Bamboo and jute were added to wood veneer to make reinforced plywood. Three types of material, namely bamboo strips, their woven mats, and jute cloth were placed between veneer sheets at 0/90° and 45° orientations, respectively. Using bamboo or jute in the composite was an effective reinforcement method for the flexural and shear properties. The bamboo reinforcement in the 45° orientation showed some good results in some cases. In particular, the shear rigidity was distinctly improved in this orientation. The jute cloth had good adhesion in all gluelines, but did not improve shear rigidity in the 45° orientation as much as bamboo reinforcement. Using bamboo materials in a 45° orientation as a component in plywood is advantageous as it improves the mechanical properties. This method could also be used in manufacturing other bamboo composite boards.
