Now, I like this plywood, but like everything else, their description is some what erroneous. They really do not have a real description of this on their website and the employees only know what they…Continue

"It's not just the big box stores. Even cabinet grade domestic sheets are narrow. I've purchased a new dado stack and new router bits specifically for plywood because, like you've observed, 1/4" is actually 3/16", 1/2"…"
