Use this 1/2 in. x 2 ft. x 4 ft. PureBond Alder Plywood Project Panel for your next cabinetry or furniture project and never worry about it releasing airborne contaminants, as formaldehyde-laden products are prone to do. Decorative alder veneers grace the top and bottom of this 5-ply panel, with other hardwood layers sandwiched between and glued with a soy-based PureBond technology that is environmentally friendly and won’t off-gas toxic fumes like UF plywood. The natural warmth and beauty of real alder gives the top and bottom veneers a splendid appearance that forms the foundation for impressive DIY creations, such as serving trays, end tables, pet food centers, footstools, wall pockets, shelves and more. It's a cost-competitive alternative to products that may degrade indoor air quality over time, and its water resistance further strengthens its endurance for lasting performance.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient quality plywood This plywood is a good trade-off between price and quality. I have used better plywood, but not in this price range. The size is also convenient, it fits in my small car without needing to bring the trailer, which is a major factor for me living 90 miles from the nearest Home Depot store. Judging by the edges, before and after cutting, the plywood is almost completely void free. The surface veneer is free of defects and takes on a fine finish. March 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Piece It is of course not furniture grade, but a nice piece of plywood. The cut I received had a beautiful grain and I stained it a cherry color for a shelf. It matched the cherry cabinet perfectly. I am very pleased overall with this. March 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking wood for any project. I got quite a few of these for different projects around my home. I made shelves, a lazy Susan, a hobby paint carousel, wall art, and signs. I even used a piece for a table top under my bird cage. This wood is so versatile. In several species of wood, even cedar, you can use it for almost anything. Its comes pre sanded, cut a uniform 2 ft. x 4 ft. and some is even pre finished. It saves so much time when you need a nice looking wood in a cinch. Everyone of the styles I got were straight, flat, and not warped, sanded smooth, and cut perfectly to size. I couldn't ask for a better product. October 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great ply with few voids This alder plywood has few voids and stains real easy, too. The alder wood is becoming more popular in today’s cabinetry, and this sheet of alder plywood is easy to work with. It has very few voids and the alder face accepts finish very well. All-in-all, a great buy! June 17, 2014
