Wow! Yaqifan from China. Welcome.

What does "quality is better than that before 2005." mean? Is it true hardwood with formaldehyde free glue? Or is it stained with maple, cherry, etc. stain?

Thank you. Haven't seen Made in USA in our local stores, But I will look next time I'm at Lowes.

Bought a stack of it at HD in 1995 for cabinets in my photography studio. In about 2005 tried to buy more, every palette of 40 sheets was warped and bowed. One palette sprung into a bow of 8 inches in center of the 8' length as soon as the banding was cut.

This could be a breath of fresh air. Maybe Lowes and HD finally realized the cheap junk was hurting their business.
