I have cut out a 48×31 inch section of 3/4 inch ply. As far as I can tell, it has a warp side to side, with the high point in the midddle of the 48 inch dimension, 3/16 inch at the middle in back, 1/8 inch in front.
One out of the other three 4’x4’ sections has only a 1/16” warp prior to cutting, pretty negligable I would think. I really don’t have access to any better grade of plywood that I know of in this area.
I think I should cut the base board out of the best piece, and just use the previous piece I already cut out for my computer cart which will involve much smaller pieces. All my plywood warps, but the best one has acceptable warp, I would think. Does it seem reasonable to use the piece with 1/16” warp, I think that will mostly disappear with the fence and the cut down the middle.
I want to buy a router that will end up in my main router table eventually, probably part of the TS cabinet. What is the current thoughts on this issue. I would like to use it for this project, probably free hand against a clamped on fence, and would probably order it while I am in Hawaii to arrive after I get home. This is not a new question, I know, but as time passes, there are new products. Saw a video of a new Hitachi, but I am not sure it is available yet. I would like it to use either 1/4 or 1/2 inch bits. I would think this should be a professional grade router. My old Skil router still works well but of course is not a plunge router.
