I read a letter in the latest Aust multi mag referring to the article you mention. I haven't got the original but what I did read it sounds to me you need a lot of experience with the method to design well for it. I've always found torturing plywood to be bit of a hit and miss affair. If the humidity/ply thickness/grain orientation/wood type etc aren't exactly correct then it will either break or not torture. Malcolm Tennant did a lot of this many years ago so is able to design for it. I don't have that experience so wouldn't feel good about advising builders to use it.

Just thinking idly about strip planking vs the kitset idea, what about
a tortured ply harry? feasible or not?
