Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) panels made from eucalyptus (Eucalyptus camaldulensis Dehn.) and beech (Fagus orientalis Lipsky.) veneers were tested for physical and mechanical strength properties in this study. Urea formaldehyde (UF) and Polyvinyl acetate (PVA) adhesives were used for eucalyptus LVL panels and UF adhesive for beech LVL panels. The effect of veneer wood species on some physical and mechanical properties was found statistically significant. Also, different glue species caused the differences in strength properties of LVL panels.
