+1 check quality of plywood, and/or try some other plywood

Can get cheap 4×8 BB plywood locally, and use it only for shop stuff due tear out issues. The top layer of veneer has crazy amounts of tear out, even when compared to cheap cdx pine plywood from BORG. Have to use brad point bits for holes, unless I want the hole to look my dog chewed it out.
If I need decent finish, have to buy Russian made BB plywood in 5×5 sheets, or use better quality hardwood veneer panels.
