Was in the local Lowes today thinking of making a shooting board. Looking at the plywood choices they have I figured that none of the general plywoods would be suitable for a shooting board. They do have birch, not baltic birch, and luan plywood. Are either one of those suitable for shooting boards? I know baltic birch is commonly used and MDF (David Charlesworth). Any thoughts?

What a strange question… I think you can shoot any board as long as you aim carefully.
