something is amiss here ~ ~ ~
if you are part of a construction business and you plan to sell as well as use our own plywoods
if you have to ask what wood to use for a project, something just doesn’t sound right about that.
many members here work with plywood daily. I don’t think any of them ever think about making
their own 4×8 sheets. wow – that would be a monumental undertaking for anyone.

not just the bandsaw – but – how will you compress it during the glue up ??
go to BORG and buy some door skins – and glue them together just for practice.
the different layers of plywood come from all over the world, so they could be anything.
the best wood for the internal plys is Grade 2 Alder.

please keep us in the loop as to your progress.
