Q:There seems to be disagreement on this site, as to whether this is smooth on both sides or not.

Answer This Question

A:  Masonite is a brand name that no longer sells hardboard in the U.S. The term is also used generically to refer to hardboard like Kleenex is a brand but also refers to tissue and Xerox is a brand but also refers to photocopying. So yes, if you are looking for "the same thing as Masonite" what you really want is 'hardboard' and this is hardboard. There are many different companies that make it today. If anyone else is claiming to sell Masonite, they are not. They are selling you hardboard manufactured by some other company, and they are using the brand name generically. I bought this a few times from my local HD store, and it is definitely smooth on both sides and exactly 1/4". If being smooth is important to you, you will need to check your local store, because in says right in the description *Product varies by store*

A:  Yes, this is equally smooth on both sides. I cannot discern any difference in smoothness from one side to the other.

A:  No it is rough on one side and smooth on the other.

A:  No, it comes lightly sanded from the mill, but if you want it sanded all the way, I would go with the project board that says sanded. Or break out the orbital sander and go with some 150 grit, then some 220 grit and call it a day. Really depends on how smooth you want it.

    Perfect, exactly 1/4"
    This was perfect for my project, easy to use, perfectly flat, and exactly 1/4". Fit my 1/4" dados perfect. No undersized router bit needed. Sometimes these products get mixed up on the shelves by customers, and maybe that's why others have posted negative reviews - they grabbed a different size. Make sure you grab the right one and it is exactly 1/4".

    This is HARDBOARD NOT PLYWOOD
    Hardboard and Plywood Thicknesses are 2 entirely different measurements. I use the 1/4" hardboard for drawer bottoms only because the 1/4" plywood thickness is too thin be it luan OR spuce The bottom line is you will never be able to buy a TRUE 1/4" thick piece of plywood OR hardboard for that matter. They just don't make it anymore. Just like you will never be able to buy a TRUE 2 X 4

    thickness size question
    Statements that the advertised thickness is not correct are accurate. This is not plywood which allows variations in the actual thickness - this is hardboard which has stricter thickness standards. If it is stated as 1/4 inch it is supposed to be 1/4 inch. The wood standard which allows for a 1 x to be 3/4 instead of 1 inch and a 2x4 to actually be 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 are different than the hardboard standards. The American Hardboard Association states hardboard is to be sold and labeled by its manufactured thickness. Just be aware it is not as advertised and account for it in your design.

    This is not 1/4 inch thick hardboard.
    this is not 1/4 inch hardboard. It is 3/16 hardboard being passed off as 1/4. The ANSI/AHA A135.4-1995 specification for hardboard requires a thickness range of .210-.265 for 1/4 inch hardboard.

    Correct size advertized
    Obviously the people who comment that this product is not the size advertised are not woodworkers otherwise they would have known the size stated is correct. They probably think that a 2 x 4 is really 2" by 4" - or - a 1 x 6 is actually 1" by 6".

    Plywood Sizing NOT!
    The specifications clearly state that this is 1/4", which it is NOT. Just look at the plywood specifications - it will tell you that the plywood is for example, 23/32". What's next - a 4x8 sheet is only 90x40?

    Plywood sizing
    Everyone above is stating that the thickness sizing on this plywood is incorrect. They are wrong. The sizing shown here is correct. Check the specifications for 1/4" plywood and you will find out that the correct thickness is 3/16" to 7/32". You will hardly ever find 1/4" plywood that is 1/4" thick. The description for this product is correct and within the guidelines for plywood thickness. If you are working on a project where you need an exact thickness, then you should ALWAYS measure before you purchase.

    Not as advertised
    As a previous rating indicated, this product is 3/16", not 1/4" as labeled and advertised. If you have a particular project in mind that calls for 1/4", be aware that is not what you are buying!
