Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnS Handy size
This panel is a handy size to work for smaller projects. I had a project where I needed to construct a sidewall to support several large, thin boxes of equipment. (A bookend so to speak).
The panel was just the right size. I did not have to cut it at all. And because it was primed, it saved lots of time because it was ready to paint.
Please note that while the plywood is primed on both sides, the edges are not primed. Also note that the primer is not necessarily a sealer, so there were a couple of wood knots that showed through the primer a bit. Have some primer available to do the edges and knots if needed. If you cut the panel, that cut edge will need to be primed anyway.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by enginerd Good for painted projects, but not ready-to-display
This plywood was dead flat, even after leaning at an odd angle against my workbench for over a week. The surface is continuous and free of positive material. The primer appears to have filled the knots, but it does not hide them. I didn't paint the project I used them for, but it looks like this primer would go a long way to keeping the oil from the knots bleeding through, requiring less paint, which would save time and money on larger projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Texas123 Really Nice
This poplar primed panel is simply outstanding!! The panel was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. While I normally expect a few end voids even in really nice plywood I was unable to find any on this piece. I have never seen a four foot piece of ply that was any flatter than this or any nicer. I would feel comfortable using this for almost any project. This piece come pre-primed so very little prep is required for paining. I can not imagine you being unhappy with this.
No end voids

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AHArtist Very happy with 3/4" panel
I ordered 2 panels, one 1/2" and one 3/4". I was very happy with the 3/4" panel (2 feet x 4 feet). It arrived perfectly flat and only one minor dent on a corner. The primer is very thin, but sufficient for painting. It was almost a shame to have to paint the panel because the quality was so much nicer than what is available in most stores. I only found one tiny void in all the cuts I made which is pretty rare in my experience. My only wish is that these were available at my local store! I used the 3/4" panel to make the box for 2 dog beds (along with some leftover wood I already had on hand).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Neuf350Z Bowed at both ends
I got this to make a cabinet door for a project I'm working on. Unfortunately, the panel is bowed on each end so it's useless to me. While I'm sure I'll find another use for the wood, I'm disappointed because it won't be used for what I meant to use it for. I probably wouldn't care as much if I could trim off the bowed sections, but it's a large door so that's not possible.
Because this isn't sold in stores, you can only hope that the piece that you get isn't bowed. Based on other reviews, it seems to be hit or miss.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by capnbobby Project size plywood
This 3/4in.x 2ft.x4ft. Pre-primed Poplar 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.
The 5 layers are Pure Bonded with a non formaldehyde glue.
These panels are available in larger sizes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeHandyman Quality wood for projects
I wanted a finish quality wood for a small home project. The panel is solidly constructed with a fine smooth finish. It has good color and grain dispersion. I did not use a stain or a finish on my panel but I think with the quality it would stain well. It is more economical to buy a full sheet but I have found for smaller projects that it is less effort and prep time to use smaller panel rather cutting down a large panel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AHArtist 1/2" panel bowed so horribly
I ordered the 1/2" panel which arrived so horribly bowed, that I cannot use it for any of the projects I wanted to make. The only thing I think I can do with it is use it for furring strips...maybe not even that. The 3/4" panel i ordered arrived in perfect condition in the same shipping box. Very disappointed, hopefully I just got unlucky with this particular panel.
