Standard sheets are 4’ x 8’. Or choose smaller PureBond Project Panels at homedepot.com to minimize waste.

Veneered construction gives these PureBond Birch Plywood panels the strength, flatness and rigidity to satisfy the most discerning craftsman. Each 3-ply sheet is assembled with a soy-based PureBond adhesive to fortify its structural integrity, with the added benefit of being formaldehyde-free so it will not off-gas toxic fumes over time as UF-constructed plywood is known to do. The decorative veneers are precision-cut from domestically grown, sustainably harvested birch trees, producing visually alluring wood grains on the face and back of the panel that exhibit the warmth, beauty and timeless quality of natural hardwood. Featuring real timber throughout, the core veneer consists of natural yellow poplar substrate laid in alternating cross bands for utmost stability and ruggedness. It's a cost-competitive alternative to urea formaldehyde-laden plywood and will not contribute to air-quality degradation like composite panels. For extraordinary results on your next carpentry or woodworking project, add this 1/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. panel to your arsenal for construction of cabinets, entertainment centers, wall panels, coffee tables, bookcases, toy chests, benches, desks, shelves and more. The decorative veneers have a smooth finish that allows painting or staining to make it uniquely yours.

  • 3-ply hardwood plywood panel is assembled with smooth, patch-free birch veneer applied to only the face side of this panel; the back of the panel is not intended to be exposed
  • PureBond hardwood plywood is an environmentally friendly, cost-competitive alternative to panels manufactured with urea formaldehyde (UF), which may degrade air quality over time
  • Contains 100% natural wood bonded with a food-grade soy-based adhesive that does not emit toxic air contaminants
  • The decorative top veneer, measuring approximately 1/42" thick, exhibits the beauty and timeless quality of natural hardwood and is suitable for painting or staining
  • Water-resistant composition has a higher moisture tolerance than UF panels and is less likely to warp than solid wood
  • Allow panel to acclimate to interior climate conditions for several days before customizing - for interior applications only
  • For best cutting results, use an 80-tooth (or greater) table saw blade intended for sheet goods or a carbide-tipped circular saw plywood blade
  • Common: 1/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft.; Actual: 0.203 in. x 48 in. x 96 in.
  • Direction of the grain is the length of panel
  • Each panel weighs approximately 21 lbs.
  • Grade: C-4 - See Grading Guide for additional information
  • Available in additional species- Maple and Red Oak
  • Note: Product may vary by store

Answer: 
Yes it is actually plywood. It is three plys. The inner ply appears to be hardwood, though possibly not birch ( I suspect poplar) One of the face veneers (the "good" side, is thicker than the other, but it's good stuff and I chopped up a sheet in to small pieces (12" square or so) and found no major voids.

There are a lot of different varieties of plywood. In 1/4 in thickness you arent going to find much 5 ply plywood as there just isn't that much room. It looks like 1 core layer run opposite the two veneers. If you poke around the net you can learn a lot about different types of plywood and the best uses for your application.

It looks like 1 core layer run opposite the two veneers. If you poke around the net you can learn a lot about different types of plywood and the best uses for your application. Often times MDF core is the best for pieces that need to have a nice finish without needing to be very strong (super smooth finish) In half inch and above you will find combo core plywood with veneer (ply) centers, mdf or partical board layers then a thin hardwood veneer.

Hello Bob,
The product image is a small section of the corner of the plywood. If the entire 8 ft. edge was shown you would see some color differences. Yellow Poplar is used for the substrate in this image. We also use Fir in the western US for substrate in the plywood.

The cork tiles are a bit thicker than normal bulletin board tiles. Maybe they were intended for the floor. Will this panel cover a cork tiled wall? If it does, any suggestions on how I should adhere it to the cork? Can the panel be painted? Thanks for your help!

Answer: 
One tip I can provide you. Being a renter I would gues that you can not remove the wall covering. You can cover it up for a low cost by using fabric panels. You can over lap panels to get a great effect. Also, you can pick many styles to fit you.

