Kevin shows you how to prepare your ware boards so they resist absorbing too much moisture and release your pieces easily. Kevin is prepping 3/4" pine plywood in this one and the boards are 12" by 12". We're also including Kevin's cut guide for getting the most ware boards out of a 4' by 8' sheet of plywood.
