Wood has a tendency of splitting when nailled at the edges due to the arrangement of its grains/fibers. Plywood, made of thin sheets of wood glued together with each sheets' grain at 90° to the adjacent sheet, would less likely split when nailed at the edge. The cross-graining increases the strength of the whole sheet, and also reduces overall shrinkage or expansion. Plywood can be used both inddors and outdoors. Outdoor use plywood would uses a water resistant glue to prevent delamination (the layering). When working with plywood, several factors should be taken into consideration including location, thickness of plywood and flexibility.
