This may be the incorrect forum to post this, but in the past we have discussed plywood from the big box stores. I am happy to report that this weekend I bought two panels of 3/4” plywood from Home Depot with a big stamp stating that the product was from Columbia something or other, and that it was made in the USA.
You could tell, too. Looking at the edge, the plys were evenly sized and there were very few, if any, overlaps of veneers visible. I built a couple of small cabinets and nothing warped, the shelves fit in the dados, and so on. I am very happy about this development; maybe Home Depot is actually reading this.
Now if we could only get the diyNetwork to bring Amy Devers back, and stop these idiotic shows. That channel got to where it is because of us watching it and sponsoring their advertisers, and now that they are successful, they have dumbed down the whole thing. Where is the guy who used to show us tools in the afternoon without trying to make us laugh? Why do they keep repeating the same This Old House shows? Why is every single show about the “investment” in the house.
Sorry about that… I could rant for a while about this.
