I know someone posted earlier about this issue but I’ve searched and can’t find it.
I just cut a last minute gift box out of Proofgrade Walnut plywood - cut fine. Yay!
Then I removed the masking - the front surface looked ok, but the backside - ick! The finish is not smooth and it looks like a cheap plastic. Not at all what I’m used to from using the PG Maple ply (it’s all been fantastic). I also uncovered a scratch on the back surface- I think it goes across the whole sheet (it was not visible until I removed the masking).
I ordered several sheets of cherry and walnut plywood recently- now I’m worried that all in this batch might be bad and there’s no way to know unless you pull up the masking.
Is there a resolution for this subpar Proofgrade?
