The plywood is thin, so i had to use quite a number of supports to hold the thin strips after it was cut. apparently the accuracy of the cuts are not that important. Plywood usually comes in 8 foot long sheets. most of the jupiter point designs use panels that are longer than 8 feet. as a result, you will often need to make longer. A/b meranti mahogany face & core veneers. 1.3 mm face veneers before sanding. equal or nearly equal laminations. water and boil proof glue. excellent structural plywood..
