DIYers and professional tradesmen can skip the final step on their next woodworking project with this lovely PureBond Prefinished Maple Plywood Project Panel. The hardwood face veneer is coated with a medium-gloss finish so it’s ready for use as soon as assembly is complete, thereby eliminating the tedious chore of applying stain.

Customer Questions & Answers

Is there any type of finish on the back side? If not standard, is that an option when ordering?

Asked by: WoodMan
I don't know if there is an option for that, but the reverse side is sort of a plain white, not bad looking either. Perhaps using two sheets back to back would work for your project..?

Is this product available in 1/2 x 4 x 8? I see 2 x 8 and 4 x 4 but no 4 x 8...

Asked by: zach
I have never seen double faced panels like this one in a 4' x 8' option. The HD does sell 4'x8' plywood sheets with maple, oak, & birch veneers that you can order. Some HD's do stock hardwood plywood. Check with the pro desk or the customer service desk for more info.

Is this intended to be kept this way or can I paint over it?

I want to get panels that I can paint over right away without sanding. Since this has a clear coat to it already, can I just paint over it?
Asked by: Sue
Yes, you can apply any acrylic or oil based house paint. Even artists paints will adhere to the durable polyurethane finish. Be aware that you can apply paint to bare wood too without sanding. The only issue is how smooth you want the final surface. They also sell pre-primed plywood, which is the absolute BEST surface for accepting paint. I've used those a bunch, and they are real time savers. They are very smooth and require NO sanding whatsoever to accept paint. If you spray the paint on, these pre-primed and sanded panels can make very nice signs, boxes, jig & fixtures... all sorts of things. Just search the HD website for "pre-primed handi-panels." Good Luck! ;-)

Is this wood panel suitable to use as a cutting board in the kitchen?

Asked by: Teabag
I wouldn't think so because it is an indoor plywood and so will not stand up to water, dampness, etc. The edges are not finished-they are not sealed. Also, I would guess the finish that is on the panel is not meant to come into contact with food.

Customer Reviews

1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 4 ft. PureBond Prefinished Maple Project Panel (Free Custom Cut Available) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Acceptable for interior cabinet The panel seems to be structurally sound, but it has a defect,(see photos), on both faces. I plan to use it to make drawer bottoms for a kitchen cabinet, so the defects won't be obvious except when you pull the drawer out. It has 5 plies including the two maple veneer faces. It seems to be strong enough to support the weight of pots and pans in the kitchen cabinet drawers for which I will be using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth I needed to replace the bottom of my crosscut sled and didn't really want to get a full sheet of nice plywood just for that. I probably would have used the material eventually but to save myself the headache of moving and cutting that beast and storing the extra material these project panels work great. All the layers were solid and produced nice clear cuts. The smooth panel surface makes it awesome for a sled it glides with minimal effort across the tablesaw top. Love this stuff.

I previously purchased this company's plywood and am very happy with the fit and finish. It is a very smooth and the edges finish out smoothly and nicely. This sheet is pre-finished with a nice clear polyurethane not just on one side but both sides. It is sanded very smooth before it is sprayed with the clear coat. I am making shelves for my model trains out of it and am pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Attractive Panel for Furntiture and Cabinets This pre-finished attractive panel is flat and square with a multi-layer core that is bond together well to form a strong moisture resistant panel that is ideal for indoor furniture and cabinet projects. The manufacturer applied gloss finish to both sides of the panel is durable and beautiful with no imperfections and should last for years when cleaned with non-abrasive cleaning products. A carbide tipped circular saw blade works well for cutting this panel to size with minimum splintering or tear out on the edges of the panel. I used this panel for a very strong and attractive computer table top that I secured to a support frame using small angle brackets under the panel to have no visible hardware on the top surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific customer service I purchased these project boards to line a linen cabinet. I emailed the rep (Kevin Crisp) from Columbia Forest Products to ask if they could cut the boards to size for me. He could not have been more helpful. He answered all of my questions quickly and helped me decide between a few different options. The boards arrived in good time. There were a couple of minor scratches and pressure dings in the pieces, but I just turned those faces around. I'm pretty sure that if I had tried to cut them myself, I would've caused more damage just through handling the boards. In any event, I'm very happy with the way the project turned out, and I'm especially pleased with Columbia's responsive customer service! They were a pleasure to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Maple Veneer Plywood This is a very high quality maple veneer plywood which would be useful in many woodworking projects. I am using this for a sign application, but it could have many uses. As you can see from the picture below, it is a very clear maple veneer which should hold up very well. It is free of any significant blemishes. It was finished with a nice clear coat and it was very smooth. I would highly recommend this maple veneer plywood!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Panels for DIY projects This 3/4in.x 2ft.x4ft. Pre-finished Maple Plywood is perfect for most small projects. You can carry this size panel in the back seat or trunk. The "half sheet" panel is ideal for handling. Light weight and easy to carry anywhere. The packaging is such that the panel is well protected for shipping and handling. The edges are void free making the edges easy to sand and paint or stain. It’s a water-resistant compilation that tolerates moisture better than formaldehyde-bonded plywood, while the 7-ply layering makes it less likely to warp than solid hardwood. The decorative hardwood panel is assembled with a soy-based PureBond adhesive that won’t emit airborne contaminants over time, as UF-constructed plywood is prone to do. These panels are available in larger sizes
