    Why won't peel and stick tile stick to plywood?
    Why can't we get the peel and stick floor tile to stick to plywood? We tried the primer and adhiesive and a few other things.. nothing works. Is it likely we may have to buy something such as very very thin wood that looks like paneling, I can't remember the name, to cover the floor in and lay it before we can get it to stick?

    We used mahogany plywood which has a less porous finish then regular plywood. Is that the name you were looking for. It isn't expensive, but gives a better adhesion.
