Hello all,

First post here.

I'm into a 2Pi tower build and have mixed feelings about my progress. It's going along OK but I'm disgusted with the plywood quality and price. $80/sheet and it seems like crap. Plenty of voids and the face veneer is paper thin and keeps chipping. The glue is junk. Later found its soy based. Generally, the further along I get the more annoyed I am over it.

I know I could have used MDF but I hate the stuff and I think it's harder to work with. At least with ply I can plane my cuts a little it need be. I'd like MDF if it were CNC'd and the cuts perfect.

Has anyone tried MDO. It seems like a better product than most plywood. I think the glue is bound to be superior given its made for outdoors. At one point I wanted to build a boat and in the course of research found people using it instead of marine plywood.

Anyway, just asking.
