Is this plywood still usable


Left this in the shed outside for a month. Its supposed to go under a heavy stand


Surface is rough/splintered now (humidity?). Is it going to crack/form dips/crumble apart? (layers dont look separated after cutting off an inch)

It's probably okay. Under a stand means what?

Looks fine. It doesn't look like exterior grade plywood so being in the shed can degrade it slowly from too high humidity and condensation.

Re: Is this plywood still usable


If it a rough plywood it has exterior glue. If there is any moisture in the first layer I would not lay it directly on the floor for a few days, if that is the plan.
