Use this 1/4 in. x 2 ft. x 4 ft. PureBond Maple 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. A decorative maple veneer graces the face of this 3-ply panel, assembled on top of two other veneers 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 maple gives the decorative face veneer 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.

Hello Kris,
We do not have a Maple panel for exterior applications. The glue used to bond the layers is water resistant – but not waterproof.

You would definitely have to plan out where your ceiling joists are if they are not visible, I don't think there is any way to keep this flat to the ceiling without using mechanical fasteners attached to the joists (screws, nails, pneumatic brads, etc). If you don't mind visible hardware and all of your ceiling joists are easily 'hit,' this still sounds like a six-handed project--two people to hold the panel in place, and one to fasten. Read Less

Answer: 
Hello Sue,
We can’t give installation advice as it is the responsibility of the installer to ensure the suitability of the plywood for their given application. We do know that the product has been used for many years for this application. I think with the proper design, including some decorative method of covering the joints, it will work fine.

Hello,
It’s a little thinner than a full ¼” thickness. The range of thickness will be between .203”-.250”. Average closer to the .203” thickness. Please contact me at kcrisp@cfpwood.com and I will get you a sample to test.

I cut it on a tablesaw with extra infeed and outfeed support. The 1/4" material is quite flexible, so if you were to cut it with a circular saw you would need to support the entire panel to ensure accuracy and safety, and I would also recommend a track, rail, or shop-made edge guide (like a straightedge or board clamped to the panel).

You could probably use it as a refacing material, but the veneers are ultra-thin and have a 12" repeat, so it would likely work best as frame and case material, using contact cement I'd assume for a good bond, but I would go with a higher quality, furniture-grade panel for side panels or larger visible areas.

