- Regarding the use of plywood in chest consturction.
Thanks to all, I love the way this group offers balanced
responses, that expand into greater discussions, far too many forums
involve only ridicule, as members are always looking to disagree, and
tell anyone who is willing to speak up, how they are wrong. Thats
just one of the aspects that makes this the best group I have written
If I build one, or a run of chests involving plywood, I would
deffinatly keep it hidden, I have used it before, but only for
bottoms, were it was dadoed in. In modern work, I never let ply edge
show, and allways hide or at least minimise end grain on solid wood,
so theres no way I would do any different in (conjecturally) period work.
plywood dating back to the egyptians, I learned something new on
that one, warrants further study, thanks
