Plywood in cabinets
I need to finalize my cabinet plan in the next day or two. We ordered a sample RTA cabinet from Barker made of plywood, but decided to go with a local custom shop instead. After seeing how much prettier the plywood was than the plain white melamine, I was considering plywood. I asked the cabinet place about it today and he said that they don't want to do plywood because they have read so many health advisories against it. Supposedly, any finish they put on the plywood will inevitably break down over time and the chemicals will be toxic to my family. In all the many many many discussions here on Gardenweb about about plywood versus melamine, I don't ever recall reading something like this.
Can anyone in the know on this tell me if this is a valid concern?
