I bought 1/2" and 3/4" sheets from the same supplier and the 1/2 was exact but the 3/4 was undersized.

I'll check the thickness....it's part of applied drawer front fixit thread that I posted recently. It's at my niece's house and I didn't get a chance to take accurate measurements. I'm trying to get all the supplies together before I trek back there to make the repair. They aren't too handy and I don't really trust them to take the measurements for me......that's why I got the call to come fix it. The cabinets seem to be fairly high end and I'm assuming they used BB ply based on the fact that the ply drawer boxes have box joint corners.

Right you are. Guess I'll just have to wait until I get there. They are not too close to hardware or Big Box stores so I was trying to bring everything I will need with me. But, as you probably know you bring everything except what you actually need and have to waste time going out to buy the right stuff.
