Re: Plywood reefers

Greg Martin writes:I'm sure Greg is right. The PFE documents did refer to "curling, checking and cracking," but as it happens the shop sketch I saw did have about a 1/8 inch gap between the plywood sheets. Is that an inadequate gap, Greg? That gap was in addition to the T-section metal seal strip (with the "leg" of the T down between the sheets).
As for it being an "installation error," I have no doubt that PFE followed the instructions of the Douglas Fir Plywood Association --
whatever they may have been <g>.
