Can the preprimed side be stained -- if so any special precautions/preparation? If not, and both sides are visible in places, how do I NOT use paint?
Asked by: Ldr
Hello, If you do not want to use paint - I would recommend going with the poplar option that is not pre-primed. There are other options as well like maple, cherry, etc. that do not have the prime coat on them. Thanks

Can it be painted and used as an outdoor sign material?
Asked by: Joseph
Hello Joseph, The plywood is intended for interior applications. It is not recommended for exterior applications. The glue used to bond the layers is water resistant – but not waterproof.

1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 4 ft. PureBond Pre-Primed Poplar Plywood Project Panel (Free Custom Cut Available) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Plywood with a Valuable Prime I'm building numerous base and wall cabinets for my garage workshop project. I've got about 28 feet of wall space at nine feet high, so about 14 cabinets each of base (34 inches high) and wall (48 inches high), about two feet wide each. I was doing two coats of primer and one coat of white. I tried some of this pre-primed plywood. This is really a HUGE time-saver. Any plywood with a veneer really soaks up any kind of finish, so having one coat already done was perfect. Also, I think the primer helps in the cuts, as I wasn't getting near as much tear-out. I'm using good tools and techniques, so I was surprised I was getting better results. I'll definitely be using this in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very straight, strong wood I used this wood to build a high end looking linen cabinet. We used the 3/4 inch thickness for the sides, both for support and good looks. It's very very smooth, very straight and strong piece of wood. It cut nicely with a sharp blade and the pre primed surface took the paint very nicely. I also used this same wood in the 1/2" thickness for the shelves, and they came out beautiful. I would highly recommend this wood for fine woodworking projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality, good wood This is a beautiful piece of wood, perfect for a woodworking project, such as building a high-end looking linen cabinet, like we did. I used this for the shelving and it was easy to cut (using a sharp blade of course), very smooth, and the paint adhered nicely to the pre-primed surface. Very sturdy and smooth, nice looking piece of wood. I also used the 3/4 inch preprimed poplar plywood for the sides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy size This panel is a handy size to work for smaller projects. I had a project where I needed to construct a sidewall to support several large, thin boxes of equipment. (A bookend so to speak). The panel was just the right size. I did not have to cut it at all. And because it was primed, it saved lots of time because it was ready to paint. Please note that while the plywood is primed on both sides, the edges are not primed. Also note that the primer is not necessarily a sealer, so there were a couple of wood knots that showed through the primer a bit. Have some primer available to do the edges and knots if needed. If you cut the panel, that cut edge will need to be primed anyway.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bowed at both ends I got this to make a cabinet door for a project I'm working on. Unfortunately, the panel is bowed on each end so it's useless to me. While I'm sure I'll find another use for the wood, I'm disappointed because it won't be used for what I meant to use it for. I probably wouldn't care as much if I could trim off the bowed sections, but it's a large door so that's not possible. Because this isn't sold in stores, you can only hope that the piece that you get isn't bowed. Based on other reviews, it seems to be hit or miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece of plywood This 2 X 4 sheet was shipped to me. I was pleasantly surprised when the box arrived. Good heavy cardboard box and the sheet of plywood was sandwiched between two very stiff sheets of cardboard. No damage. I like the preprimed sheet, I'm using it for some drawer bottoms (yes, I do apply finish to drawer bottoms). I haven't sliced and diced the whole sheet but so far I have yet to encounter a void. Nice clean piece of plywood. I did find the surface to be a little rougher than I wanted but just a quick rub with some 320 grit smoothed it out nicely. Seemed to be raised grain from the primer application.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for painted projects, but not ready-to-display This plywood was dead flat, even after leaning at an odd angle against my workbench for over a week. The surface is continuous and free of positive material. The primer appears to have filled the knots, but it does not hide them. I didn't paint the project I used them for, but it looks like this primer would go a long way to keeping the oil from the knots bleeding through, requiring less paint, which would save time and money on larger projects.
