I don’t use plywood for stained work simply because I don’t have a convenient source for good quality plywood.
While not part of the grading standards, the classification of hardwood plywood as either Type I or Type II becomes important to you if your project will be used outside. The total combined thickness of both the MDF and the veneer could be as little as 5.35mm and as much as 6.65mm. Also because I am a pure amateur my mistakes alone could cost us a giant redwood if I used pure hardwood. American Walnut Veneer has been a standard in furniture and panel manufacturing as well as the standard for gun stocks for many years.

The number and thickness of the core plys will vary depending on if it is a domestic or imported project, but in most cases, the face grades will be better than what the HPVA grades dictates.
