When using ply be aware that ply bends more easily in one direction than the other.Use this KNOWLEDGE to make your planking a little easier. There is a BENDY ply that actually can roll very easily. The Orange store and the like stock it. It is used to encase cabinet frames such as round or oval islands etc.
Happy bending👍
