I'm in Rugby and struggling with most timber yards not being "open" to find a few sheets of BB grade ply.

 

I just want a few sheets that I can fit in my car within a reasonable collection distance of CV21.

 

I tried the best independent according to their blurb and despite a load of flannel would not be prepared "at this time" to sell sheets not on a pallet!

You mentioned that you want the edges of the ply to be visible. I like that style a lot.

I follow Scott Brown on YooChube - he uses a good deal of ply.  Here's a list of all the videos he's made about using ply.  He goes into detail about how to line up the edges of the boards. As usual, the Devil ( or God) is in the detail.

There's some nice stuff. I really like the edge highlight - SWMBO doesn't .

 

Sum ya win, sum ya lose.

We recently had a bench made in birch ply.  I like the look of the lamination.
