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.

Answer: 
Personally, if dampness is an issue I wouldn't recommend using this plywood. It should be fine for a few years but beyond that I wouldn't trust it. Perhapys a layer of tyvek or hardy board between the ply and the subfloor would make it a viable solution.

Answer: 
Hi Brent,
This wood is not exterior grade, which is what you want for your application. It is also very expensive.
Look for exterior grade plywood with an A/C rating. This plywood has one good side which you can use face up for your shed floor.
Mike,

Answer: 
Whoa, whoa there... The answer is more complex. It really depends on how you want the cut edge to look. If you cut a VERY accurate miter angle, then these will mate up to a beautiful 90° corner.
But, if you're a bit off, then consider VERY CAREFULLY running a burnishing tool (the 'middle' part of a stout screwdriver would also do) along the "mating surfaces" of the miters.

Whoa, whoa there... The answer is more complex. It really depends on how you want the cut edge to look. If you cut a VERY accurate miter angle, then these will mate up to a beautiful 90° corner.
But, if you're a bit off, then consider VERY CAREFULLY running a burnishing tool (the 'middle' part of a stout screwdriver would also do) along the "mating surfaces" of the miters.
Do this carefully and you will literally (& lightly) 'crush' the face veneer (& the one below it) so that the mating surfaces now join perfectly, even though there was a little slop in there after the cut.
Now, if we're really talking about an EDGE instead of a corner, then if all you use is the plywood, you will show the veneers through. IF you don't want that, you are looking at 3 main solutions.
1) Glue or iron on a "veneer tape' and trim to thickness once dry.
2) Glue on a strip of hardwood and, once dry, sand/route the edge flush with the plywood thickness.
3) Similar to 2 above, use a set of dedicated router bits to cut a groove into the plywood and a 'point' into the edge of the hardwood edging. You will still have the routing/sanding to get all the edges flush, but this method has the advantage of making a greater surface area for the clue to bond with, making a far stronger decorative edge to the plywood. [As seen from the side, the two profiles look kind of like this...] ►Σ (that is, if those glyphs were to scale...)
Examples include the DR99032 & DR99033 offered by The Home Depot and a similar one (actually a set) by a company called "Whiteside".
Note: The HD version is ~ 16% cheaper than the Whiteside...

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Plywood without any off gassing First off I received two sheets of this plywood in addition to another order that was the thinner version. It was helpful that I was able to compare the product in general. It was shipped form a distance so I was not surprised that 1 of the boards on the outside was really banged up. I figure I can use this piece for a bottom or an unseen support etc. When looking at the better quality face, it was great looking and I would have no problem using it and having it being seen. This went for both boards even though one was banged up. The back varied a lot in the two boards. One back looked much lower grade while another back was almost face quality which was unexpected. My advice would be to look carefully, since its a natural product, choose the boards that fit your project. The plys on the boards I had where really good. The top plys where really thick and I had no problem sanding it down, etc. I found the plys when I cut where even and they all looked thicker than I tought. For the price, I think this is a good alternative to plywood if your looking for a greener plywood. For the quality make sure to look over the boards. August 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good for Carcasses Don't expect cabinet-grade plywood here. It's a 5-ply with thin veneers. Being someone who pockets these materials in dadoes, what I found most interesting was the high variation in thickness throughout the board. The nominal thickness measured in at 0.718" but varied from 0.702 to 0.731" ... and that leaves a lot of "grinning" when the dado set is dialed in for the minimum value. So materials like this are best-suited for pocket hole joinery to a face frame. Also, neither side was 'clear' and to my standards, not stain-grade. July 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very poor and unusable Not good. Got two loads of it in. Liked the first load until I started using it and the voids inside made it unusable for a finished product. Whole sections without anything under the laminate just made it like a bubble. As soon as it's cut, it deflates and gets ripples in it. Second shipment in just looked like bad period. Had to use it for paint only and even then, in areas that don't show. December 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our go-to plywood My wife and I run a small property business in southwestern Pennsylvania. We buy, renovate, rent, and sell homes. I am the licensed contractor of the outfit and head up our work crew. You’ve no doubt watched reality shows about real estate renovation in far more glamorous areas of the United States, where the action focuses around stylish investors who order around their tradesmen minions to do their bidding, flipping dumps into dreams quickety-quick, and never getting their hands dirty. I’ll ask you to believe that’s reality TV, not reality for an outfit like ours. There is an oversupply in our area of urban single-family homes built in the years between 1890-1930. The furnaces are antiques, the roofs leak, the wiring is completely outdated, the plaster is coming off the walls, and the plumbing always needs significant work, so basic repairs swallow up by necessity much of our renovation budgets. Despite these problems, I love these old homes. There is a permanence and pride of craftsmanship in them that you often can’t find in the more modern tract housing that dominated American residential construction in the post-WWII years. When it comes to replacing and renovating a lot of the woodwork in houses of this time period in this region, we go through a lot of 3/4-inch plywood. Houses of this period had quite a bit of heavy, plain square woodwork, most notably the American Foursquare type of home (we’ve worked in a number of homes of this type). The painted interior trim was built to last generations, and it mostly has, but in places where it’s failed, 3/4 sheet goods are typically what we make matching pieces out of. Similarly, built-in woodwork is generally quite heavy in these homes, and matching/repairing the existing and often extensive built-ins requires using 3/4-inch plywood. For quite some time, this PureBond Birch Plywood has been my choice for most paint-grade work. It’s the strongest hardwood plywood Home Depot sells, there aren’t many voids in the plies, and the edge covers beautifully with edge tape or, more usually for us for paint-grade pieces, Durham’s Water Putty. I utilize a lot of pocket-hole joinery and this stuff holds coarse-threaded Kreg screws beautifully. The plywood takes oil-based primer and paint readily, and holds up to the humidity and temperature changes common to old homes in the area when run close to windows and doors. It cuts and drills very well with the appropriate fine-finish saw blades and brad-point or Forstner drill bits, and I have no complaints about how easily it accepts being worked with a good block plane. Finally, the plywood takes oil-based primer and paint readily, and really holds up to the humidity and temperature changes common to old homes in the area when run close to windows and doors. All these things make this PureBond Birch Plywood the best general-purpose 3/4 plywood for our business’s trim, furniture, and built-in needs. I can’t count the number of simple cabinet carcasses I’ve made out of this. I have another local plywood supplier for other needs, but I would say that at least 80% of our hardwood plywood needs are met with this readily available product. For most professionals and DIYers, this is great stuff if you want hardwood plywood for general trim or furniture work and aren’t an enthusiast producing stain-grade custom pieces. June 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No problems I used the plywood to redo my closet. It did the job and looks great. We did not my stain it because my wife loves the why the burch looked. I even made drawer fronts with it and routed the edges. Well worth the price for this product. July 26, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok quality but I wish it was actually 3/4" thick. I normally purchase my sheet goods at a local lumberyard. Purebond was reocmmended to me because the glue is formaldehyde free and I'm looking to make greener choices in my building. I made the stupid mistake of not measuring the thickness of the plywood. I spent a long time making exact cuts to minimize waste then fast forward to me assembling my project and my width cuts don't fit by 1/8". If you're a novice DIY'er like me please note that even though it has 3/4" stamped on the side of it, It' not 3/4 " thick. Sure wish I had not used glue. March 31, 2014
