A board or other laminate having one or more
layers oriented at right angles to other layers
with respect to the grain direction of the layers.
Alternating grain directions of the laminate
outward from the center layer is generally
assumed. The built-up boards used in the binding
of very large books are frequently cross laminated
to provide additional strength and also to reduce
the possibility of warping. See also: PARALLEL LAMINATED .
