Hey all,
I am looking for someone local that could help me out. I am helping a guy (possibly my first student) do some minor improving on his house and we need 3 pieces of red oak plywood that is 5” width by 8’ long. The material can be shop grade. We really only need one good face. We really don’t want to buy a full sheet of plywood for 15” worth of work. He is willing to pay for the material. Please let me know ASAP as we would like to move forward on the project this weekend.
Thanks guys.

I’m not aware of any stores who will cut up a sheet of hardwood plywood. However I have always found uses for the left overs from those kinds of projects.
Also important and will affect the price is the mill cut of the wood. Flat sawn plywood (has lots of wild grain) should be around $40 to $60 a sheet. Quarter sawn (nice straight grain) will run from $80 to $100. Maybe more down there in So. Calif. with your high sales taxes.

You might contact some cabinet shops and see if they have any cut offs they will sell.
