As we all know, plywood rated as 3/4” thick is only 23/32” and all the other thicknesses are 1/32” less than nominal. According to the American Plywood Association (APA), 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4 and 1” is still listed as being available along with the 1/32 undersize product. My question is; where do you find the full nominal size panel? The big box stores don’t carry it and I haven’t found a lumber yard that does.

In my area (Los Angeles) there are many plywood dealers that
sell to industry. I’ve found them easy and pleasant to deal
with on a walk-in basis. There may be one near you which
you don’t know about. I’ve found a lot of interesting
specialized material suppliers perusing the B2B yellow pages
at the public library.
