23/32 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Poplar Plywood is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 17.

That was a good decision because everything the reviews said turned out to be true. The edges WILL chip when you cut it. The top layer of ply WILL fray if sanded with a power sander. You MUST prime it with an oil based primer if your project requires a smooth surface. I'm building a TV stand that will be painted. I have constructed everything and primed the wood with Kilz interior oil-based primer. Next step is paint with Behr interior oil-based paint then finally adding drawer pulls. I used 1 1/2" SPAX screws. The screws beautifully into this plywood . SPAX says that their screws do not require pilot holes but I drilled pilot holes anyway. In addition to screwing the joints I used Titebond 3 wood glue. The plywood took the glue great. If you make sure to listen to the product reviews your project will turn out great. A wise man once said 'You can't get blood out of a stone'.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for those Painted Projects Don't expect cabinet-grade plywood here. It’s a 5-ply with thin veneers. Being someone who pockets these materials in dadoes, what I found most interesting was the high variation in thickness throughout the board. The nominal thickness measured in at 0.718" but varied from 0.702 to 0.731" ... and that leaves a lot of "grinning" when the dado set is dialed in for the minimum value. So materials like this are best-suited for pocket hole joinery to a face frame. Being poplar, you're not going to stain it ... so the fact that it's not 'stain-grade' is moot. However, it will absolutely perfect for the blanket chest I'm starting on, trimmed out with poplar board and trim. The finish is superior to the birch panels I received. I'd say 120 finish on the 'good' side and 180 finish on the 'better' side. Definitely a great foundation for painting with minimum prep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cabinetmaker loves it I buy it 10 sheets at a time. Very good paint grade plywood for cabinetmaking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product at a good price This is my second time to use Purebond plywood on a project, and I am once again very happy with the product. I have read other reviewers talk about voids and thin veneer, but as of yet the three different batches of Purebond I’ve used haven’t presented that issue. The plywood cuts easily with a 140 tooth circular saw blade, and is easy on the blade. The poplar I am using for this project has a super smooth finish, and as this project will be painted that is a plus. I did stain a small area to show how this plywood would appear when stained. Overall in my experience this is a quality product at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Not sure what some of the other reviewers issues are. I build custom cabinets and furniture. I've used 20 sheets of this plywood the last two months for paint grade cabinets and several of the same brand in maple prior for stain grade. Also used a higher priced domestic maple last year from another store as a comparison. -I cut it with a 24tooth blade on a skill saw with a clamp on strait edge and had no problems with splintering. -Takes paint or stain just as good as higher priced sheets. I used Zinsser bulls eye 123 as primer for the paint grade with no issues. -Of the 20 sheets of poplar I did have 1 sheet with a small void in the core, nothing filler can't fix easily. No problems with the maple. -Made in the US, and only costs $40 a sheet ... compared to $100-$120 a sheet other companies charge for a domestic hardwood. -As paint grade much better quality product than the sande plywood, at same pricing. Overall I think its a good product and will use in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for my project After searching several stores in my area, only Home Depot carried this product in poplar. It was straight and of good quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from arrived warped I normally go to a sheet goods supplier and buy my plywood which means that I have to drive there then help load it into my truck then unload it when I get to my shop so I ordered this plywood online so it could be delivered to my shop. It was packed very well which was good because plywood edges are easily damaged. The plywood was not flat when I unpacked it so that was a disappointment. I was going to use it on a customer's cabinets but I will probably use it for building cabinets or a workbench for my shop as I don't want to risk using warped plywood on a customer's job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Plywood, especially the Green Factor I purchased the poplar purebond for use in making a new desktop. Wanted to try it out before I bought a lot more of it. I read about it on several woodworking site and thought I would give it a try. It works really well, and I had almost no voids in it. The top came out great, and took a little white washing and poly wonderfully. HD also cut it for me to about the size I needed which was very helpful. One thing to remember is Plywood is graded, and purebond offers multiple grades. The lover ones such as C and D are more construction grade. I think the sheet I got was an A/B, the top face was flawless. I did read some people complaining about other variation of this product but they where using the wrong product for their project.
