About This Product

The beauty and warmth of natural hardwood shines through on these PureBond Red Oak Plywood panels from Columbia Forest Products. Assembled using a soy-based PureBond technology, these 1/2 in. x 2 ft. x 8 ft. sheets feature American-grown timber throughout with decorative red oak face and back veneers that produce stellar results on DIY woodworking projects. Using a proper saw blade, these sheets can be custom-cut to suit an assortment of carpentry applications, including construction of furniture, shelves, bookcases, built-in cabinets, media centers, headboards and more. This formaldehyde-free plywood is a cost-competitive alternative to potentially health-hazardous UF boards that may release air-degrading fumes over time. It's as exquisite and robust as solid hardwood but without the expense and heft.

          makes a great floor
          I used these sheets to put down a new floor and it came out great! Their custom cuts were perfect and saved me the trouble of having to use a circular saw. I highly recommend this product

            great wood for projects
            I got this for a project I was working on, it is easy to work with, its finish is smooth and it is strong. I think it was a great choice.

              Absolutely beautiful, but cut with care..
              I used this plywood in two thicknesses. This ply panel was perfect for my furniture restoration/modification project of an 18th century Barley Twist cabinet. The veneer has a nice grain, took stain very well, and has an attractive, consistent grain throughout. My only concern was that the outermost layers of oak veneer are very thin. This limits anything other than light surface sanding during finishing, and use great caution when running it through saws. .

                Outstanding Red Oak Project Panel
                1/2in. X 2ft. X 4ft. Red Oak Plywood This red oak panel is simply outstanding!! The panel was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. While I normally expect a few end voids even in really nice plywood I was unable to find any on this piece. I have never seen a four foot piece of ply that was any flatter than this or any nicer. I would feel comfortable using this for almost any project. This piece has a very nice grain to it and with the correct stain you could use it to imitate many different types of wood. While I am not a furniture maker or fine craftsman I still appreciate a really nice board, if you are looking for a piece of red oak I can not imagine you being unhappy with this. Pros: Flat Beautiful No end voids Cons: None

                Very high quality plywood with no defects. Aesthetically, either side could be exposed in any application. I had only a small project to complete, for which a 2' x 2' panel was more than adequate, and less wasteful than buying and cutting down a full 4' x 8' sheet. Order turnaround was exceptional. With just standard shipping, the panel was in my hands 3 business days after placing the order. It had been drop-shipped directly from Columbia Forest Products in NC, and being in MD, I'm not terribly far away.

                Very Good Quality Oak
                I ordered these to use as risers for a staircase that I rebuilt over the existing one. They worked perfectly and matched the oak stair treads that I also purchased at HD. I ordered 5 boards and there was not a defect on any of them. The quality was very good and it ended up saving me quite a bit of money by cutting these boards myself (3 risers in each board) vs. buying the risers at $18-20 each. the cost was very reasonable although you do have to pay a special shipping charge. I would highly recommend.
