Scarf Joined Plywood Panels
Our Scarf Joined Plywood Panels are manufactured using several different plywood species which makes them suitable for a wide range of design applications. Scarf-joining is a process where a large ‘scarf’ is machined on to the edge of a sheet of plywood at a ratio of 8:1 – which means the scarf is eight times longer than the thickness of the plywood sheet. They are glued together using heat and pressure and can be joined either end-on-end or side-on-side to create a large structurally sound panel, wth a thickness of between 6–18mm. The panels are always made-to-order, so please allow a lead time of approximately 10 working days.
The one-piece jumbo Scarf Joined Plywood Panels are ideal for use in caravan, bus, train and RV flooring. They are fast and easy to install, eliminate movement between panels and reduce the overall weight, which allows for innovative designs. They can also be used for garage tilt doors using Kokoda Hardwood for surfaces that require painting or Maxi Birch for a superior stained finished.
In Australia, Jumbo Plywood or oversized plywood typically refers to any plywood sheet size that is larger than 2440mm x 1220mm.

Working with Jumbo Plywood allows for longer spans and fewer joins, creating a seamless finish. This gives designers a bigger scope to create striking wall and ceiling designs. The larger panels mean scarfing is not required to achieve design specifications for 3m sheets and this can also reduce labour as less sheets need to be installed.

As the leading supplier of marine plywood in Melbourne, we take pride in the high-quality of our product.

Made from untreated tropical hardwood veneers, it is manufactured with the highest face quality on two sides. Veneers are carefully selected to be free from defects and peeler checks and for their high mechanical strength and suitability for permanent bonding. The quality-controlled glue line is permanent and maintains its strength and durability, even under the most exposed conditions during the lifetime of the boat. This is achieved through phenol formaldehyde resin bonds applied under controlled heat and pressure in a hot press, which has been proved over 50 years of laboratory testing to perform under extreme conditions without deterioration.
