Hi, is there any experience to build the Tiki 21 beams with plywood. in the plan from J.Wharram is only one piece from the Beams made from plywood. I want to build the hole beam with plywood.

Is there somebody with experience to build the beams in this way. Thanks for answers.

Greeting Michael

Hi Michale, Plywood has a lower strenght than the hardwood normaly used in beams, so you should increase the thickness where you change hardwood with plywood, this thickness increase shoud be proportional to the strenght ratio of hardwood/plywood. Thats my opinion. Good luck!
