Hi everyone. I was at Menards yesterday and I asked a guy what the difference between veneer core and hardwood veneer core was and he didn't know. I was wondering if anyone knows? The hardwood veneer core says it is 11 ply hardwood core. (Whatever that means) with a plain sliced oak face. And it is $10 less than the veneer core oak which is rotary sliced. I was wanting to know which one is less prone to bow and overall better. It's an odd project but i'm making a reptile encloser (cage/box) that is 6' x 3' x 2/1/2' and it will get about 120 degrees F in it. Thank you.
