Can you screw into end grain of plywood?
Basically because you cannot successfully use end grain of ply to screw into. It has no “bite” or “body” to bite into. A simple solution is the wood dowel trick. You line up where screws will be placed then drill vertically down through the ply suitable holes to glue in wood dowels.
What kind of plywood is used for entertainment center?
When I think of entertainment center, I think of a piece of furniture. As for the type of wood, I would stick with either oak, maple, or cherry plywood for the carcass and solid oak, maple, or cherry for the face frames if you’re staining. Keep in mind this will substantially increase the cost.

What can I put under my wall mounted TV?
If you don’t want to go all in with a piece of furniture but still want something beneath (or around) TV, floating shelves are a great option. They help pull your TV into the overall design of the room – helping eliminate the “black box effect,” and they provide a lot of flexibility as well.
