Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY03038 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.

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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MumblePants 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Beautiful panel; beautiful finish
This is a very nice pre-finished "handy panel" of maple veneer. It is finished on both sides with a clear sealer. The panel I got is perfectly clear wood on the front meaning it is free of voids, knots, etc. and has one dark area in the wood veneer on the other side. This is not a problem for me as I know the imperfections in color that are to be found in Maple and this color variation adds to the visual interest of the piece for me. The finish on both of the front and back surfaces is remarkable. The finish is perfectly clear and the panel's smooth as glass. I will cut this panel into shelves to go alongside some cabinets I have and I will band the cut edges and sides with maple or a contrasting wood banding material. This is a beautiful pre-finished maple handy panel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DickB 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by LindaLW Very nice product, I can't wait to finish my project with it! Very pretty, very smooth wood!
this sheet of plywood looks so nice, I can't wait to get my project done! Very smooth, very flat, no warping or twisting - it is going to be a shelf inside a new kitchen island; it has been cut to the right size, and fits well, but I still have a lot to do to be completely done with this piece. You would think this was a sheet of finished maple, the panel has such a realistic look! It's going to be a great island when I finally get it all done!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by daninkaty Uniform Satin Finish
This has a nice uniform satin finish on the one side of the plywood. It kind a has a yellow ting to the wood so it doesn't look like the maple wood I purchase. The plywood itself is sturdy and easy to cut with a table saw or jigsaw. The saws don't leave any marks on the finish side after cutting. This helps speed up some projects with it being already finished.
