Bustedknuckle, re-read….
I kinda said when it’s a bad thing to use on 1 and 2. Like for instance making a side of a large barister’s desk out of plywood. it will bow, and it will also not have the horizontal suppor strength of solid wood. If you veneer front edges of everything, and make drawer fronts and pieces that will move constantly out of plywood, then well it’s gonna fail, period. Now making panels out of plywood fine. but small dividers and sides of boxes… eh bad idea. I also build furniture and cabinets, so I can tell you I use a lot of plywood, however, there are times to NOT use plywood and veneer. You might be saving a little sanding time, but after a few years it will look like crap.
