  • Hardwood plywood strength, performance and durability

Veneered construction gives these decorative PureBond Birch Plywood Project Panels the strength, flatness and rigidity to satisfy the most discerning craftsman. Each 5-ply sheet is assembled with a soy-based PureBond technology to fortify its structural integrity, with the added benefit of being formaldehyde-free so it will not off-gas toxic fumes over time as UF-constructed plywood is known to do. The decorative veneers are precision-cut from domestically grown, sustainably harvested birch trees, producing visually alluring wood grains on the face and back of the panel that exhibit the warmth, beauty and timeless quality of natural hardwood. Featuring real timber throughout, the core veneer consists of natural yellow poplar substrate laid in alternating cross bands for utmost stability and ruggedness. It's a cost-competitive alternative to urea formaldehyde-laden plywood and will not contribute to air-quality degradation like composite panels. For extraordinary results on your next carpentry or woodworking project, add this 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. panel to your arsenal for construction of cabinets, entertainment centers, wall panels, coffee tables, bookcases, toy chests, benches, desks, shelves and more. The decorative veneers have a smooth finish that allows painting or staining to make it uniquely yours.
  • 5-ply sheet is assembled with smooth, patch-free birch veneers
  • PureBond hardwood plywood is an environmentally friendly, cost-competitive alternative to panels manufactured with urea formaldehyde (UF), which may degrade air quality over time
  • Contains 100% natural wood bonded with a food-grade soy-based adhesive that does not emit toxic air contaminants
  • The decorative top and bottom veneers, measuring approximately 1/42" thick, exhibit the beauty and timeless quality of natural hardwood and are suitable for painting or staining
  • Water-resistant composition has a higher moisture tolerance than UF panels and is less likely to warp than solid wood
  • Allow panel to acclimate to interior climate conditions for several days before customizing - for interior applications only
  • For best cutting results, use an 80-tooth (or greater) table saw blade intended for sheet goods or a carbide-tipped circular saw plywood blade
  • Common: 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft.; Actual: 0.453 in. x 48 in. x 96 in.
  • Direction of the grain is the length of panel
  • Each panel weighs approximately 45 lbs.

1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 147.

The faces, both front and back are very good, usually one side will have knots on it, although they are filled and sanded. I like the side with the knots and imperfections, but I am a fan of the more rustic looking wood products. There are no football patches on either side. The finish veneer sands well, I only use 220 or higher grit on it, and it stains and finishes very well. The sheets are generally flat, however some warping can occur if they are sitting on the rack too long. In this case, just be picky with them. Make sure that the ones on the top of the stack are the birch and not some sandeply that got shifted over by other customers - that happened to me on the last time I picked some up. Cuts well with generally minimal tear out. I like it and will continue to use it. The glue they use is also formaldehyde free, which makes me feel even more comfortable. I would still use a dust mask when sanding or cutting it though.

I was looking for some light weight plywood to make some shelves for smaller books. I found that one of the boards was not well glued and the surface veneer peeled off in several areas. It took some time and effort, but I worked around the areas of non-adhesion. The second board I bought was fine. Note: use a blade specifically rated for plywood when ripping and cross-cutting. The veneer was, I thought, very thin and had a tendency to chip without a finer blade

Just needs to be taped where you plan to cut to prevent shredding of the top layer. If you need it cut down at Home Depot like I do, just make sure to account for 1/4" being unusable because of shredding from their machines. Next time I will bring tape with me and hopefully their machine won't totally rip the edges. Other than that, great product.

Lately when purchasing this product there are many hidden areas under the top layer that are not filled with plywood. This becomes an issue when putting polyurethane on. The Poly seeps through the top layer and creates a buckling which damages my entire project. This cannot be noticed when looking at the wood until the polycoats go on. This is frustrating at $44 per sheet.

I built a large dog ramp to sit on the end of my bed and needed two of these. I used this wood for the sides and end. It is great quality and took stain (to match my bedroom furniture) very well. Like I said, pricey, but you get what you pay for. I am very happy with this purchase.

Nice stuff - the 1/2" thickness is something I could easily handle and still firm enough to work well as a temporary 'table top'. This 4 x 8 piece cut into three sections, and I gave each a bit of sanding and two coats of clear varathane. The resulting sections are in use here "all the time".

Would give it 5 stars but it had a good dent in one of the corners, not sure when this happened but luckily we were able to put that side back where it wasn't visible. Sealed with Howard butcher block conditioner and it looks great.
