When you see "wood seats" you should ask yourself: Is this
solid wood or plywood? A plywood seat is constructed of thin
layers of wood to make a seat that looks “solid”. How can this
The solid wood seats on the other hand are comprised solely
of solid wood.
Below, you'll find the differences between the two types of
seats. You can rest assured that the solid wood seats are much
superior than the plywood seats:

the grain; the plywood seats will have a flat look.
- Solid wood seats are thicker then plywood.
- Plywood seats tend to crack over time, this will not happen
with solid wood seats. They will serve you longer and your odds
of changing seats every year decreases majorly.

Our solid wood seats not only
look better but have many advantages over the competition’s
Our seats are thicker and
made of natural solid wood rather than 5-8 thin sheets of
plywood glued together in layers.
Solid wood allows wood stain
to penetrate deep inside to reduce the appearance of scratches
and dents. The glue used in plywood prohibits stain to absorb
past the first layer. As a result, plywood seats are more prone
to show scratches and dents.
