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.

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: 
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.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice sheet of wood. I'm using the 3/4 inch purebond red oak plywood on a project for my wife. It is very nice grain. It will look fantastic when I get finished and coat it with urethane. It was delivered when I was away from the house for a doctors appointment. The delivery driver was easy to work with and he put it where I asked. It shows on the shipping label to weigh 60 pounds. This was wrapped with a sheet of 1/2 inch plywood on each side to protect it from shipping damage. I would guess that it weighed close to 120 pounds. I was impressed that Home Depot would take that much care. Thank you Home Depot. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 8, 2015
