Which material makes a better cabinet, Plywood or Particleboard?
Let us begin with this statement, both materials are made of wood. Particleboard is made of wood shavings held together with an adhesive and Plywood is constructed with small sheets of wood held together with an adhesive. Both are great materials for making cabinets. Moreover, there are different grades available for both. The difference is that particleboard is less likely to react to humidity as compared to plywood, and a high density particleboard is stronger than plywood making it a better choice.
