T-111

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mark,

*True* T1-11 is 5/8 inches thick and the grooves are 1/4-inch deep, leaving 
you with effectively a 3/8-inch panel that has good face material on only one 
side.  Where does most of plywood's strength come from? (Rhetorical 
question.)  You make the call!
