Well in an area like ft myers, I’d suggest seeing if you have a rockler or a woodcraft nearby.

Oof, yeah Ft. Myers is still not a hotbed of woodworking suppliers. What’s local to you? Like is Tampa too far?
You’ll find this thread interesting, though it doesn’t answer your question exactly.
Woodcraft stores are filled with knowledgeable people, you could always call them and talk it over with the reps, then order from their website. They have a Tampa location, but that’s a bit of a hike.
What’s interesting is that you have a very intriguing plywood manufacturer in your area:
MDF core exotic wood plywoods. Hmm, that bears some more investigation.
These guys may have some finishes in store, and probably some info, if you call them. I’m not 100% sure they have a retail space.
I mean if you talk to Woodcraft, you might find Do It Best has whatever they recommend in stock, but you’re definitely in for a bit of a hunt.
