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.

Answer: 
Hello Al,
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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good material for cabinet building This material is very nice for the most part. I had some voids in the material when cutting but the sanded face side was completely knot free on all 3 sheets that I got. Luckily I had already planned on painting the cabinet so this wasn't an issue for me as I could just fill the spots in and sand them. You'll want to look at the sheet of plywood to make sure all 4 corners are good and that the sanded face sheet is free of damage. Stuff does get damaged in shipment or at the store when they are putting it on the rack or people drop it....etc. I made a base cabinet for my kitchen that I'm in the process of updating and it turned out very well for my first attempt at making a custom cabinet myself. I'd highly recommend this to any DYI'er out there that's wanting to do some custom wood work with material that has very minor if any flaws at a reasonable price. The only disappointment I had from this was on my side of building experience. I had to make my drawer face slightly bigger than the lower cabinet door to accommodate the drawer slider assembly. It's only 3/8" difference but it's much more noticeable before I painted everything and afterwards you can't tell at all unless you use a straight edge. The countertop is Typhoon Ice and after I build my upper cabinet I will install a backsplash on the wall to get rid of the different materials and paint they used in the past for the back splash. June 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality construction, nice grain and figure I ordered this plywood to construct an overhead china cabinet, and as far as the appearance of the material I couldn’t be happier. The veneer is nicely figured, with enough knots to give it character. There a very few voids in the laminations, and the few there were very small. Most of the cuts I made with a handheld circular saw and fine tooth blade. The material cuts easily and appears to be easy on blades. My test piece took stain evenly, and the finish dried smooth and with little grain raised. Overall, this plywood is a good looking product, and appears to be a well-made. March 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice color! I picked up this piece of 3/4 x 4 x 8 red oak plywood for a project I wanted to do. The grain looked very nice and that helped me to make up my mind on the red oak. The red oak veneer coating is not as thick as i had hoped but it worked out fine in the end. The purebond process seems to work well as the pieces that I have ripped have all stayed bonded together. The glue that is used is a natural soy based product that is supposed to be a lot healthier in the long run. March 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pure Red Oak This is a High Quality piece of plywood, multi layered with the final being the Red Oak, well finished and excellent grain pattern. it came superbly packed with strips of 3/8 inch plywood around the ends and sandwiched between, first a piece of 4x8 cardboard on each surface followed with a full sheet of 3/8 inch plywood, banded. Very well packed and heavy at 140 lbs. The ends layers are solid and I had only two very small places to fill before finishing. We made a counter/bar for our island in the kitchen and stained it with an all-in-one finish customer mixed at home for the color. The remains are being used for a custom made Jewelry box and The bonus here is the two 3/8 inch sheets used for shipping are usable, as they to are finished sheets on one side, high quality and nicely grained too. . April 1, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Okay-ish I looked around for decent oak plywood at every place within a 1.5 hour radius of where I live, and this was the best that I could find, without having to order at an extreme price. The plywood looks nice, and cuts well, if you're going with the grain of the veneer. If you need to go against the grain, though, be prepared for some chipping. The glue is not great. There were a few voids in one of the four sheets that I bought. That wouldn't be bad for cheap pine stuff, but at about $50 per sheet, one should be able to expect better. Oh well. Inspect your boards closely, and you may be fine. July 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 16, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Be aware - this does not measure 3/4" thick. Ok - I have now used about 30 sheets of this oak plywood (veneer). firstly you must know that this does not measure 3/4" inch thick. It is about 3/64ths inch less on all sheets I purchased. Normally this might not make much difference to you if you are not doing something particularly tight. But I am making many adjustable library bookcases, and I needed true measurements. Otherwise my math will make my cuts wrong. Also, the majority of these sheets have substantial defects in either the layers (excess spaces), or the actual very thin oak veneers. So you must inspect all pieces or you will get perhaps 60% with moderately major defects. I can recommend this, but with much caution when you buy. I have bought other 3/4 inch oak veneer plywoods for similar projects, and they actually did measure a true 3/4 inch. But this brand does not measure the true 3/4 inch. June 21, 2016
