Choosing the Right Plywood

The American National Standard Institute (ANSI) grades plywood veneer faces AA, A, B, C, D and E with AA as the best quality. Backs are graded 1, 2, 3 or 4, with 1 being the best. So a B2 panel has a B-grade face with a 2-grade back, a C4 panel has a C-grade face with a 4-grade back, and so on.
