    Anything wrong with this picture?

    I just caught this picture on a news site -

    I certainly hope the gentleman is looking through the scrap/seconds bin! But I'm going to guess not. I suspect neither he nor the photographer noticed anything wrong.

    Nope ... nothing wrong .... that's a special new product for hurricane prone areas. The plywood is convex on purpose. You put the convex side out facing the wind and the stronger the wind, the tighter the wood gets in the frame as it pushes in and straightens.




    .... and that's my story and I'm stickin' to it .

    Looks like standard BORG ply to me. What's the problem? Oh, you wanted to build something? I thought you were looking for a surfboard big enough for the whole family to surf out the storm.

    It is obvious that the guy has curved windows.

    I thought Robert returned some of his plywood, maybe a few practice sheets

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    I was thinkin' skateboard ramp, but since there's a storm coming, maybe he's building a large airfoil (spoiler) to put on the roof and help hold the house down when the winds come. He's also thinkin' of putting wheelie bars on all the lawn furniture.

    Wes, I'll suspect he knows it's messed up plywood, and he's checking through the stack in hopes of finding something that has a chance of working. I don't envy his position. I'm sure it's tough to find decent materials in some places during hurricane season.

    You guys are so off ...

    It's obvious that builders have finally accepted that the world is round. It took a while!!!

    Most definitely!

    Four sheets are bent one way and the other four
    are bent the other way!

    Any fool can tell ya , one should, always buy plywood all
    bent the in the same direction, it rides better tied to the car roof!

    Gee-sh!
