Unleash your inner craftsman and build beautiful hardwood-faced creations with this PureBond Red Oak Plywood Project Panel from Columbia Forest Products. Harvested in a sustainable manner from a domestic forest, the red oak timber used for the decorative veneers is rotary-cut to exacting standards for an exquisite hardwood appearance that works splendidly on any furniture or cabinetry piece. This 3/4 in. x 2 ft. x 4 ft. panel is comprised of 100% natural wood and assembled with a soy-based, formaldehyde-free PureBond technology that won’t subject interior environs to any toxic off-gassing, as UF-constructed panels are susceptible to do. The yellow poplar core substrate is layered in alternating cross bands with the red oak veneers, augmenting the rigidity, strength and flatness you expect from hardwood for lasting durability and enduring beauty. This 7-ply decorative plywood is a cost-competitive alternative to formaldehyde-laden panels and won't degrade the air quality of your home or business over time.

California residents: see   Proposition 65 information

Answer: 
It’s a water-resistant compilation that tolerates moisture better than formaldehyde-bonded plywood, while the 7-ply layering makes it less likely to warp than solid hardwood. The decorative hardwood panel is assembled with a soy-based PureBond adhesive that won’t emit airborne contaminants over time, as UF-constructed plywood is prone to do.

Hard to tell what they have used as an adhesive, but a high degree of regulation has eliminated most toxins in plywood...or at least the formaldehyde which off-gasses and makes people and animals sick.
Still, I would not recommend this for a chicken coop. It is not exterior grade for one thing, and you are paying a lot for red oak veneer that is just going to peel off in the weather. Look for an Read More

Still, I would not recommend this for a chicken coop. It is not exterior grade for one thing, and you are paying a lot for red oak veneer that is just going to peel off in the weather. Look for an exterior grade plywood, or better, use solid lumber to build your coop and nesting boxes. I'd recommend 1x6 T&G siding instead of plywood. More expensive, and requires more care in design and construction, but you'll get a nicer home for your girls and no worries about gassing them, or exposing them to the ingestion of possible toxins from exterior grade plywood.

I can't comment on the adhesives used, however this plywood would not not hold up well to the elements. The core is MDF. I would suggest a marine grade plywood

Answer: 
I'm not sure what you mean by that. I would think a chicken coop would need exterior grade (water resistant) plywood sheathing. I know from experience this stuff will fall apart with repeated moisture exposure and couldn't recommend it for outdoor applications.

Answer: 
I just built one last year and used Regular 2x4 and 4x4 pieces of pine. NOT the pressure treated kind that's full of chemicals. The wood is not as hard as pressure treated, but works just as well for a coup. The birds never come in contact with it anyway. I built a 10x10x8h palace with a plywood roof on it, made the rest of chicken wire and enclosed it on one side with plywood to protect from the wind. Read More
I just built one last year and used Regular 2x4 and 4x4 pieces of pine. NOT the pressure treated kind that's full of chemicals. The wood is not as hard as pressure treated, but works just as well for a coup. The birds never come in contact with it anyway. I built a 10x10x8h palace with a plywood roof on it, made the rest of chicken wire and enclosed it on one side with plywood to protect from the wind. It sits up against a concrete wall so its only open on the front with the split, barn type door and on the side that is protected by a pine forest. I also have another coup inside there where the hens walk up a ramp and lay their eggs in 6 smaller boxes. My ducks who like nesting on the ground, have an area surrounded by bales of hay that's covered by a tarp, that they can nest under, kind of like a doghouse made of hay. It seems to be warm enough in the winter for everyone and there is plenty of room for the 6 ducks, 5 hens, and a rooster. For roosting, make sure you use natural tree branches with the bark on them, and make sure they are varied in circumference. A dowel stick is bad for their feet and gives them arthritis. Read Less

Answer: 
Staining will enhance the grain however do not use a dark stain as it may "cover the grain". I would recommend a clear sealer, semi-gloss or gloss in order to maintain the natural look of the wood.

Answer: 
Yes, you may stain these panels. The different colors of stain will give you a variety of looks making the grain appear more rich. Even a clear sealer will bring the grain out for a great look.

Hello,
Would not recommend using the Red Oak for flooring. It has a thin decorative red oak layer that is not intended to be used for a floor. The intended application is for cabinets, built-ins, shelving, etc.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Plywood Project Panel This 3/4in.x 2ft.x4ft. Red Oak 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. It’s a water-resistant compilation that tolerates moisture better than formaldehyde-bonded plywood, while the 7-ply layering makes it less likely to warp than solid hardwood. The decorative hardwood panel is assembled with a soy-based PureBond adhesive that won’t emit airborne contaminants over time, as UF-constructed plywood is prone to do. These panels are available in larger sizes. February 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Overall, this was a very good quality sheet of plywood. The veener did have one damaged spot (see photo), hence 4 stars. Otherwise it was a very good sheet and was very flat. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just the right size you need for projects. Here's a product that comes in just the size you need without having to deal with full sheets, extra expense, and waste. It's easier to transport, and not too heavy. I received one of the 2x4 panels, Red Oak, in 3/4" thickness. The 3/4" ply was strong enough to be used as shelving and would work fine for any type of sturdy application. Be sure to use a fine plywood blade in the circular saw to get a nice fine cut, with very little splintering. Edges sanded fine. Veneer is a good thickness. I did not have a chance to finish mine yet, but it appears that both sides of this sheet are ready for some stain and several coats of Varathane (or equivalent). Good quality grain. It handled screws with no issues so the quality of the laminates and layers were good (no pockets). Overall, it got the job done, and looks great to boot! February 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, convenient size, nice to have it delivered. This is unfinished plywood. The outer veneers appear to be rotary sliced. There is definitely an A side and a B side. Wood is a natural product. No two sheets, or even sides of a single sheet of plywood are going to be the same. If you have a project where grain pattern is really critical and you need two good sides, you might want to hand pick your plywood rather than ordering it on line. For big projects, I'll still engage a helper to keep me company on the drive and to help me wrestle full sized sheets into and around the shop. But for small projects, I sure like getting these smaller panels delivered to my door, and the price premium is a fair trade for the driving time, and for the muscle strain. March 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JUST WHAT WAS NEEDED! These were bought to make and have a mobile workbench, and have worked out great. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a great purchase Quarter panel is well sanded, veneer was fine both sides, only miner voids in plies. overall quite acceptable. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My favorite plywood This isn't the typical plywood you find in home centers. This is excellent quality veneered plywood. I really like the MDF cores. It keeps the sheet really flat. It does make it a bit heavier, but that is an advantage in some situations. The veneers on both faces are excellent; but one side is slightly nicer than the other. I chopped this piece up pretty good and was not able to find a single void Highly recommended October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great bookshelves I got these thicker pieces to make some bookshelves in my computer room because I needed a custom made built in, instead of a standard sized bookcase which I had no room for. I liked the fact that the red oak matched my desk and the shelves were installed in a cut out to the right of where I sit, making it convenient. The wood was easy to work with, having to just make a single cut with the circular saw. It was easy to sand, looked great and I only had to apply a light coat of red oak stain and Varithane to make it match my desk. Now I have the shelves FULL of much needed books and don't have to worry if its strong enough. Definitely suited my needs in a pinch. Nice plywood for projects too. I will order more for some outdoor projects next spring. November 4, 2013
