I prefer to use solid wood to, but at times plywood is a great way to go. More stable, less expensive, easier to work with (sort of). Like all tools, it has its place in the shop as well.

Now particle board is something I avoid. If I had to use something, I would use the plywood instead of particle board, even if it costs more. I do not trust the particle board to hold up for the long term.

I expect there will be more regulations related to air quality soon. I am wondering how long it will be before we all have to have a spray booth with some air filtering to be able to finish our products. If that happens, many small businesses will fold. Reminds me, I better start checking the map for alternative locations…
