Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is what its name describes a engineered wood product out of several layers of veneer glued together to a beam. In contrast to plywood, the layers of LVL are all in the same direction and not crossed to each other. That gives the product a higher MOE and traction. Further the layers are mostly thicker than those of Plywood.
