Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Transplanted Great Quality!!!
I'd be hard pressed to find a 2'x4' sheet of plywood as nice as this in a store.
This is one quality sheet of plywood.
I've been using Columbia Forest Products plywood sheets for some time, and the quality is always superior. The sheets are extremely well packed and arrive with no warping.
Their sheets have no voids, cracks, or rough edges.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with their products, and will continue to purchase their plywood whenever the need arises.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Texas123 One of the nicest pieces of plywood I have ever seen
1/2in. X 2ft. X 4ft. Poplar Plywood
This poplar panel is simply outstanding!! The panel was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. While I normally expect a few end voids even in really nice plywood I was unable to find any on this piece. I have never seen a four foot piece of ply that was any flatter than this or any nicer. I would feel comfortable using this for almost any project. This piece has a very nice grain to it and with the correct stain you could use it to imitate many different types of wood. While I am not a furniture maker or fine craftsman I still appreciate a really nice board, if you are looking for a piece of poplar I can not imagine you being unhappy with this.
No end voids

I have used several different varieties of these Columbia Forest plywood panels. They have all been of good quality and good looking on both sides. Aside from being easy to handle (2 ft. x 4 ft) they are easy to cut, rout, sand, and paint or stain. I have used a clear stain or varathane on some of my panels and they look gorgeous!
I have used some for closet shelves and so far, no sagging nor warping.
I find that these plywood panels are an excellent recycle of the fast growing Poplar Tree. I have cut many of these trees down on my property as they propagate like rabbits!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by inka1941 Absolutely beautiful grain in wood on both sides
This piece of poplar plywood is absolutely gorgeous, can hardly wait to see it lacquered and on my desk. Got this for a fall project and can hardly wait for a cool day to get started. Too hot right now in Southern Arizona's desert country to be finishing projects out doors. This piece of plywood is finished on both sides, looks remarkably like a solid piece of wood. Was going to paint it but when we saw this beautiful piece of wood we changed our minds. Instead we will put on a very light stain with several coats of clear finish. Will post pictures once we have completed the project. It is really going to be a great desk that cost very little as we are refinishing a salvaged school desk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Very Nice Plywood
Lovely, high quality plywood. Almost no voids whatsoever. The piece I got has some nice heartwood/sapwood contrasts, typical of poplar. The wood measures a full 1/2 inch thick, and the actual poplar veneer is in the neighborhood of 1/32", enough to give you a little wiggle room if you want to stain and sand back a bit. I'll use this for furniture or boxes--definitely nice plywood to look at.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adele0283 Great wood for ANY project
I previously bought some of this wood to make a lazy Susan type 2 tier rack for my craft paints and it worked out so nice, I got more of this wood in a different type of wood. Last time I used Oak. This time I used Poplar and made a lazy Susan 4x4 platform that could withstand 1000 lbs. to put my heavy jobs on so I could spin them as I work on them. I refinish Items made of iron or concrete and since I am disabled and work from a chair, it saves me from having to get someone to turn the pieces for me when I am working on them. The wood was very strong, it held the screws for the turntable mechanism perfectly. Now, I can refinish that pot belly stove and that concrete planter I been meaning to get after.

This 1/4" plywood arrived in great shape and I was very pleased. Only issue was delivery cost. Would have liked to have it delivered to local HD, but packaging was good and delivered in good shape. Very pleased...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonaldR Top Quality Panel
I have purchased or obtained various project panels in other species before. This was the first time I received a Poplar panel. I was VERY impressed with the quality. First of all the poplar top panel was in perfect shape. There was not one defect or blemish on either side. It was at least 120 grit smooth. Also, one side had virtually no knots, and the other side did have knots. I'm unsure if this was intentional, but it provided a preference, depending on the finish look desired. Finally, the board was solid all the way through with no empty spaces between the laminated layers. I would definitely use this product again, when the need arises.
