Okume plywood in Cali. found some 1/2in. for$16

I locked this discussion. As usual, threads about plywood get very long, become difficult to search and anyway, most of it has been said before.<BR>Feel free to start another thread, I will clean up this one.<BR>Before posting, please read our HowTos´ about plywood.
