Plywood Patterns

I went to a Big store and saw this plywood that I thought odd. I regreted not buying it then but when I went back weeks later, I found it still there. I was suprised to see that you can get the book matched effect with plywood, but now as I examine other pieces I see that it is common. I plan to invert half of this to make doors on a shop cabinet yin-yang style. Hope my pic is visible...

Looks like the easter bunny to me. Or a hand making the OK sign.

My understanding is that the bookmatched plywood is because of how it is rotary sliced off the log. If you look at hollow core doors and such you can see the patterns repeat as well.

Thanks for rotating the pic. The upload originally failed due to size. I have, since my original curiosity, seen many vids of plywood and veneer production. Very interesting. I have a new interest in plywood and am now looking for some high quality (cherry or walnut) to play with. Is mail order (Internet ) a reasonable way to get some? Skeptical in Pittsburgh, Dan

That's not book-matched, it's a repeated pattern. That's common on paneling. Book-matched is a mirror image.

BTW, that paneling is exactly what I have in my study. It's about the only paneling I could find that I liked.
