Why is it better to store plywood sheets flat rather than on edge?
“Plywood or other sheet stock can warp, especially if it’s stored surface to surface,” Bruce said. “The blocks separate the sheets so air can circulate on both sides. Flat sheets from the lumberyard stay flat this way, no matter how long they’re stored.”
