Woodbutcher wrote:Since MDF is out what do they recommend? Both my Woody builds used regular indoor 1/4" cabinet grade plywood for the exterior. The first one completed in 2006 has epoxy covering the plywood. Still looks as good as the day I made it. You may ask if they can veneer on a quality birch panel over veneer core plywood. If so also ask if the back should also be veneered to keep the panel stable. Plywood should always have an odd number of plys. My experience with having custom veneer panels laid up is they prefer to work with MDF and it was very pricey. Plus can they lay up a one piece 5X10' sheet in any thickness. This could be a spectacular project or a disaster.
