If I order online will I received an authentic Purebond Product? How is it packaged? Return ease if damaged.

If I order this online (since not in stores) will I actually received the Purebond Product? I recently went to 3 of my local HD's for Purebond birch plywood and they had another brand in stock (Swaner Hardwood) which did not look to be as of good of quality as Columbia Forest. How is it packaged? If there is damage how easy is it to return? As I would not have a way to get it to my local HD (the larger sizes).
Asked by: SignMaker
Hello, Yes, this will be a PureBond product. We package the product in a very rigid cardboard box that has triple protection around the corners of the panel. Return process is noted on the packing slip in the box. You can call customer service to have the package picked up if you are not happy with it. Thank you for the interest in our PureBond products.

3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 4 ft. PureBond Pre-Primed Poplar Plywood Project Panel (Free Custom Cut Available) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Plywood with a Valuable Prime I'm building numerous base and wall cabinets for my garage workshop project. I've got about 28 feet of wall space at nine feet high, so about 14 cabinets each of base (34 inches high) and wall (48 inches high), about two feet wide each. I was doing two coats of primer and one coat of white. I tried some of this pre-primed plywood. This is really a HUGE time-saver. Any plywood with a veneer really soaks up any kind of finish, so having one coat already done was perfect. Also, I think the primer helps in the cuts, as I wasn't getting near as much tear-out. I'm using good tools and techniques, so I was surprised I was getting better results. I'll definitely be using this in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very straight, strong wood I used this wood to build a high end looking linen cabinet. We used the 3/4 inch thickness for the sides, both for support and good looks. It's very very smooth, very straight and strong piece of wood. It cut nicely with a sharp blade and the pre primed surface took the paint very nicely. I also used this same wood in the 1/2" thickness for the shelves, and they came out beautiful. I would highly recommend this wood for fine woodworking projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality, good wood This is a beautiful piece of wood, perfect for a woodworking project, such as building a high-end looking linen cabinet, like we did. I used this for the shelving and it was easy to cut (using a sharp blade of course), very smooth, and the paint adhered nicely to the pre-primed surface. Very sturdy and smooth, nice looking piece of wood. I also used the 3/4 inch preprimed poplar plywood for the sides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from 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 3 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Really Handy Stuff Pre Primed poplar Plywood. Strong, lightweight, stable stuff. Great to have around in a small shop where it is awkward to handle or store large panels. Cost is slightly higher compared to a full sheet, cut into fourths, but the extra cost is well worth it if your shop situation prevents you from storing or handling larger sheets. It is flat, smooth and clean, and I found no voids in any inner plies. Takes paint well.
