    name of a supplier or the company

    that makes prefinished plywood, done a search and had no luck for a local distributor. so would like to contact a company that sells it to see who is a distributor in my area. asked a local lumber yard and he wasnt even aware it was available.

    Larry Im pretty sure the brand I get is Columbia.
    This is the supplier I get it from, unfortunately the farthest west they are is NY. But, all the pertinent info you need should be on their website to find a distributor in your area.

    Here's a couple of links. Try the second link and plug in MI into the state.
    Looks like they have wholesale distributors in several locations.

    what I do Larry is prefinish the face frames before putting them on the boxes. Then, I use cork pads on my clamps and apply just enough pressure to hold them while I run in the pocket screws. Works great and I dont have to mask anything off. I build my boxes first then size my face frames accordingly, do all my machining and then prefinish.

    local craft supply I get 6x6 1/4" thick cork and cut to fit the size of my clamps

    Larry, most of the places I get the prefinished stuff from call it UV. It stands for ultraviolet cured polyurethane. I get mine from Cedar Creek Lumber out of Tulsa OK. I do like Rich and finish my frames before assembly. I did the assembly then finish for a long time but spraying the UV will result in an overspray that will be a bit rough to the touch. I used to clean that up with a bit of 220 sandpaper but it took the sheen off the UV. I dado all my faceframes to recieve the plywood with a 1/2 x 3/8 groove, finish the frames and assemble face down on a wool carpet. As long as I keep the carpet clean and free of hardware I don't get any scratching.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.
