Re: Who sells marine plywood?

You may wish to consider a very water resistant OSB. I know, i know... people try to avoid "particle board", this is not. OSB is extremely strong versus plywood and now a days it is the industry standard in the building market. Marine ply still soaks up plenty of water. Marine ply is a decay resistant product. It's all about the resins and chemicals used during manufacture.
I do recommend this product. You can take a piece and drop it in a bucket of water and actually see the water resistance. Pull it out after a week; visually it shows no absorption. Avoid any type of regular OSB. MDO i would avoid as well as it can absorb water as well if any gets to the cut edges or penetrates any surface openings.

Superior to Moisture Resistant Plywood, OSB Sheathing Products - AdvanTech
You can find this product at most REAL builder supply places, or order a sheet in. ie. not Home Depot, Lowes. Try a roofer supplier. It is expensive though.

It may not be the best for visual though. It does not bend at all if you need to shape it.
Using "exterior" grade plywood would not last long at all! It's a common misinterpretation that it will hold up to weather/water.

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

Jim,
Here're a couple of local options for you.

South Jersey Lumberman's Mays Landing - They're a good source for anything marine as they've supplied south Jersey builders like Viking for years. They stock marine ply, teak and all kinds of pre-milled teak and hardwood mouldings, fiddles, etc.

Mr. Roberts Lumber in Barrington NJ may have it, if not they can order it for you. They'll be a bit pricier than South Jersey Lumberman's but when you factor in the cost of gas...

Denise, Jim, if you're into turning then you both know about Penn State Industries in Northeast Philly. You can find some interesting turning blanks out back, sold by the pound at their place and lots of turning tools, kits, chucks, etc.

But have you checked out Hearne Hardwoods in Oxford PA (off Rt 1 south of Kennett Square).

This is a wood junkies paradise. They usually have about 3 million board feet on hand (not a typo). Rick stocks stuff that you've only seen in books. They have a 67" band saw and an 84" inch hydraulic chain saw mill! You can imagine their gnarly off cuts are great turning pieces. And you can find any exotic wood you've ever heard of at great prices. They're especially good with cherry and figured cherry.

LOL JIm, yes Penn State ind. is only about 25 mins from my house and I get most all of my router and turning supplies there. Most recently is the Barracuda chuck for my lathe. Hearne is a long ride for me. I did get some tiger maple there for my kitchen table a few years ago.

Kathy and I will make a day of going down to Hearnes to pick out wood for a project -- and of course we'll hit the place up on Rt 1 that makes the home made ice cream on the way home.

Re: Who sells marine plywood?

Possibly not helpful to the OP, but I went into Chesapeake Light Craft a couple days ago (right down the street from Bacon in Annapolis,) and picked up a scrap of 1/8 Okoume ply, about 1 ft x 3 ft, for $2. I'll definitely keep them in mind for bits of trim and other small projects (my scrap was for surfacing the two small shelves in my head.)

Bonus: their beautiful wooden boats are worth checking out too (kayaks, canoes, and other small craft.)
