Re: [BKARTS] Making cover for 26x38" book



Plywood is ideal for flat and light.
As far as I know there is no known method fro isolating the acids and oils of the wood from the cloth and paper, other than building sandwiches from a plastic like Mylar.
Water based varnishes work well, but no one knows for how long
and they also introduce the problem of glue adhesion.


Perhaps someone know something new about these issues, as I would love to feel comfortable about using plywood.

Birch ply would serve with the most uniform surface and edges.
