Saw a new brand of plywood today at Lowes Revolution Ply http://www.patriottimber.com/plywood-lumber-products/revolutionply-2/ It comes in various thickness 2.7mm up to 18mm in 4 x 8 sheets as well as 3 x 7. But Lowe's does not carry that full range, they only have one choice. What they had in stock at Lowes that I saw was 5mm in 4 x 8 sheets priced at $14.00 a sheet. Lowes item number 518477. It think it looks nice enough to use for cabinets but you might want a thinner sheet for wall paneling. It is called a B grade utility but the pieces I saw were much nicer than an B grade, as good as most A grade sheet goods. I really liked the surface finish, it was very fine grained, all vertical. Lovely to look at unless you prefer lots of wavy grain and/or knots. But fine grained vertical is very classy and will be especially appropriate in a modern style renovation. It looks to me to be Meranti wood, same grain structure and it has that slightly reddish tone. Meranti is from the same family as Luan but this stuff was a lot nicer too look at than anything called Luan plywood I have ever purchased especially any that I have gotten from the lumber yard recently. The plywood from Lowes has a clear coat primer which forms a moisture barrier, made with exterior glues, both sides of the sheet that I saw were nice looking. A minimal amount of very small voids were visible on the edges. It is from China certified from sustainable sources of timbers. Lowes was carrying some of the other sheet good products from this company, Patrior Timber, such as their underlayment plywood. It also looked to be a nice material.
