I've got some plans for a router table. The plans call for 3/4" "Good Plywood". I've no idea what or where to go buy. There are at least 3 options for lumber yards here. Big box store; 2 local lumber yards, 1 lumber yard that stocks lots of exotic wood.
One of the locally owned lumber stores will cut the plywood for $2/cut. I'd like to take advantage of that. My table saw is a contractor grade non portable saw, but I don't have the confidence to handle a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood yet.
I've used some software to come up with a plan for the cut list. I entered into the software that I was starting with (4) 2' x 4' pieces of wood, the software laid it out and the project really only needs 3 of the 2' x 4' pieces.
Does it make sense to just have the lumber yard cut the 4 x 8 into (2) 4 x 4 pieces? I can then cut them down to 2' x 4' and cut out my pieces. Or plan "B" I have a straight edge saw guide I can clamp down on the 4 x 8 and cut it in half with my circular saw.
What grade/type of plywood should I buy? If buying a higher quality, than is necessary, will make my project go easier I'm all for it. I've got no idea what to ask for?
