About This Product

Use this 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 4 ft. PureBond Alder 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. Decorative alder veneers grace the top and bottom of this 5-ply panel, with other hardwood layers sandwiched between and glued 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 alder gives the top and bottom veneers 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.

    Good Wood at a Nice Price
    This alder “Project Panel” provides a great option for those needing small quantities of hardwood not readily available locally. Both sides of the panel are “B-2” quality veneers of alder, thick enough for sanding and staining. The core is only 3-plys of material, so exposed edges won't have the finished look of Baltic or “Euro-ply” wood; edge-trim or hidden joinery is a must. There are only a few filled knot-holes and such on my panels, so avoiding them if desired still leaves a lot of prime veneer available. I wish these were available at my local Home Depot, but shipping is only about $6.00 so it's still a good option for small quantities. Overall it's a great option at a reasonable price.

    Convenient quality plywood
    This plywood is a good trade-off between price and quality. I have used better plywood, but not in this price range. The size is also convenient, it fits in my small car without needing to bring the trailer, which is a major factor for me living 90 miles from the nearest Home Depot store. Judging by the edges, before and after cutting, the plywood is almost completely void free. The surface veneer is free of defects and takes on a fine finish.

    Nice Piece
    It is of course not furniture grade, but a nice piece of plywood. The cut I received had a beautiful grain and I stained it a cherry color for a shelf. It matched the cherry cabinet perfectly. I am very pleased overall with this.

    I used a lot of this product in various lengths and thicknesses for a media unit product. It is very accurate in dimensions and each piece has a "good" side. The only negative is that it does not take dark stain consistently from piece to piece; you really have to work with the stain to get it to match.

    The shipment arrived early and was in good shape. All boards were square and only one was 1/16" short. I have used 1/2" and 3/4" for this project and the pieces have all been excellent.
