We have used pre finished for the last 2 years. No way would I not use pre finished. Of course this type of ply is only applicable for custom cabinetry and maybe dressers. We use 2 sided pre finish. Most cabinetry only needs 1 good side, while things like shelves need 2 good sides. Just be mindful and focused when using the ply and you will do great.

And to answer your question, the glue will dry on the surface of prefinished, but will easily peel right off after dried.

Oh yeah, quick story. A year ago at a new construction home, the plumber had a mishap and water lines flooded the cabinets. I was present when the water line soaked our cabinets. All the water just puddles up as it could not penetrate the finish. The finish from the factory is very even, consistent and durable.
