I think that these answers may be right in a small range of specific circumstances, but not right in mine. My plywood pieces had been sitting indoors in a constant environment, with both sides exposed to the same air, and they warped and they stayed warped. If these answers were correct, plywood cabinets and furniture would be writhing around all over the ...

The simple approach (and the one I'd suggest above any of the following) is to have a sock-hop (take off your shoes and dance on the carpet) and the most workable approach to a one-time need for a hard floor is to rent a dance floor (they are a standard rental-store item, as seen at weddings done in huge tents, etc...) 8x8 is a rather tiny dance floor for "a ...

I would use an external grade ply, seal underside and edges with acrylic primer and stick the tiles with an adhesive suitable for glass mosaic.

How thick is the plywood? If you're talking about bolting through the plywood into the entertainment center, why not use screws from the entertainment center out into the plywood. That way you would come from the back of the plywood and not disturb the front. Depending on how the entertainment center is configured, it may be possible to use a recessed ...

Take a look at a French cleat, it will help keep the ply level and supported and will allow you to remove whenever you wanted provided you can lift the plywood off the back. The two factors here, one are getting the cleat affixed to the ply and the entertainment back, ideally both have enough depth for wood screws. The second is the gap between the ply ...

I don't think it's going to be critical but when in doubt: PL. As far as I can tell, PL Premium can bond anything to anything. In a case like this, do a bead around the perimeter and bolts (quarter sized blobs) about 8" inches apart in a grid and you'd have to sacrifice a goat to a powerful deity to get those two pieces of plywood apart. The more important ...

Assuming the existing subfloor does not have excessive deflection in it, I would put down a 1/4" tile backerboard instead of plywood, and then put Ditra on top of that, and then tile. If you are using a 1/4" floor tile, that will give you pretty much a 3/4" final thickness which generally works well with other flooring. If the subfloor isn't that solid, ...

Basically any plywood will do. If I were doing it I would go with 3/4 inch. The key to a vinyl install install isn't the quality or depth of the subfloor but how flat it is. Any divots or seams bigger than 1/8" could have issues in the future and need to be filled.
