About This Product

Use this PureBond Birch Plywood Project Panel for your next cabinetry or furniture project and never worry about it releasing airborne contaminants, as formaldehyde-laden products are prone to do. A decorative birch veneer graces the face of this 3-ply panel, assembled on top of 2 other veneers with a soy-based PureBond technology that is environmentally friendly and won't off-gas toxic fumes like UF plywood. The natural warmth and beauty of real birch gives the decorative face veneer a splendid appearance that forms the foundation for impressive DIY creations, such as serving trays, end tables, pet food centers, footstools, wall pockets, shelves and more. It's a cost-competitive alternative to products that may degrade indoor air quality over time and its water resistance further strengthens its endurance for lasting performance.

Questions & Answers

Q:How thick is the birch layer? Is it a veneer or thicker layer? Is it dried an ready for priming for a oil painting panel?
by|Jul 10, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi, This half inch birch is going to be 24 inches thick. The birch layer will be 5 ply with the veneer on top and bottom making the total 7 ply. Each top and bottom veneer layer will be 1/42 in thick. There is more information under the product on Home Depot's website under "product details". It will be ready; I would just recommend a light sanding before painting. Thanks, Alec

      Q:If I buy a 4x8 sheet of plywood can you cut into 16 3 inch strips
      by|Apr 9, 2022
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello, Your best option would be to buy 3 panels of the 2x8 size. We could cut each 2x8 panel into 7 parts that are 3"x96". We are unable to get 8 parts from the panel due to the saw kerf. You can email me at kcrisp@cfpwood.com if you have other questions.

        Q:What type of plywood has no voids in the layers?
        by|Mar 27, 2022
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello Raymond, Plywood typically can and does have some voids resulting from splits or knots in the wood. On a smaller panel like this 2ft. x 4ft. panel you may not find any, but I would not guarantee it. I would not be able to give you a recommendation for a panel that has no voids in the inner plies. If you have more questions, please reach out to me at kcrisp@cfpwood.com.

          We were very pleased with the 2'x8 piece of birch plywood. Well packaged. Delivered earlier than expected. Birch was in excellent condition and cut to fit the area we needed exactly.

          Edges had some minor dents and dings, it is not marine grade, but perfect for most furniture/project needs. Overall, plywood was in better shape than any in store sheet found at Home Depot.
