Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by donbrock73 Good finish wood
I only recommend the use as a finish product if you know how to work with it. For example, if you are going to cut it with a saw, you need to use painters tape along the entire length of the cut to prevent splintering. Don't give this product a bad rating based on the fact that you don't know how to work with it.

Have used this for many years and I seriously doubt it comes from china as it's a quality wood product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by J0sh NOTE ACTUAL THICKNESS is 0.106 inch
Not as good as previously available product, which was actually 1/8 (0.125) inch thick. This reduced thickness means that MORE SUPPORT POINTS are required to get a smooth FLAT finished surface. WARPS EASILY if not securely fastened. Some sheets were not perfectly square. The surface quality and uniformity is good. Still a good value, if the tendency to warp is factored into the project design. PLEASE HOME DEPOT: BRING BACK THE 1/8 INCH THICKNESS!

This product is exactly what it says: 0.106" thick lauan (Philippine mahogany) plywood. I used multiple layers to laminate sturdy curved panels. The size and price are excellent.

Have used these panels outside, untreated, for several months. They have not splintered, cracked or otherwise deteriorated. Pretty amazing performance for the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MechanicalExpert Luan plywood for hollow core doors no one would ever make again. But great for Box Liners
I have no Idea how any of the reviews has relevance as this is 1/8 in Luan Plywood. The kind used on doors a 10 year old could punch a hole through. It has nothing to do with strength, underlayment, or anything else especially beauty. Just the thinnest cheapest lightest plywood available at a home center. I really preferred another stores 1/8 Birch but when Thailand had a shortage and stopped shipping, they found it wasn't a big enough seller to go with Luan. Who would make a cheap door when you can buy one for $23.00? I suppose someone could use it for a pressboard cabinet liner, but it still is Luan!
The sheets can be scored with a box cutter and snapped like drywall. I use them to reinforce cardboard containers or make bottom skids for heavier loads without adding weight. Nothing more for me.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Build34 Awful product
From the two great reviews, I figured this would be a great product, I was wrong. Boards are flimsy and crack easily. Very light weight and not worth the money at all. Sticker clearly displays, "made in China". I would never recommend this to anyone.

I have used these panels for everything from underlayment for floors to cabinet sides and as wall paneling in a mobile home. I have been 100% pleased each and every time. Makes remodeling easier. Can be used as a filler anywhere including outdoors. Must be primed with an oil based primer and then painted with an outdoor paint if being used outdoors. Recommend using primer in kitchen or bath applications.
