          Good for painted projects, but not ready-to-display
          This plywood was dead flat, even after leaning at an odd angle against my workbench for over a week. The surface is continuous and free of positive material. The primer appears to have filled the knots, but it does not hide them. I didn't paint the project I used them for, but it looks like this primer would go a long way to keeping the oil from the knots bleeding through, requiring less paint, which would save time and money on larger projects.

          Handy size
          This panel is a handy size to work for smaller projects. I had a project where I needed to construct a sidewall to support several large, thin boxes of equipment. (A bookend so to speak). The panel was just the right size. I did not have to cut it at all. And because it was primed, it saved lots of time because it was ready to paint. Please note that while the plywood is primed on both sides, the edges are not primed. Also note that the primer is not necessarily a sealer, so there were a couple of wood knots that showed through the primer a bit. Have some primer available to do the edges and knots if needed. If you cut the panel, that cut edge will need to be primed anyway.

          Really Nice
          This poplar primed 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 come pre-primed so very little prep is required for paining. I can not imagine you being unhappy with this. Pros: Flat Beautiful No end voids Cons: None

          Bowed at both ends
          I got this to make a cabinet door for a project I'm working on. Unfortunately, the panel is bowed on each end so it's useless to me. While I'm sure I'll find another use for the wood, I'm disappointed because it won't be used for what I meant to use it for. I probably wouldn't care as much if I could trim off the bowed sections, but it's a large door so that's not possible. Because this isn't sold in stores, you can only hope that the piece that you get isn't bowed. Based on other reviews, it seems to be hit or miss.
          Response from Columbia Forest ExpertNov 22, 2015
          Hello, We do regret the panel arrived bowed and would like to offer a new panel on us. Please contact Kevin at kcrisp@cfpwood.com for a replacement. ColumbiaForestProducts

          1/2" panel bowed so horribly
          I ordered the 1/2" panel which arrived so horribly bowed, that I cannot use it for any of the projects I wanted to make. The only thing I think I can do with it is use it for furring strips...maybe not even that. The 3/4" panel i ordered arrived in perfect condition in the same shipping box. Very disappointed, hopefully I just got unlucky with this particular panel.
          I had Columbia Forrest cut the panel to size, as I was using the CTS pieces for cabinets, and they sent me warped CTS pieces. I returned the product to Home Depot.
          Response from CFP Customer ServiceMar 18, 2024
          I apologize for the issue. The plywood should not have the issues you describe in the review. I would like to discuss the issue with you and see what we can do to make it right. I can be reached at alec.neugent@cfpwood.com. Thanks.

          It came cut as asked but playwood was not smooth as I thought and the pre-prime was not as white as I thought I still had to paint 2 white coat. For the price, I can find much cheaper material at store and get cut there.