Hello DIY Builder,
We can’t give installation advice as it is the responsibility of the installer to ensure the suitability of the plywood for their given application. We do know that the product has been used for many years for this application. A table saw would be the tool of choice for precise cuts, using a blade suited for plywood cuts.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice veneer I like to use these 1/4" project panels for drawer and box bottoms. This plywood is very stable and can be tightly constrained in a groove without wood movement issues. This adds a little rigidity to the frame (vs a floating panel) It 's B4 grade, so one face will be much better than the other. On this particular piece, both faces were really good. The veneers are a little on the thin side, but fully workable. I have not had any issues with delaminating veneers and I have yet to find a plug anywhere (on either face). July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gorgeous plywood I have been researching plywood to use for my new kitchen cupboard doors and drawer fronts and think I've found what I will be using. The grain on this plywood is very attractive on BOTH sides!! Something extremely important for cupboard doors. I'm not quite ready to jump into construction yet, but hope to soon. Looking forward to acquiring more of this plywood once I've figured out my cut diagrams and how much I'll need to buy. May 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top-Grade Plywood This is top-grade plywood, for furniture, cabinetry, etc. You can tell just looking at the edges - the lack of large voids compared to regular-grade plywoods. And the faces - there is no comparison. Looks like a huge smooth piece of solid hardwood, bigger than any tree ever grew. Almost ready-to-finish, just a little light sanding. But note: a little light sanding is all you can do, if you sand through the veneer, the underlying layer makes a very obvious defect. The veneer is quite thin, and only one side is really nice, the other is also veneered, but meh. The 4x8 sheets are in-store items only, which is a good thing. I had them delivered to the house through the Seeds program, and I was fairly shocked at what showed up in my driveway. Well, I guess it is kind of daft to mail-order 2 full sheets of plywood. Store delivery is probably a better option. The 2x4 sheets are available in-store or home-delivered via UPS, very convenient. Different woods are stocked at different stores as listed in the website, so with a little driving you can find pretty much any one. February 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for DIY upholstered headboard. I am a beginner to DIY, and extremely satisfied with this product. The surface was smooth and light colored that I could paint on it; the board was easy to cut with the cheapest jigsaw; Also it was easy to adhere with just wood glue. I am not an expert but I heard fusses about the difficulties of stapling on some high density boards, yet this product is just about perfect dense for hand staple guns. I bought a spare board just in case of the measurement isn't right, which I didn't need at all. The measurement was perfect. To anyone who wants to start DIY headboard project, I would recommend this product. December 11, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTING, TO THE POINT OF ANGER While I have done plenty of DIY construction and finish work, have made a number of furniture projects and small, high quality interior items, and built some outdoor and shop cabinets, this project is my first attempt at quality interior casework. I planned for a long time, designed and drew dimensional and elevational sketches , and made extensive cut and process lists before deciding to purchase these project panels from Home Depot. All the reviews indicate 'Ships Free to Store' as an option. It is NOT. The estimated shipping costs were high, but weighed against a 12 mile drive to a proper lumber yard, I elected to make this purchase based upon the positive reviews. ACTUAL shipping costs were MUCH HIGHER than estimated, totalling 70% of the product cost. All of the panels--I purchased 9 of the 2' x 4' in 3/4" and 3 of the 4' x 4' in 1/4"--were damaged, with crushed and very rounded corners, and several with peeling and delaminating veneers at the edges. I intended to use the 3/4" panels as case for console-height bookcases, with three additional panels purchased to laminate with the case to form the top and the 1/4" for the backs. I had to carefully trim all the rounded corners and peeling edge veneers so as to begin with fresh edges. There were no usable machine edges to use as reference. Not only did this trimming add a couple hours of setup time to the project, it also left me without enough material to use for the bookcase tops. I definitely understand that the quality of the packaging is the responsibility of the shipper (Columbia Forest Products), and care taken in the shipping is the responsibility of the shipping company (UPS), but the excessive charge for shipping was made by Home Depot, and all of the foregoing is germane to my product review and needs to be included here. Potential buyers deserve to understand how shipping cost effects overall product cost, and how shipping damage contributes to product wasteage, especially in combination with product quality issues. These panels have NO wood plys whatsoever. The veneers encapsulate what appears to be two different MDF/wood composite-types of materials. The thin-veneer + no wood core combination means these panels have little potential for fastener holding, so all edges needed to be pre-prepped with glue sizing to maximize potential gluing strength, and in addition to gluing I decided to use both pocket screws and edge screws to ensure holding strength. Only time will tell whether they will hold. As I mentioned before, the veneers are thin; ultra-thin, actually--wallpaper is thicker than the maple veneers on these panels. In combination with the composite cores, this actually contributes to the primary positive quality of this product: it machines very easily and precisely, and allowed for me to cut extremely sharp dadoes and rabbets for the shelves and backs of the cases. There was no chip- or tearout, but that is largely because there is nothing TO chip- or tearout. However, the concern remains the same, that the gluing strength just will not be there, and as the shelves are of solid maple 11.5" wide, maximum glue hold would be desirable. The outside of the case where I might have otherwise reinforced with screws or other mechanical fasteners is visible, so no possibility of that. I did a load calculation for solid maple and cross-braced accordingly, and with solid wood trim and top plus a rigid back I will hope that there will be no pressure outward on the cases from the weight within. These cases COULD push apart from the shelf load, as 4 of the 3/4" panels were markedly warped-fortunately inward (according to the "A" face of the veneer), and that indicates to me a lack of dimensional stability in the product. Dimensional stability is why I chose to case this product in plywood in the first place, so that is incredibly disheartening. Added to that dimensional instability is what I now know to be THERMAL instability as well--after the cases were assembled I moved the off-cut portions of the panels out of my small heated shop and into my 'woodshed;' this shed is enclosed and weather-tight, but unheated and only partially insulated, and therefore not much different than your average unconditioned garage space--you know, the place where most people have their workshops. After ONLY TWO DAYS in this shed, I noticed that all the off-cut sections were warping, with veneer delamination all the way across their surfaces, rendering them unusable for other purpose. A total waste of 30% of my purchase. Be advised and warned if you intend to store the raw product or partially finished project in unconditioned space such as garage, shed, unheated basement or unheated shop. Upon completing case and shelf assembly, I noted a few places where glue had squeezed from joints and onto the veneers. In attempting to clean this up, I sanded the veneers lightly by hand with 220 grit sandpaper and a sanding block. The veneers are so thin that a small amount of Titebond squeeze-out was able to soak all the way through the veneer, and I was only able to figure this out by accidentally sanding THROUGH the veneer to the substrate underneath. By hand. Gingerly. With 220 grit paper. THAT is a thin veneer. If you must sand this-and it is nowhere near finish-ready when you get it--you absolutely MUST maintain an extremely deft touch with your sanding procedure. I recommend 320 grit paper, no more than one pass, and DO NOT under any circumstance get glue anywhere where it can be seen and interfere with your finish. When it came to fabricating a top for the bookcases, I decided not to purchase any more of this product and instead special order furniture-quality maple plywood from my nearest lumber yard. Although these project panels are described as a 'cost-effective option,' when shipping costs are factored in, they are not. Especially when compared to far superior maple plywood--I purchased a single sheet of "true 3/4" maple ply for $15 less than the average cost of 4 of these quarter sheets (with shipping factored in), and that includes paying for a rip cut at the lumber yard so I could fit the sheet into my SUV. Any expected convenience of having the panels delivered was well overbalanced by the amount of prep work and product waste that I experienced. Next time I decide to case a project in plywood, I will special order and drive 12 miles to the lumber yard, or drive 27 miles to the nearest specialty lumber retailer and buy off the rack. I won't purchase these again, not on a bet or a dare. As it is, the project is completed. I decided after purchasing additional maple ply elsewhere to go a different direction with my bookcase tops. My concern with the finished product, which I had envisioned as something between high-level casework and fine, heritage furniture is that the quality of the case material-these maple plywood project panels-is just not there and will likely affect the life of the furniture I made. It took me three and a half weeks of evening-and-weekend free time to make these three bookcases (plus an additional two weeks of evenings and weekends to prep and finish the tops I eventually chose to make), and they should last my lifetime-and my daughter's, and her future children's too...but if scratched with the vacuum or left in an unheated space for two days, that will be the end for the casework. I am angry at Home Depot for selling these, and even angrier at myself for buying them and using them. What is done is done, I guess, but be warned before you buy. I have included a photo collage of the completed cases in my workshop, where the finish I applied is curing out before I bring them indoors. April 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Purchased to make a spice rack I purchased this product to be used by someone else to make a pullout spice rack. The job turned out great as a new addition to my "refreshed" kitchen. Nice material. September 2, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by As advertized a good product for wood burning. I bought the veneer for wood burning and etching. The face of the wood is even in grain with a few dark bands that will have to be cut out. Fortunately they are on an edge so most of the panel is usable. February 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Panel Perfect I made replacement ceiling fan blades from this plywood; time will tell how well they stand up. October 9, 2014
