Could they cut the ply wood into 3’s to fit into my 4runner

Asked by: Kaneala
Yes. They give you one or two free cuts and charge a nominal fee for each additional cut. They do not guarantee accuracy or precision. They cut my sheet into three-inch strips.

1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood (FSC Certified) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute junk I purchased six sheets of this for a project. Instead of the 15/32" thickness on the sticker, typical for 1/2" ply, it was in reality 3/8" thick (12/32). Of the six pieces, ONE was 14/32" (7/16") which I figured I could get away with for a small table. I cut out a table top and proceeded to rip the 3" skirt pieces for around the edge. The interior plys were NOT GLUED TOGETHER! For HALF the sheet! Glued to about 6" from the edges, but the entire center hadn't seen a drop. I've used this Birch "PureBond" from Home Depot for years...back when it was $33/sheet. I've probably gone through $5,000 of the stuff. Sure, I've seen the occasional void. But to shell out $250 for plywood, cut into the only sheet that meets (or at least comes close) to specs and find THIS little surprise?! Absolutely inexcusable. Absolute junk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good plywood to use for project especially around kids Used this half inch for a recent project. Wanted to upgrade a couple parts of my kids loft bed and needed a decent looking plywood. I was also concerned about some plywoods that smell horrible and did not want my kids breathing in that. I have used Purebond in the past and liked how it looked and worked. It was easy to work with and I found the veneer thicker than I would think on a typical 1/2" sheet which is what this was. Very little chip out and I did not see any voids in the product I used. I ended up putting two coats of natural shellac on it and it looks really good with that coating (see photos). It almost has an white oak like look on it but I guess birch can look that way and it works for where I used the plywood. I believe this is rated at least a C3 grade, its a bit hard to tell. One of the reason I did not give this 5 stars is the rating of the boards. Out of the two boards i had, 1 was really good but the other board was not. The back was utility grade type of veneer. I would suggest you check each board when you purchase it.
