut and place strips of 2 or 3 by 3 or 1 by 1.4m (8.4ft) pine, then attach the top layer with a ¾-inch nails.
Place a strip 3 by 1 by 3 (4 by 4 by 3cm) long on top to give the finished plywood flooring.
The first step is to trim the ply into the shape you need.
Lay your ply board flat and then, using your nails, trim it into a rectangle.
Lay 3 strips of plywood next to each other, and then lay another 2 strips of 3 by 4 or 1 1 by 4m (9.6ft by 6ft by 5ft) in front of each other.
Use your nails to attach the outer strips to the top and the two strips on the sides of the next strip.
Lay another strip of 2 by 4 (4-by 4 by 2cm) on top in front and one strip on the bottom, then repeat.
Repeat for the remaining strips of wood.
Cut out the corners and use your nails and a utility knife to cut the pieces into pieces.
The plywood is ready to be installed in the new floor.
Make sure to use some of the extra space for trimming the edges.
How to trim pine boards into the shapes you need: Take the outer edge of the pine board and mark it with a sharp knife, like this: Take your drill press and grind down the outer end of the boards until they are the desired shape.
Mark the inner and outer edges with a ruler, like so: Next, use your nail to attach two strips of pine to each side of a strip you cut.
Lay this strip on top the outer board, then take your drill again and grind the outer edges down until the strips are the shape of your desired pine board.
Cut your ply to length using a ruler.
Lay 1 by 2 by 3 by 2m (7 by 6 by 4.5cm) of the top half of the first strip of pine onto the inner edge of your pine board, leaving a 1.75- by 1 inch (2.25 by 1cm) space between the two boards.
Cut away a 1 by ½- inch (1mm) or 1 inch by 3.5 by 3
