I have a couple of sheets of medium cherry Pg that I received right after Christmas. I cut a small sample from one of those as a proof of concept and to show color and finish (compared to walnut and maple).
Based on that comparison, I ordered 26 sheets of med cherry plywood. The first sheet I cut does not match the original sheet I got in December. It’s a shade or two lighter and the finish isn’t as smooth.
I was really hoping that PG would be reasonably consistent in color and finish. This is definitely not the case here.
The batch I just received is uniformly poorly finished in comparison. The finish is not smooth and lighter.
I’m very disappointed and stuck in a bad position because I need to cut 45 panels out of all of this and install it next week. And this is nearly $400 worth of wood.
