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
  • Decorative top and bottom veneers, measuring approximately 1/42 in. 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.

1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 227.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from So - I guess I had a bit of misfortune... I purchased a sheet of 1/2 (furniture grade) birch plyw... So - I guess I had a bit of misfortune... I purchased a sheet of 1/2 (furniture grade) birch plywood, from what remained of a pallet load. When I got there, there were perhaps 10 sheets left; and my initial observation was each remaining sheet was "not flat enough" that they looked "a bit curly." Each sheet was perhaps 2-3 inches crowned or "out-of-flat" per sheet, from corner to center of sheet... I thought I could live with that for my use, assuming there no other anomalies. I needed a 4' x 8' sheet cut to smaller sizes to get it home, and use it, since I don't have a panel saw, I asked the Home Depot Sawyer to cut the sheet to my specification: Approximately 16" wide x 32 long. (5-6 cuts involved to make the one sheet into pieces small enough to bring home). I took the stack of 9 pieces home with me; but was disappointed when the individual ply-s locally delaminated (inter-ply adhesive failure), as I was trimming them again. For my purposes this is not good enough - I guess I will be finding my next batch of furniture grade plywood elsewhere. My cost in this ~$50 wasted.

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.

The first boards I looked at were from the bottom of a bundle, so I started to leave because they looked pretty ragged, but the department manager said he had another bundle he could put out, and that bundle was beautiful! I bought several sheets and very happy.
