Default lauan (pronounced "lu - awn")

Lauan plywood is smoother than regular. It's a quarter of an inch thick and expensive. It is the underlayment on tiled floors.

If you are an ecological activist, however, consider:

Anyway, You've got me thinking of building my own outdoor skating platform: 8 foot square, two pieces of lauan, two pieces of 3/4-inch ordinary plywood underneath, two-by-fours or two-by-sixes.

But when it rains?
