Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jrb 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gerg 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Retired297 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. .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ben62 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scott 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kopkonst 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.

This 3/4 in X4 ftX8 ft sheet of Red Oak Plywood will be great for my project. It looks just like a red oak plank of wood but it will be much stronger. The shipping was better than could have been expected. I came on a pallet surrounded by two more sheets of plywood and three straps holding everything together. The bill of lading showed the weight to be 69 pounds. It was more like 150 pounds. Thank you Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulCoMat Absolutely beautiful
One of the most beautiful sheets of plywood I have seen in a long, long time. The first thing I check is the finished side and this one is flawless. The second inspection I do is check the outer edges for gaps in the plywood. None, none whatsoever. All the layers are tight and look clear. Then I look at the outer edges & they are straight and square with no ridges. I would use these for am outside trim edge and the size is right on, not undersized like some plywood I have had. It looks perfectly flat with no notable warp or twist at all. My project will take some time to complete and I cannot wait to get started.
