will Home Depot cut my plywood for me

cut plywood
Asked by: keith
Hi, I'm happy to answer your question. Yes, Home depot does cut wood. How ever they do not offer precision cuts, so the tolerance is 1/2 inch to any and all cuts for the dimensions requested. Unless other arrangements are made with your local home depot, all cutting requests must be made in store at time of purchase. The amount of free cuts varys by location, please contact your local home depot for more information on their policy.

Customer Reviews

1/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood (FSC Certified) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 88.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Plywood I have been woodworking for a number of years now, first as a framer not as a finish carpenter, and this PureBond Birch from my latest project was phenomenal. There are very few voids in the plys, the faces were smooth and held up great to cutting. The plywood was also flat and not bowed, which was great for the display cabinet I was building. Even though this plywood cost a little more the quality makes it worth it, as well has not having formaldehyde or other toxins just an added bonus. From here on all my plywood projects will include PureBond! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I spent 20 minutes going through a stack to find a piece that wasn't scratched and severely warped. The were stacked so poorly that the whole lot should be thrown out. A piece that I thought was good turned out to be not so much. After staining there was a visible line on both sides of the plywood from what I couldn't figure out. Kind of looked like it got stuck in a drum sander. I tried hand sanding lightly with some 220 and went right through the veneer. There were lots of visible voids on the edges too after I cut it. It also curled up after cutting. This thing is going in the trash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Plywood This is some quality plywood, especially in todays world of corner cutting etc. Very few voids and repair spots. I used this sheet to make some boards, 2' x 4' for corn hole games and they came out great. I was going to snap a couple of pics before I sent them to the painters but forgot. I used some Kreg Joints on the frame so the top had no screw holes in it. Made for a great finished product, that I expect to last for years. Sanding was minimal because these will be painted, but I have stained this plywood as well and it comes out beautiful. I will snap pics, and edit post when they come back from the painters. They will be KC Chiefs colors for those interested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent plywood especially for indoor projects! I have young children and I enjoy building furniture for them as they grow. I really like using the PureBond Birch plywood in my projects for them. The veneer layer is always smooth and clear and I have yet to find a void in the inner plys. The fact that it's formaldehyde-free puts my mind at ease knowing it's one less thing to worry about when building a bed or dresser that my children will be around often. The best part is it's easy to pick up at my local Home Depot! I never have to travel far to restock! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best you can buy so why buy what you pay for??!?! Overall it's a very stable product. I'm not one of those so-called "green"  type people but breaking down this formaldehyde-free soy based product you will notice a much more pleasant work environment. Cuts easier then readily available sheet good. It moves past the blade easily while leaving little to no chip out. As long and recent mineral voids are not toovisible, this project is perfect. Great stuff and first choice. Give it a time ry,  you won't regret it.  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PureBond for the Win! Regular plywood just wasn’t cutting it. While searching for quality material to utilize for our various projects, we discovered that PureBond Plywood is the very best plywood available at the big box stores. PureBond plywood is now our top choice for any projects that require plywood. We have used PureBond plywood to make toy boxes, custom wooden signs, drawers, workbenches, and more! Not only is the quality great, but it is also environmentally friendly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Enjoyable Project! I just built a bunk bed for my two daughters out of PureBond plywood and what a fun project! This plywood was a pleasure to work with; the birch veneer is high quality and beautifully matched, the core is solid and stable, and the material is very consistent. I chose to leave the edges exposed as part of the overall design and because the inner plys are so solid and the edges finished very well. The material stained and finished beautifully. Buying an American made product without formaldehyde couldn't be better for a project for my home and daughters. I have several places smaller pieces left that will go into more projects to come and I will be getting more for some cabinets next. I highly recommend this for your next project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible plywood I recently build a desk for me 7yr old son to do homework. I made it out of 3/4 Purebond birch plywood. I was extremely pleased and impressed with the high quality product that Purebond manufactures. There were absolutely no voids in the plywood. The veneers were flawless, they sanded well, and more importantly took stain evenly without any splotches. I would highly recommend this product to anyone making their products. Well done Purebond.
