What type of plywood are you asking about?

I thought all their plywood is new. Details, need details.

Do they have it at Lowes too? I don't go near Home Depot.

I have not seen any birch ply at HD, but some Lowe's are carrying something called Appleply.
Anyone know what that is?

Agree - the last time I was @ HD looking at plywood, only the standard mediocre brand was available there; maybe a more specific link and/or a pic or two may help.

Now, this is the first time that I've heard about Appleply - image below from Their Website - comes in a wide variety of sizes & thicknesses, and also a number of hardwood veneer options; seems rather pricey but a product I could very well be using in the future - thanks for the bringing this plywood to my attention!

I buy most all my plywood at Rockler, or Woodcraft:


Baltic Birch Plywood - Rockler Woodworking Tools


Plywood - Woodcraft.com


Haven't found any voids in any of my orders, yet.

I've never seen Baltic Birch at HD, nor Appleply at Lowe's. If you have it in yours, then I'm jealous. The Lowe's in SW Florida have a product called Sandeply, which is imported from South America. It appears to have fewer voids than their Birch plywood, but the wood is very prone to chip-out. I've yet to see anything graded better than C in either HD or Lowe's hardwood plywood.
