will Home Depot cut my plywood for me

cut plywood
Asked by: keith
I would call your local store and ask that info. I know the store I go too cuts wood, but there is a limit to how many cuts per piece before they charge for cuts.

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.

How thick is the veneer layer? Is it a "show" veneer on both faces?

Asked by: eri3c
It is not show veneer on both faces, only 1 face has good quality veneer though a couple pieces I got the back face was close to the front.

3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood (FSC Certified) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 32.
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 5 out of 5 by from It's C3 plywood This is C3 plywood folks. That means you'll see more repaired knots and voids on a sheet, and some defects will be left as is. This type of plywood grade is a good choice for projects where you won't necessarily need a 'show' finish. I used this plywood for approx 100lf of garage cabinets. I did not experience any delamination, excessive voids nor sand through. Anyone looking at this plywood for fine furniture should be looking for A1 grade plywood

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff The 3/4 in Birch Plywood is perfect for making storage item, cabinets, etc. Easy to cut using my saw with the Rockwell cutting attachment to cut pieces to size. The plywood needs just a light sanding to provide a smooth surface (Except for the foot prints delivery company walked on top of the first piece. Easy to glue/nail finish strips to raw edges to give a more finish look to completed project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice grain look This sheet of birch has a nice grain finish to it that goes the 8 ft. length. It is made of 5 layers. Some of the 4 ft. end layers have about a 1/2" space in them. With a good sharp blade this cuts very nice and smooth. When staining it takes the stain very well and evenly. This is a nice piece of plywood to work with and makes a quality looking project in the end.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened to your product? I used a half dozen sheets of the 3/4" birch with great success over the last year. The only problem was one void about 3/4" x 6" long just under the veneer. (It was on an assembly table so I didn't worry too much about it) Two weeks ago I purchased another sheet and ripped it into panels for a cabinet. It bowed so badly I could not get it to line up with my face frame that I had drilled with my Festool domino. I ended up taking it back and after some back and forth with HD they reluctantly took it back. I went through the stack for a replacement and thought I had a winner. I brought that home and ripped my panels again. I was able to use about half of the sheet as the other half bowed and twisted so badly it was only usable for thin nail/support strips. Overall, wasted over a half day and still have a lot of that panel virtually unusable. Very disappointed as I thought this product was going to be my "go to" plywood for cabinets....Looks like I need to drive 45min to an actual wood supplier to get some decent ply now.

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.
