Cedar has long been sought-after for its visual allure and scented properties. Those intrinsic qualities splendidly emerge from this PureBond Aromatic Cedar Plywood Project Panel from Columbia Forest Products. Cut from sustainably harvested American hardwoods, it features decorative veneers that will delight the senses and ignite your passion for woodworking. It’s a cost-effective way to incorporate the natural warmth and beauty of cedar into stunning carpentry pieces like workbenches, coffee tables, wall panels, toy chests, shelves, drawers, cabinets, bookcases and more. Assembled with a soy-based PureBond technology, each 7-ply panel is made entirely of wood, including core veneers laid in alternating cross bands for superb strength, flatness and endurance. Sans formaldehyde, the food-grade technology will not off-gas toxic fumes during fabrication or after installation, as UF-constructed plywood commonly does. Its veneered construction makes it less likely to warp than solid hardwood, making it an exquisite choice for your next masterpiece.

Customer Questions & Answers

To confirm, these panels are veneered on both sides?

Asked by: Mike
Yes, premium veneer on both sides. The knots are pretty, not just filled voids. Great product.

Asked by: CHICA
I would say no because the cedar is a very thin veneer and will definitely crack and break under foot traffic.

Can this be used as a counter-top?

Interested in going over my old laminate counter-top with this to match the cabinets. Just want to make sure it's going to be safe for this particular application.
Asked by: Jay
It will not make a good counter top, for it will absorb moisture, food, oils and anything set upon it. If you really like its looks, you could cover it with three coats of clear floor epoxy, which I've used on wood tables, and it will not absorb anything, but you will lose its aroma.

Can this be used to line a sauna?

Asked by: Geez
I believe you could use this to line a sauna, however, the material you are planning to use underneath is just as important for its resistance to moisture............Cedar has always been a popular wood choice for both traditional and infrared saunas because of its natural resistance to moisture. Cedar will not expand or contract as much as other woods when temperature fluctuates, meaning that it is less likely to bend and warp with regular (or commercial) use. Western Redwood Cedar is one of the world's most durable woods but can vary in quality. Using cedar throughout would be a good choice. -------> information drawn from

3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 4 ft. PureBond Aromatic Cedar Plywood Project Panel (Free Custom Cut Available) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful wood but has imperfections The cedar veneer on this panel is very thin so there are some imperfections that you may not be able to work around, depending on your project. I have a couple of areas where there are knots and when my piece arrived the pieces around the knot fell out, leaving the plywood visible. There are a couple of other imperfections where you can see the plywood as well so keep that in mind. Luckily, the project I'm working on allowed me to work around these issues. I didn't have any issues cutting. Having the right blade makes a big difference. Cedar tends to be expensive, so this is a great inexpensive way to get the look, and smell, of cedar for a project. It's also very light weight so it's easy to handle. The panel arrived very well packed and I didn't experience any shipping damage.

I'd not recommend it if someone is looking for a closet that will spell of cedar. The smell doesn't last for more than a few weeks even in a closed space. Other than that, is is a nice looking product.

The product arrived quickly and without any blemishes or dings........the scent isn't too overwhelming and worked well for a project humidor. I would recommend this product for anything that requires a cedar scented application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and beautiful I am glad Purebond is getting into this market of higher quality veneer plywoods. These are great with making specific wood projects where you can use hardwood along with the plywood veneer and keep the same wood species. The quality is what you would expect from a lumber yard. It cuts great, with limited tear out, and the grain patterns on the veneer are fantastic. They stain well. The only thing you have to watch out for is that the veneer is very thin to keep the weight down. Other than that, I fully endorse this product. Oh, and the aromatic cedar smells amazing! This would be a fantastic choice to line the inside of a clothing chest with, or use for draws, or even a humidor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cedar veneer over a poplar base As described, this is a thin cedar veneer over a poplar sub-base. You can definitely smell the cedar when you sand or cut the veneer, but it is thin and will splinter if you are not careful. Be sure to use the right type of saw blade. Working with this plywood, we did not detect any odor from the glue. We used it to build a small serving tray and it worked well. Do keep in mind, that only being a 1/4" thick, it has a tendency to bow.

I thought this would be a solid piece of cedar and it is not. It has a thin layer of cedar on the top and bottome of some other wood. It also has a lot of holes in the top layer where you can see the layer underneath. Overall for the price it was ok. Also be careful when you cut it and make sure to use a fine tooth saw because the top layer will chip easily. The top layer does look like cedar and it smells great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product The aromatic cedar plywood worked great as a liner for the cherry wood hope chest I'm building. I first tried to use tongue and groove cedar as a liner but it was difficult to get square. Your cedar plywood was easy to measure and cut, and the fit is nearly perfect! Thanks for a great, easy-to-use product.

I don't know why I was shocked when this product arrived well packaged in perfect condition. It's just weird to have plywood shipped to your home, but I couldn't find aromatic cedar plywood locally in 1/2" thickness. I used it for a large drawer bottom, and it really looks great. I'm a happy camper.
