Make a project that includes the use of plywood. It's just that easy!

Projects must include actual plywood. Other manufactured sheet goods such as particle board, OSB, or MDF (this article outlines the differences) may be used in addition - but these materials alone will not meet the contest requirement.

Document your project and teach us how you made it, and you could win a gift card to buy more plywood - or whatever else you want!

The Plywood Challenge is closed.

Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
