Customer Questions & Answers

Would this wood be good for making a desk?

Asked by: Shan
Yes, though you would need to have a solid wood frame to hide the edges

Can I use this as siding for a chicken coop?

Asked by: Person
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.

3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Red Oak Plywood (FSC Certified) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been building some custom cabinets with this plywood. Like any wood you get at a big box sto... I've been building some custom cabinets with this plywood. Like any wood you get at a big box store, you need to look it over when you get it and "dig deeper" if you find a blemished sheet. Out of the 6 sheets I got, I had to "dig down" to 8 sheets deep, aka, 2 of the top 8 pieces on top of the stack I passed on. Bring an extra person if possible, or go off hours so an employee can help you. One side has a red tint, one side has a lack of tint. Be on the lookout for places where the veneer has some imperfections. Again, 2 out of the 8 sheets had this and why I bypassed those. BIG HINT: If you need super clean cut-edges and you need the store to cut the sheet for you, do ROUGH cuts (aka, at least a 1/2" wider or longer) then your final cut, and do you final cut at home. The big saw at the store probably is a low teeth blade and has been used dozens and dozens of times. Aka, you're going to get some splintering from the cut at the store. I did "rough cuts" at the store so I could fit the pieces in my SUV (24" side by 8 feet long) (aka, one rip down the middle). I needed 22 1/2" wide panels at home, and I did that at home with a new high-teeth blade on my circular saw. Even though I have a dewalt portable table saw, when doing cuts for cabinets/furniture, I like to use my Kreg KMA2675 Kreg Rip-Cut which really does a good consistent rip cut. (And is very small/cheap compared to a table saw, which is a good option for a DIYer). The new high teeth blade minimized any splintering. So just use some common sense. Don't expect perfect cuts from the saw at the store. Use a good blade for final cuts at home. Do a few test cuts at home to see where you might have splintering issue before you "dive in". I really like how my cabinets turned out. I created "face frames" with 1 1/2 inch side pure-oak wood. and used kreg pocket screws to join this plywood to the face frames. If this is how you are doing it, then I strong suggest getting 2 Kreg KHC-RAC hole clamps. This will allow you to clamp the plywood (at a right angle) to the face frame and really fine tune the connection. Before I used the Kreg KHC-RAC clamps, my wood would get out of alignment by 1/32 (or so) of an inch, and just made the piece not feel high quality. I don't work for Kreg, I'm just telling you what I have found as must have tools when creating decent furniture. 2 Kreg KHC-RAC clamps. 1 Kreg KMA2675 Kreg Rip-Cut 1 Kreg K5 Pocket-Hole Jig (much better clamping system then the K4) That would be my must have Kreg list. The hole clamps can also be used when joining the face frame. In fact, I have a Kreg KHC-PREMIUM clamp and a never use it. Just don't use the small diameter rod on the Kreg KHC-RAC (* without a washer) against your project wood. Use the flat-circle piece of the Kreg KHC-RAC against the project wood. * Another hint, get a few grade 8 washers (about 1/2" size) and use this in conjuction small diameter rod on the Kreg KHC-RAC clamp to clamp "above" the drilled out pocket holes. It's hard to describe. But if you get the 2 Kreg KHC-RAC clamps and a few grade-8 washers (for a few pennies), it'll be another clamping option when the time comes. Another trick. Get a 16" by 24" framing square (less then $10 at Home Depot) and drill a few holes in it, and mount it to a FLAT surface near the corner with some bolts (keep the small head of the bolt on the top side). This simple trick allows me to position my pieces at 90 degrees before pocket screwing them together. I got some a melamine sheet. I mounted this to rudimentary table legs with 5" of overhang (of the melamine). This gives me a clean-flat surface to work on and I clamp from the bottom side. You can kinda see that in the pictures. Not seen (or barely seen) is the framing square I mounted to the "lower left" corner of the melamine. You can see I have the kreg aluminum straight edges (blue), but that was overkill. I find myself using the mounted framing square as my 90 degree guide most of the time. So the kreg tools mentioned above and the frame square trick, a circular saw with a good-new-high-teeth blade, I would not hesitate to say "go for it" for making some furniture. The first piece was something I made for the closet, and I learned a few tricks on the way, and now I'm on my way to creating something that will look great in the kitchen (aka, on full display). I also got the columbia red oak 1 1/2" bead board to be the "centers" of my shaker style door frames (made with 2 1/2" wide oak boards). I'm very happy with the turn out. I like that is isn't super chemical glue since its going in my kitchen and in my house. Home Depot also has some 3/8" oak dowels, and these can be used to fill the pocket holes. Get a under-cut saw (aka, door jamb saw), and you can glue in the dowels into the pocket holes, and then cut them down to almost flat. This is a cheaper (and since its oak wood, a better match) then buying the "official" wood plugs from kreg. you-tube "homemade kreg plugs" as well. Attached are two early pictures of my big and small cabinets. You can see the face frames and the plywood sides/tops/bottoms.