The plywood can be primed and painted as well, but try to avoid glues, as this can be a bigger mess than the ugly tiles you have on the wall now.

Answer: 
Hello Rick,
The majority of all plywood panels will have a nominal thickness. We can however make a panel that is closer to the full ¼” thickness. The core material would be a medium density fiber (MDF) substrate. The MDF is calibrated to an exact thickness. If we use a wood core – there is shrinkage from drying the veneer. The moisture leaving the veneer is one reason for thickness variation. Contact

Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Plywood Used to Be So Much Better For non-critical apps, especially when the job will be painted, this will suffice. The product I actually received was labeled 3/16" and not the 1/4" I ordered. It's rated "C-4" ... considered to be a good one side [but inferior to A and B where the back side will not be seen or it does not matter what is looks like; the back of the piece may have open knots, filled knots, bad veneer or be of a different species that the front. This material will work well for drawer bottoms, covering of cabinet faces, bar backs & end panels. The product has a 3-ply core and veneers that can't be any thicker than 0.025". I will be using the piece to make the carcasses of a pair of embedded wall units [which I will be spraying]. Ten years ago, the product would have been a 5-ply and have a much thicker veneer. March 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice for scroll sawing, drawer bottoms, non structural back panels I chopped this nice big sheet of 1/4 plywood into bits. I made 12" square panels for my students to attack with a scroll saw, CNC router, and laser cutter. I used a 10"x30" strip to form the back panel of a shallow "Shaker-ish" wall cabinet, and I cut up the rest to make 12"x20" bottom panels for drawers. The material behaved nicely in the scroll saw using a 12 TPI blade. It responded well to being cut up for tab and slot designs with a 1/16" end mill on the CNC router, and the surface veneer rastered nicely with the laser. To cut it with the laser, I made two fast passes. It is three ply, with one surface veneer slightly thicker than the other. It does want to curl in larger panels so it needs to be supported on all edges. I made the convex side face into the cabinet and upward on the drawer bottoms so that the structure of the cabinet and the mass of the items stored in the drawers would tend to force it flat. Well supported, there are no major problems. The smaller pieces, when tabbed and slotted together in birdhouse sized objects, needed a bit of pushing to overcome some very slight curl, but no more than I have experienced with very expensive "aircraft grade" plywood from the hobby shop. Good stuff and I will generally keep several sheets on hand in the school shop in the future. March 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WAY to THIN! BEWARE I bought a few sheets of these to make the inside of shaker doors. My router gig is set at 7/32 and it way too wide for these sheets. These sheets are no more than 6/32. Beware. Home depot should enforce true 1/4 or no less than 7/32. This thickness is unacceptable. November 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Watch for thickness You need to actually measure the thickness of all plywood these days. Although the the tag may say 1\4 inch it easily could be 5mm which when using this product with routered grooves will give a very poor result. If it is tagged as a certain thickness it should be that thickness, not like dimension lumber. May 9, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not really plywood Over time, the surface layer peeled back to reveal a layer of MDF. The peeling was only a little annoying, but to see that the inner layer was a composite was very annoying. It is my understanding that something called plywood should be layers of wood - which is what I was told at another lumber yard, where I recently bought some Baltic birch. Am I entitled to a refund, or do I just not understand what can and cannot be called "birch plywood"? November 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Standard quality I have to go threw the whole stack to find clear pieces. There is some quality control issues with the lamination. It is not a solid core as I have found gaps. Otherwise it is good product. I have used a few of these. I use them when restoring vintage trailers. November 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Plywood is never the final thickness listed. If you want true 1/4" try MDF. This is standard 1/4" plywood which the actual size is 7/32, it is always stamped on the face. Plywood also swells and contracts its thickness and you have to account for a tolerance of at least 1/32 or so. October 2, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not even close to 1/4". Not even close to 1/4". Actual thickness is much thinner than stated. Home depot should check their products first. May 14, 2012
