Frequently Asked Questions

  • Some boards have a thickness listed in plies, some are in points, some are in inches. Is there a conversion table?

    Not exactly, because measurements given in plies simply count the number of layers of material that are laminated together, so a 4-ply board may measure the same as a 14-ply board. When measuring boards, points are one-thousandth of an inch (0.001" or 1 mil). Look for measurements in points, mil, inches, or millimeters for measurements that are easy to convert.
