Wholesale in my area $65 for a cabinet grade but depending on what your building you might get by with shop grade $45-$50. Stay away for import ply.

Thanks Skarp,seems every time you buy something it has gone up alot.Looking at this 9 ply (I think) you dont see any voids. I know they can be inside—would you take a chance on it?

I’ve found that the $50 plywood isn’t that great. The surface layer is very thin and has a tendency to flake. If you want something high quality, don’t go with the cheaper stuff (unless the high quality stuff is on sale).

I buy all my plywood at Pekin Hardwood in Pekin Illinios. 3/4 Red Oak MDF A2 = $55.04, 3/4 Red Oak Rotary Cut A2 = $65.54. 3/4 Red Oak Plain Sliced A2 = $75.73. If you buy 25 sheets the price goes down about $3.00 a sheet. If anyone is near Pekin they should stop and see their hardwood room and tool show room.

God Bless
