Like Scott, I’ve found that the premium here is closer to $15 for finished versus unfinished. I’ve started rethinking my projects to use the pre-finished stuff. It requires a little planning, because glue won’t stick to the finished surfaces, but it cuts way down on my finish time (my sweety likes matte finishes, so I usually hit it lightly with 220 or 300 and add another coat, since I’ve got to finish the beauty strip edging anyway). And glue spills are really easy to clean up, at least from the plywood bits.
