Yes. We have an industrial panel saw that will cut up to 1” thick plywood/MDF (small pieces up to 5’x10’ in size). Before you decide to commit to us cutting your order, call us first. Occasionally we cannot cut pieces that are too small or plywood that is too thin.
The cost is $2/cut or $100/hr for larger cutting orders.
That’s a bit of a loaded question; but, generally all kinds. In terms of qualities we inventory sheets good for ground cover to the Cadillac of marine grade plywood and everything in between.

Mills generally make mistakes when manufacturing plywood. The sheets are not discarded; they are dropped down into a lesser grade such as a shop grade. Every mill is different as to what they allow to drop into this grade. Usually, most mills follow the same grading procedure. There is a wide range of what can be tolerated within this grade; but, at the same time there are maximum tolerances. Blistering, which is an adhesive bonding issue, is never tolerated in a shop grade.
Any mill will tell you that they allow for approximately 15% defects on the panel. That does technically mean that %15 of the lift can have a defect in one way or another. Generally that is not the outcome. In most cases the sheets look flawless.
Possible defects include:
99% of Plywood has a face and a back. Face grades are represented with letters and back grades are represented with numbers. The back-grade veneers are graded with lower standards than the face grades. Occasionally an AA graded sheet is requested (generally custom order only). The outcome is the very best veneer front and back.
