One way to get some plywood
I'm rich! I have a dozen sheets of 1/2" and about the same 3/4",
different grades and a couple of oak and birch.

You have inventory. Maybe you'll be rich after you sell it.

Let us know.

Oddly, I have really only seen a modest price increase in "some"
plywoods.** MDO is still the same as it was 2 years ago and it is a
premium grade resin veneer ply. 1/2 5x5 Baltic Birch, still the same,
paint grade 1/4" birch and maple still the same.

It's construction material that has gone up/gotten scarce mostly...

Just looking at the "local" (nearest is 65 mi away) HD, they have
limited supplies in stock (typically 50 sheets, a couple products with
as much as 100) and are purchase limits on orders. 3/4" sheathing is
$65/sheet, +/-.

Closer to $100 here.


At least 20% of that would be exchange rate...interestingly enough, it
appears HD has nationwide pricing almost if not identically the same. I
just looked at a couple LA County stores figuring they would be much
higher -- but not.
