Like everyone knows plywood has a ton of glue in it so it really dulls bits quickly. So either carbide down cut bit or compression like Charles said which cuts really cleanly to, Down cut bit cuts the outside edges really good but it leaves the dust in the area. The Up cut bits take the chips out but leaves a rough edges around the cut.

HSS bits do pretty well but they will dull pretty quick with the glue in plywood hince Carbide.

-- It is always the right time, to do the right thing.
