Topic tags/keywords: pressure treated plywood

For permit reasons, the company that built my garage about 8 years ago had to use 1/2” pressure treated plywood as sheathing. They left a bunch of scraps behind for me to use.

I’ve since been using it as shelves on my old workbench which I recently took apart while redoing my shop. Now I want to use it to make the Woodsmith Shop Roll Around Shop Stool (PDF of plans).

It requires that the sides and rails be made of laminated 1/2” ply. Will gluing up the PT ply last? Or is there an issue with the chemical used for treating plywood that would affect the bonding of the glue?

I’ve glued up PT ply before and it held fine.
