SO much stuff to learn.
I love your guys beyond measure for helping me learn.
I always thought ply was ply. I saw birch for the first time on my last visit to HD, and thought "I'mma try that when the table saw is assembled for my jigs."
Now I know better, thank you. Bamboo is a VERY tough grass, and I can easily see it shredding all to heck as a ply layer. Tsk.
Thanks to you guys and gals, I have also found local lumber places, and now know what to look for.
It's hard enough learning just the basics of grains, and blades, and joinery (Thanks, Teig Frid), now I've learned how to better inspect plywood before buying.
Heaven help you all. I am a wordy
thing, long in love with the how and why behind almost everything...
