Hello Jeof,
The store can make cuts for you on the panel. You should talk with a store associate on the cost to make the cuts. You can also find project panels that are already cut in many different species, thickness & sizes on HomeDepot.com.

Answer: 
It can be used for boats if you choose the best plywood out of the bunch with more plys, little to none voids and then you will want to treat the wood lay fiberglass over both sides and the corners. Basically Marine grade type plywood it's all about the plys and the glue. Check out on the tube all the tests that was made with regular plywood against marine grade, you'll be very surprised

Answer: 
No, this plywood de-laminated in the time it took to get from the in-store ripping saw to my car. Maybe it was 70% humidity out that day. I think the lake / pond / ocean will have a higher humidity. I'm just glad I noticed before driving away with the product. Split right in half, not just the veneer coming off.

Answer: 
Hello,
The ¾” Red Oak isn’t intended for full exposure to water. It’s produced with a water resistant glue – but not a waterproof glue. Typical applications for decorative hardwood plywood includes cabinetry, shelving, etc. Your application requires a special marine grade plywood.

The plywood is intended for interior applications. It is not recommended for exterior applications. The glue used to bond the layers is water resistant – but not waterproof. Max breaking force for a sample of 3 in. x 18 in. is 400 lbs. of pressure.

3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Red Oak Plywood is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Wood laminate in a 4x8 sheet I had not been exposed to this product before seeing it on Home Depot website. I ordered this in order to make bean bag toss boards and it worked perfectly. the three quarter inch thick material is sturdy and rigid and the laminate surface has nice wood grain pattern to it. One thing I would recommend is picking it up at the store versus having it shipped because mine had the edges roughed up evidently during shipment, otherwise no complaints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money if you're looking for appearance grade Don't use this product unless you plan to fill and paint your work! Numerous voids in laminate layers, including immediately below veneer. Veneer bond delaminates when cut, even with a new blade. Veneer thickness (measured 0.017 - 0.023") is less than localized warp, so can't even be sanded smooth.
Date published: 2016-02-17
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inspect carefully before purchase You must inspect and carefully choose your sheets. I inspected 30 sheets to get 8 good ones. It's better if you know how your going to cut them also before choosing. Project was 16' of oak bookshelves.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Quality I recently Purchased several sheets of plywood for a living room project. Normally I do not buy my plywood there but several years ago I did and liked the product. On inspection the top 2 sheets clearly had manufacturing issues including large areas of visible repairs, warping, waves, and voids. I was about to leave when I sales person offered help. So we went down several sheets until we found one that looked good. (of note I also purchased the damaged sheets at a discount for a shop project). SO when I got the sheets home and started to work with them a number of issues came up (of note the following was with the "good Sheet". -The veneer was paper thin and tore/splintered badly despite a good blade, zero clearance insert, and tape at the cut line. -the plys ripped themselves apart (both clean and rough separations at the plys) despite large pilot hole drilled when using brad nails or screws. this created irregular thickness making it hard to accurately apply trim. -Despite good looking veneers large voids were found under it resulting in dents and cracking of the veneer with handling Please note the customer service was fantastic. Only the product was problematic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Store #528 I have purchase many items at this store over the past 10 years. Customer service is always great! The online order/pickup is the way to go, especially on larger orders! On this particular item, I called them after the order to request it to be cut in 5 panels of specific size. No problem. Bambi was awesome and worked with me to ensure she had the right dimensions! This store rocks and the service is why I keep coming back to this home depot! Congrats to the store (#528) for excellent service over the years!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good product I would like to start by saying, I did not purchase this product because of a low price point, quite the opposite. I requested and thought I had purchased the highest quality product for my job. However it seems Homedepot does not carry a quality Oak Plywood product. I purchased this plywood to use as a counter top on a custom built in over my washer and dryer. After fitting,installing edge trim and 2 coats of stain with 2 coats of Poly, spots started popping up were the wood veneer would indent and splinter. I have started filling with wood filler but am not confident this will work. Will most likely have to scrap the countertop and hours of work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good and easy to use I have made several projects with this plywood. One of my favorites is a portable bar for serving my homebrewed beer. The top is 3/4" red oak plywood and the sides are 1/2' birch plywood to reduce weight. I used several coats of Watco Danish oil on the whole thing with a few extra on the top. The bar is several years old and has survived many weddings, homebrew festivals, and backyard parties. The plywood is still straight and looks good even after being soaked in beer. I liked it so much I used it to build custom closets and just started on a new head board. With some creativity hiding the cut edge is easy to cover and is much cheaper than solid oak. Just use a sharp saw blade with a high number of teeth and it wont damage the veneer. I use an 80 tooth and don't rush the wood through the saw.
Date published: 2016-03-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD PLYWOOD One of the first things I noticed about the Purebond 3/4in Red Oak Plywood was the absence of the chemical smell, usually common with fresh plywood. Even more surprising was actually smelling the scent of wood when sawing. The sheet I used to build a tool cart had no significant voids in the substrate and did not warp after cutting. The perfect oak grain on the veneer showed no sign of "patching" on either side - but it is thin and requires extra care to prevent chipping by the saw blade.
