For DIYers and professional tradesmen who recognize the importance of going green and using natural timber harvested in a responsible manner, turn to this FSC-certified PureBond Birch Plywood from Columbia Forest Products. Each 7-ply sheet features decorative birch veneers on the face and back, which exhibit the warmth and beauty of natural hardwood to supply your carpentry creations with visual allure. Furthermore, the 3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. panels are manufactured with a soy-based PureBond technology that is formaldehyde-free so it won't deteriorate air quality, as is common with UF-constructed sheets that are susceptible to releasing airborne contaminants over time.

With an eye toward sustainability, Columbia takes pride in manufacturing this Earth-conscious product and takes seriously its responsibility in replenishing forests for future generations.

Shed construction Question

Hello, I am attempting to put some flooring in my shed. Will this wood be a solid choice if I already have a floor with gaps between each plank approximately 1/8" - 1/4". I want to seal up the floor from the weather, insects and critters.
Asked by: Brent
Hello Brent, glad to help. Wow! You will end up with one very nice shed floor! This stuff would work very well for you. I actually bought this to do that very same thing, but the wood was so nice I ended up making cabinets for my outbuilding with it! Go Figure... I chose to use Tongue & Groove OSB 3/4" sheets instead for the floor. But by all means this would work great & be VERY solid. Hope this helped.

Its not horrible, but its definitely not the greatest. Before I get to the bad I will tell you would thick that keeps me going back and buying this stuff. If you look through them you will find some sheets with really gorgeous grain that stains awesome. Other than that a lot of this stuff has voids all up and through it. They use a soy-based adhesive to bond the plies together which is great for the environment, but the stuff just doesn't seem stable or consistent. Like sometimes I will get a sheet of this stuff with strongly bonded plies and sometimes I will get a sheet with plies that easily separate from each other.

I spent 20 minutes going through a stack to find a piece that wasn't scratched and severely warped. The were stacked so poorly that the whole lot should be thrown out. A piece that I thought was good turned out to be not so much. After staining there was a visible line on both sides of the plywood from what I couldn't figure out. Kind of looked like it got stuck in a drum sander. I tried hand sanding lightly with some 220 and went right through the veneer. There were lots of visible voids on the edges too after I cut it. It also curled up after cutting. This thing is going in the trash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Plywood This is some quality plywood, especially in todays world of corner cutting etc. Very few voids and repair spots. I used this sheet to make some boards, 2' x 4' for corn hole games and they came out great. I was going to snap a couple of pics before I sent them to the painters but forgot. I used some Kreg Joints on the frame so the top had no screw holes in it. Made for a great finished product, that I expect to last for years. Sanding was minimal because these will be painted, but I have stained this plywood as well and it comes out beautiful. I will snap pics, and edit post when they come back from the painters. They will be KC Chiefs colors for those interested.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute junk I purchased six sheets of this for a project. Instead of the 15/32" thickness on the sticker, typical for 1/2" ply, it was in reality 3/8" thick (12/32). Of the six pieces, ONE was 14/32" (7/16") which I figured I could get away with for a small table. I cut out a table top and proceeded to rip the 3" skirt pieces for around the edge. The interior plys were NOT GLUED TOGETHER! For HALF the sheet! Glued to about 6" from the edges, but the entire center hadn't seen a drop. I've used this Birch "PureBond" from Home Depot for years...back when it was $33/sheet. I've probably gone through $5,000 of the stuff. Sure, I've seen the occasional void. But to shell out $250 for plywood, cut into the only sheet that meets (or at least comes close) to specs and find THIS little surprise?! Absolutely inexcusable. Absolute junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Beautiful! TOP QUALITY - Great For Making Laundry Room Cabinets I ordered this plywood to custom build my own cabinets due to the miss shaped kitchen walls. I was worried about ordering online, however they were shipped directly to my home without any issues! Communication was quick & friendly & helpful too. This Plywood is Absolute Top Quality! Smooth to the touch without any mars on the face at all. Very Hefty feel also and they weigh in at approximately 72-75 lbs each! Upon working with the sheet it cut well & held the fasteners quite well. Some Natural Timber Oil to bring out the grain & Voila - Awesome Laundry Room Storage!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PURE GARBAGE The only reason I am giving 1 star is because zero isnt an option. I am a professional cabinet maker with 25 years experience and this junk is not even "shop grade" or D grade material. Surface veneer has voids that dont appear until a finish is applied. Furthermore, there are areas that the veneer is so thin you can see through to the black glue layer below. I tried to return it but the store wouldnt give me a credit as I had cut the sheets. (About 10 total) If you are a professional that guarantees your product, DO NOT USE!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product OK, this is about the Columbia 3/4" (nominal) plywood sheets, I'd like to offer some comparisons here. Four years ago I did all the benches and shelves in my shop with Sande plywood. I didn't have any issues with delaminating or veneer tearout and the shop has seen a lot of use in the past four years with no issues as regards the items built with that plywood. I also did the interior cabinets of two RVs with the Birch Sande plywood and they both function and look great to this day. Recently (Dec 2015) I bought three sheets of the Columbia Bond 3/4" plywood to build a fold-up HO train table for my grandson. The Columbia veneer is quite thin, I believe about 1/42". Being this thin, an exceptionally good glue-bond is required to minimize tear-out on both cuts and holes that are drilled, even with appropriate backing to prevent tearout. A voidless substrate is also required immediately under the veneer in order to insure a continuous bonding surface. The Columbia Bond exhibited worse tearout than the Sande, both with cuts and drilling. I attribute this both to the veneer thinness and substandard glue and/or glue application in manufacture. It should also be noted that there are more voids in the Columbia product than in the Sande product I used four years ago, voids are more critical in the Columbia plywood as the 3/4" product is only five plys (which means each void is thicker/deeper) while the Sande is seven plys, minimizing the effect of any voids. Structurally, the Columbia Bond is, in my opinion, inferior to the Sande plywood I got from Home Depot four years ago, but I can't compare it to today's product since I haven't used any recently. I will say, however, that I will not be buying any more Columbia Bond plywood in the future, based on my most recent experience with it. I don't expect Baltic Birch from a big-box store, but I do expect a serviceable shop-grade plywood for fifty bucks a sheet, this product is neither.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Big box store birch plywood ToddNY- I don't know if you are aware but there is Birch plywood and Baltic Birch plywood. The big box chains sell Birch ply which has inner layer voids, while Baltic ply will not. I have used both. Sometimes when I cut the Birch ply to size I get lucky and miss most of the voids, but it will always be a crapshoot since they're random. The Birch ply works well on certain projects but it does have its limitations. The easiest way to visually tell the difference is to look at the ply count. Baltic Birch will have about 13 plys.
