Answer: 
Guess you could, but it would be a expensive chicken coop. I think a lower grade of plywood would work just as well. But no matter what type of plywood you use it would have to be well sealed or it will separate.

Hello,
I would not recommend the product for outdoor applications. We use a water resistant glue – but not a waterproof/exterior rated adhesive. For this application you will need an exterior rated panel.

Answer: 
Hello,
The ¾” Red Oak isn’t intended for exterior applications. It’s produced with a water resistant glue – but not a waterproof glue. Typical applications for decorative hardwood plywood includes cabinetry, shelving, etc. For exterior applications you will need to use a plywood rated for exterior applications.

I'm sure it's just the outer bonds. I don't see why the process would be different and you can't tell by looking at the edge. Only sure way is to ask the manufacturer.

3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Red Oak Plywood (FSC Certified) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Plywood - No voids, no knots, no warping This was some nice looking plywood. Even though it was graded as C3, it was free of knots, voids, and surprisingly very straight and showed no warping. I covered this plywood with laminate and tile, but you could just as easily stain it as appearance grade plywood for a project. My project required ripping the sheet down into some long 3 thin strips. I never once encountered a void even with a lot of cuts through the table saw. I also used a router on the plywood and encountered no issues. We were all extremely pleased with the quality of the plywood. I have included some pictures of the veneer and cut sides. As an added bonus, it is formaldehyde free which is hard to find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking plywood I received the sheet of plywood the other day. Received it in fairly nice condition. It was shipped with a 3/4" sheet of plywood on one side and 1/2' on the other which protected the Red Oak sheet just fine. Only damage was someone dropped it on a corner or ran it into something else and damaged one corner a little, but the sheet is still usable. The grain is a little different on each side. One side is pretty plain looking and the other has some more details which the attached picture shows. It has 5 layers making up the plywood. I found it easy to cut with a power saw and on my table saw. Also routered some rabbits that turned out fine. It takes stain nicely and uniformly. Very nice quality plywood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very heavy, Multiple uses, Cuts easily with Rockwell saw The plywood was encased in 2 thinner sheets of plywood to protect it from damage on both sides; I opted to leave the pallet intact to cut the plywood down to size because it was too heavy to move by myself. There's a nice graining pattern and the plywood was smoother than expected. So far, I used the plywood as a countertop for a vanity. It was easy to cut with my Rockwell saw and sand with my Dremel Multi-max tool. Once finished sanding, I applied Rustoluem metallic ORB oil paint to protect the surface. Next projects are to create an outdoor grill table and stain the remainder for butcher-block style bar top - there are so many uses for this plywood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Beautiful! TOP QUALITY & Looks It! Great For Cabinet Doors! 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 Red Oak Stain to bring out the grain & Voila - Awesome Cabinet Doors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red oak Plywood I need to make a couple of end panels for our kitchen cabinets. The cabinets are made of particle board and over time have become unsightly. This plywood will allow me to make a custom look end panel that is durable and looks good for very little effort expended. The Plywood has a nicely grained face and although it is very thin veneer, there is enough there to take a nice finish and give me the look I want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent plywood at a reasonable price I have used this brand of plywood on several projects and never been disappointed. This sheet had no voids visible at the edges, although other sheets from the same company sometimes have had the occasional small void. The oak veneer is flawless, at least to my eye and the whole board is sufficiently flat that there is no difficulty pulling it flat, for example if you were attaching it to sides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice grain pattern Huh! I did not expect the veneers on this to be of the best quality for what it was, low-cost red-oak plywood bought at a large retailer instead of a specialty provider, but I received a wonderful shock when I finally saw it. Plywood is typically graded on the quality of its veneer,s and the cost difference between different grades is usually much more than the uninitiated expect. A board with one A-grade side typically costs as much as twice the price of a board whose best side only rates a C. In most rating systems, the front side receives a letter grade, the back side receives a number grade, so the very best plywood boards are rated A1 and typically cost more than twice the price of what a more common C3 board sells for. This is because plywood veneers are cut in multiple ways -- the most common (and cheapest) is that it is peeled in thin sheets off a rotating log. Typically, this leads to unnatural-looking grain patterns in the plywood, which make plywood manufactured in this way unsuitable for appearance purposes. In no other North American hardwood plywood is this as important as it is with red oak plywood, with its extremely strong grain pattern. The difference between a red oak plywood board with one or two really nice veneers suitable for appearance purposes and a board with two strange-looking veneers that is only useful for internal structural elements is perfectly obvious even to those who know next to nothing about wood. This board's best side could clearly pass muster as a B board and be used for an appearance panel for smaller elements. I was shocked. This is listed as a C3 board on homedepot.com. I did not expect to get this quality at this price point, and have paid much more for a similar-looking oak veneer in the past. Cutting into the board to take it down to the 2ft. by 4 ft. project panels I most typically use plywood for, I expected plenty of internal voids and other issues, but this was surprisingly nice stuff. Thank you, Columbia Forest Products! This is an exceptional plywood board at this price point, far better than I expected. Something of this quality can certainly be used to build a stain-grade cabinet or a case, or it can be use to replace the side panel of an oak vanity or dresser, and the end product will look better than just OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far I'm impressed So far I'm really impressed with this 3/4 inch x 4 ft x 8ft PureBond Red Oak plywood. I am building a flip-top-tool stand which will have my wood planer on one side and my dovetail machine on the other side. I have made over a dozen cuts so far from four inches long to thirty-one inches and have only found one void. And that void was only about two inches long and 1/2 inch deep. So right now I have to say this plywood is worth the price.
