Lowe's inventory system sucks.
The system says they have 62 sheets in the store, we found one (1!) warped
sheet in the bin and nothing anywhere else in the store. The guy even went

Lowe's labeling system sucks.
Remember that someone mentioned the web site says it's only 3' wide?
Well, it's more than 3' but we're not sure if it's 3.950' or 3.989'.
We're also not sure if it's .703" thick or .688"
The manufacturer's label doesn't match Lowe's label. You would think that
they would check that, especially when the labels are less than an inch
The product itself sucks (at least for my application)
It's listed as "Veneer Grade ACX". One face is really nice, the other is
C-/D+ at best. It won't work for my bookcases.
The Home Depot 6 ply Radiata is paint ready on both faces, but now you guys
have me all worried about the 6 ply configuration. Ack!
I need to stop over at Lowes and see if the surfaces are the same.
I'm not worried about the ply configuration at all.
The orientation of the plies look to be stable.
Besides, you're building a box with a full back panel. You can pull
slight warping out during assembly. It happens, you deal with it.
Most bookcases are built with an attached center shelf to help with
