This work evaluates the bonding quality in solid wood of juvenile (11 years) E. nitens. Edge-glued panels were manufactured and bonded with PVA (Polyvinyl acetate). The mechanical properties of the panels were determined and compared with those of mature (25 years) P. radiata panels. Shear strength values in E. nitens panels were found to be 35% higher than P. radiata panels according to British Standard EN 204-205 on non-structural adhesives for wood joining. Juvenile E. nitens wood venners were used to manufacture exterior -grade plywood panels. Laboratory results demonstrated that E. nitens plywood satisfies all the British Standard Institution requirements for exterior use.
