Project looks good Drew. I like the look of the cherry and oak together...might have to consider that in one of my future projects.
I agree about the Home Depot plywood, it is crap. I've had entire sheets of it warp while stored along side some other oak ply that was from a local cabinet supply that didn't. Agree about the tear-out too, not to mention it's the thinnest veneer I've seen yet. If I've got the choice I'll go to lowes over Home Depot, the service at lowes is much better and quality seems to be so too.
