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.
  • Grade: C-3 - See Grading Guide for additional information

1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a good product. I have purchased 6 or 7 sheets spread across 3 or 4 occasions. The birch... This is a good product. I have purchased 6 or 7 sheets spread across 3 or 4 occasions. The birch veneer is very thin (like 1/32"), so little sanding can be performed without going right through the veneer. This should not be a problem since the veneer is already very smooth. My only complaint is that many (perhaps half) of the pieces i purchased had voids directly beneath the veneer. Normally this would not be an issue, but since the veneer is so thin, the veneer will wrinkle as soon as you go to paint it. I have had to cut out a part of the veneer and insert a patch on one of the pieces i had already cut for my project. So, my directive to you, if you are buying this product, scour the entire surface very carefully and try to select a piece without voids.

I had the sheet cut in half for me at the store. The blade on the store saw must have been dull, because the cut was horrible. Upon closer inspection at home, I realized that one of the reasons for the horrible cut was the voids between the plies. I needed half the sheet for a project but had to use the other half to get pieces that were viable for the furniture I was building. Horrible product for the price.

Only nice looking 1/2" Plywood you HAD in stock so I had to purchase it. Not happy that it is not made in America. I am hoping my cabinet will hold up.