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 SMOOTH FINISH AND TERRIFIC GRAIN PATTERNS I've had this closet with odd size doors that's been needing to have some rolling or louver custom doors made for them but I haven't had the money. I got this piece of PUREBOND RED OAK plywood as either a temporary or permanent fix to keep the cats from going inside and getting in the cloths. The 4'X8' is the perfect size as it would allow me the four doors I needed with five simple cuts. I have bought hardwood plywood in the past either full or partial sheets and have always been bothered by the roll marks left by the sander. Let me tell you, this piece seemed to have none. The maintenance and upkeep on their sander must be perfection as I have supervised a hardwood sander and between bearings, press rolls, chains, sanding belts, it is really very impressive. To top it off their seemed to be no dive or taper on the leading or exiting end of the piece itself. I quickly put a mic on it and the tolerance varied so little it needs not be mentioned. Since I'm thinking that later this wood will be used for cabinetry, all I did was hit it with 220 grit sandpaper for about 20 minutes, mixed some gold and light red stain with linseed oil, a few hinges, knobs and latches. All the scrap left was a piece of 4"X4' that will be great for a kickboard or backsplash, e.g. I'm not saying that if you put a heavy shine to this plywood that some slight roll marks won't show up, all I'm saying is that I didn't see any and I spent no time sanding it either.

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 1 out of 5 by from Awful Having a bad experience with the Blue competitor's Oak plywood I decided to try Home Depot's. I ended up getting some Birch, which was a very good sheet for my project. I went back and got the Oak. What a piece of junk. De-lamination of plies, plugs which made the thickness different in places around the edges, an absolutely ridiculous gluing of the veneer, which is paper thin. In seeing this upon close inspection I decided to trace a razor cut along every line I had to cut through (lots of circles). I'm glad I did. Still, while my sheet stayed true and flat it was two days of disgust dealing with ripping and shredding veneer when I placed an 1/8" round-over bit to the edges, trying to repair spots, and ultimately a ruined, sub-standard project. I don't know where HD (and their competitor) get this stuff but, it is the worst I have ever used in 40 years of woodworking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid this product Purchased four sheets of the red oak for bookshelves and regretted it. The oak veneer is so thin that while doing light sanding edges would disappear and the plywood veneer beneath came through. This occurred at edges and in the field where the material should not sand through. Because I was committed to the project I had to blow through material, hide damage and really work hard to make this material useful. Also found numerous blemishes in my shop that I didn't see at the store, thats my fault but if you are buying this material despite this review go through the pieces carefully before loading them up. Despite pre-cutting all my cross cuts with a razor knife then using my table saw or miter saw to make the through cut, the material would chip leaving a very messy edge for me to fix or redo…not a happy builder when you blow through costly sheets of material. I know its not my equipment as I use high end tools with high end blades and capable hands while using them. This is another HD material that looks like a deal but when you actually start working with it you realize you made a bad choice.
