quick question about surfacing

Postby james_siy on Mon Apr 14, 2008 10:08 pm

ok well a builder has offered to sell me 20 sheets of plywood for 30$ but they are 244(8f oot)cmby 90cm(2.95feet) and 4mm thick! would that make much of a difference if i just double it up instead of the 3/8 ply?
and cover it with massonite later one once complete?

Its recommended to use two sheets of 3/8" plywood, so you will need more layers than just two

I've never used anything besides 3/8" plywood so its hard to say, it might be more difficult to screw/nail the wood down, the wood might crack easier, its hard to say... could work fine.

well if im not mistaken(i probably am) the 3/8 ply is 9mm thick, so what if i got some liquid nails and glues too shits of the 4mm ply together so its easier to nail/screw?

i might just try that on the middle section and see how it turns out cause i got a far bit of 2x4 laying around so i can make another one
