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.

The natural warmth and beauty of real maple gives the top and bottom veneers 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.

It is very well packaged. Heavy cardboard box and then sandwiched between two stiff cardboard sheets.
The one I got came with no dings or damage to the edges. I wouldn't hesitate to have one shipped.

Answer: 
Yes Todd, the surface grain runs parallel down the length of the plywood. Several of the inner layers grain lay crosswise to the surface layer, which is what gives it its strength. Also the surface layer is "VERY" thin, which is common in good furniture grade plywood. Use a fine tooth blade to rip and be careful cross cutting the outer layer chips easly. I use a 100 or 120 tooth very sharp carbide Read More

Plywood is not really designed to product those finished edge results.
In attempting to do this, I'm almost certain you'll be disappointed with the results.
With that said, this doesn't mean you can't achieve a smooth, finished edge in plywood. Just about every woodworker out there achieves this type of finished edge in plywood by applying a band / trim-piece of wood over the edge of the plywood.
In your case, you would simply obtain a trim piece of 1" x 1" or 2" high strip of maple and the length of your edge, and glue and tack it along the edges of your plywood. From there, you can then use your router to produce your edge on that trim piece.
That's the way to route an edge in plywood.

Answer: 
Hello R5mom,
The edges of the plywood are best trimmed with solid lumber or some type of edge banding. If you would like a small sample to test – contact Kevin at kcrisp@cfpwood.com and we will get you something to test.

Answer: 
I can't see using 2' x 4' sections of plywood for this, wouldn't they be too small? But it is structurally very high quality and would easily support you without significant deflection. I assume that you want something 6 feet or longer and almost any 3/4" plywood would be strong enough when supported by the ends and sides of a standard bathtub. No 1x2x4 needed.

Answer: 
Hello Ms Scats,
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. The 3/4 in. x 2 ft. x 4 ft. Maple Plywood is very rigid. Intended application for the panel is for cabinetry, shelving and similar applications.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice enough for Furniture I was really surprised at the nice smooth finish on this piece of plywood. One side is smoother than the other. It is nice enough to use for furniture. Since this was mailed, one of the corners was a little banged up. You can see the crunched corner of the box in the photo. Both sides of the plywood were clean and had no knots. The smoother side has one panel that is a little darker than the others. The Maple bond is about 1/32" thick. Since this is 3/4" thick, it is a nice heavy piece of plywood. I'd recommend this, but you'd need to check each piece of wood for flaws. April 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by decent product Product was as described in web page , plywood sheets were uniform, edges were cut square and clean, Shipping package was properly protected and product arrived without damage. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty piece of plywood Really liking the look of this piece of plywood. Nice grain. Not too prominent nor is it curly or figured. Just looks good. The project panel plywoods all appear to be of very good quality, and so is this one. I've yet to come across any significant voids or blemishes, only ran into one (on another sheet) and that was less than 1/32" and was in one of the interior plys. Having it shipped is a great way to go. Comes packaged in good cardboard and sandwiched between two sheets of very still cardboard. No dings or frayed edges. I don't think I could pick one up at the store and get it home in the same condition. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product Delivery was prompt, packing very good, and the panel better than advertized. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Quality Plywood for Projects Ordered 5 pieces of maple plywood (3/4" x 2' x 4') to be cut down and painted for shelving. The material arrived earlier than expected and in excellent condition. No dents, dings or broken corners. All 4 cut edges were square and in good condition with one or two very small voids showing. The panels were all a full 2 feet wide by 4 feet long. Both flat sides were sanded but one was obviously the better side, having no plugs or undesirable markings. The opposite sides showed a few dark color variations that stood out but I found no patches on these sides, either. After ripping the sheets to shelf width, I did find a few small voids that led to a quality score of 4 but I planned to edge-band the shelves and the voids were not a problem. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this! I purchased a full sheet to use on some end tables that I was building. This wood is beautiful and I love that it is safe for my family. I used it for the bottom shelves and the tops of my tables. I ended up staining the tops with an Oak stain followed by just a little bit of Kona that I wiped off immediately. I ended up looking great! I would definitely recommend Purebond. December 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Better than expected, but room for improvement I ordered two of the panels for a desk top for a maple computer desk project. I wanted to look at the panels in the store to see what to expect, but they were not available. So I ordered on-line, based on the previous product reviews. The packaging surprised me -- two 2x4' boards in a cardboard box...no protection, no plastic wrap, or bubble wrap of any kind. They were delivered on a misty day on the covered front porch of my house. When I got home to bring them in the house, the top of the box (the skinny end) was wet. I brought the box into the house and left it to dry until the next day. I took the boards out and looked them over -- a couple of small chips in the veneer on the edge, and the corners were less sharp than I would have liked. When I stood the boards up back to back I could see some warpage, a gap of about 1/4" in the center between the boards. Not happy, but I left the boards in the basement for a week, and they flattened out well. Overall, a decent quality product for the price, good enough for my woodworking skills anyway. An small update of packaging for shipment would go a long way. March 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love Columbia Forest Products Plywood !!! Columbia Forest Products provides some of the best quality plywood panels I've found in manageable sizes. I've used both their Primed, and Unfinished Popular, and now this Maple panel. I've not had an issue with anything I've received from them. The packaging of each panel shows their attention to quality. Each panel sent to me was inside a very strong box. Sandwiching the panel was also stiff sheets of cardboard. There was absolutely no damage whatsoever with any of the panels I've gotten from them. Shipping, and receipt was super quick as well...Like, a few days! This Maple panel has unfinished maple veneer on both sides. The grain is really nice, no voids, no cracks, no laminate separation, and no warping. I would honestly be hard pressed to find as nice a panel in the store. I'm looking forward to incorporating this into one of my projects. Extremely satisfied, and Highly Recommended!!!
