I think you were onto something way back when, we just didn't know it then.
Do you have a link to your original post?

In fact, all I could find were sheets of 3/4" exterior grade. Is it my imagination, or is the exterior grade a LOT heavier (not to mention more expensive!!! )than other plywoods of the same size? Sure as heck feels like it. I was looking for 1/4" sheets, but couldn't find anybody that carried it, nor would be able to order it, so wound up with the 3/4". All of which caused a rapid re-evaluation of exterior and interior skinning.
For those of you in the Dallas / Fort Worth area, there's a great place in Fort Worth for all kinds of hardwood and softwood plywood, and bending luan and bending birch. Plywood Company of Fort Worth. http://www.plywoodcompany.com/application/home/main.aspx Their prices are posted on their website, and the guys in the warehouse are awesome about going through an entire stack of whatever wood you need, so you can pick which sheets you want. When they found out I was building a TD, they made me promise to bring it up there when it was done so they could see it.
