Oil painting on plywood

From: Lalit Kumar <renukalk<-a>

An oil painting on ply wood has developed large fissures in the top
layer. The fissures are running vertically and horizontally at three
places. I am planing to remove the ground layers and transfer the
top painted layer on a new ground. There are two major problem in
the restoration of this painting: one, devising a technique to
realign the edges of the fissures, and second what should be the
best choice of material for the transfer of the painted layer on ply
wood. A better quality of ply wood would be a natural choice of
material for transfer but it would never be compatible with the
fifty years old ply wood.

Does any body have the experience in handling problem of restoration
of the oil painting on ply wood?
