So I’m about to start some projects cutting Proofgrade wood panels, and trying to decide between purchasing hardwood or plywood. I’m hoping to learn from others experience in working with those materials:
From the pictures I’ve seen, it looks like the cut edge on Proofgrade plywood has a perma-char that you just have to embrace - is that true? Does the charred edge act like chalk, depositing soot on anything it touches?
As for charring and hardwood, is it correct to think that the cut edge of a hardwood panel can be cleaned up? Can someone share what a cut edge on hardwood looks like?
Are the hardwood panels prone to warpage? Has anyone made drink coasters using hardwood and later regretted it?
