Thanks for sharing this. My home state has very high humidity - 80% to 90+% and once the top veneer of plywood starts giving way, there is nothing that can save a painting on that surface.

Plywood is my second least favorite painting surface, just above least favorite - MDF. I have to use it with Encaustics. I try to avoid it with oils and acrylics. Plywood made from sawn, not peeled veneer is bunches better, but costs bunches more.
