Unlike Solid Wood, Engineered wood is a more complex product that consists of several layers. The outer layer is a hardwood veneer made of thin slice of wood whereas the inner layers are made of plywood. The grain of each layer runs in perpendicular direction thereby increasing its stability. This reduces the chances of the wood expanding and contracting unlike solid wood during fluctuations in the humidity and temperature.
