Thanks, rhett!

Also wanted to mention to Greg that all plywood is not the same, there may be other differences between the unfinished and finished that he’s looking at: count plies, look at the edges to see what kinds of voids you’re dealing with, ask if the finished uses formaldehyde free glues, and so forth.

Make your decisions at whatever price point works, but there’s a reason I sometimes pay over $120 a sheet for “maple veneer plywood”, and sometimes I pay $40.
