Fun with Plywood 2

In building the various shelving units around the casa, I neglected to point out the star of the show, being the brand of plywood.

Both the 9. ply and the 7 ply are Arauco, made in Chile. Amazing that they can build, ship, and offer it for around 35-40 bucks a 3/4” sheet. Below is a closeup photo of the 7 on top and 9 below. These are ACX grade, meaning that they have a clear face and a C grade back, with Exterior glue.

Plywood

This is far and away superior plywood for making case goods for the home remodeler. There are a couple of notable features with this plywood. One is the clear face. No knots, pitch staining, or discoloration. Two is the consistency of the plys. They are equal and have almost no voids in the sheets. Those that are there are very small.

I had to get mine at Home Depot, despite that Lowes says they carry it locally, but do not. Yes I am a Lowes shopper every time I can.
