Layers of wood that are glued or fastened together. Strictly speaking, plywood is made from laminated veneers, but the term is usually used to describe furniture components made from relatively thick plies of wood that are glued together with the grain of each piece facing in the same direction.
Layers of veneer or lumber bonded with an adhesive so that the grain of all layers is essentially parallel. Contrasted to plywood in which the adjacent layers are usually at right angles to one another.
two or more sheets of glass with one or move viscous plastic layers â€œsandwichedâ€ between the glass panes. W ill only crack upon significant impact, and glass will continue to hold together after being broken
when used to describe an acoustic guitar, refers to the use of thin plies of wood glued together to form a top, back, and/or sides (as opposed to "solid-wood"); frequently used on less-expensive guitars (all full-size Taylors are solid-wood guitars).
The backs, sides and even tops of some instruments can be made from several pieces of wood which have been laminated to form one piece, usually at the determent of it's sound. (Especially if it's the top that's laminated.) A neck can also be made from more than one piece of wood to produce a decorative center stripe.
Laminating leather to other materials is a means of creating a product that has unique properties. Selecting different laminates with their own special properties can vary the properties. E.g. Elastic, or fire resistant materials.
