1/4 in. x 2 ft. x 4 ft. Rough Sawn Birch Plywood Project Panel

Product Overview

Build beautiful authentic hardwood-faced creations with new Pure Bond Rough Sawn Birch Plywood Project Panel from Columbia Forest Products. Harvested in a sustainable manner from a domestic forest, the birch timber used for the decorative veneers is specially-cut with a random, rustic hardwood appearance that works splendidly on any furniture or cabinetry piece. This 1/4 in. panel is comprised of 100% natural wood and assembled with a soy-based, formaldehyde-free Pure Bond technology that wont subject interior environs to any toxic off-gassing, as UF-constructed panels are susceptible to do. The hardwood core substrate is layered in alternating cross bands with the birch face veneers, augmenting the rigidity, strength and flatness you expect from hardwood for lasting durability and enduring beauty. This 3-ply decorative plywood is a cost-competitive alternative to formaldehyde-laden panels and won't degrade the air quality of your home or business over time. Finish by sealing, staining or painting.

Answer

I would not recommend this product for flooring applications. The veneer is thin and will not hold up to heavy foot traffic over time.

This is a nice piece of plywood for indoor projects that have only one "show" side. The rough-sawn side has a nice rustic appearance. It has good-looking grain and color variation and the rough-sawn saw marks. The opposite side is plain without distinctive grain. The piece I received had no voids on the reverse, but many others have reported voids. This is fine for a lot of projects, definitely good to know ahead if you are purchasing online.

This is a nice piece of plywood for indoor projects that have only one "show" side. The rough-sawn side has a nice rustic appearance. It has good-looking grain and color variation and the rough-sawn saw marks. The opposite side is plain without distinctive grain and has 2 sizable filled voids. This is fine for a lot of projects, definitely good to know ahead if you are purchasing online.

This birch plywood is great, and both sides are constructed slightly differently to give you some flexibility in how you want to use the piece. One side is a solid veneer and smooth, the other side is a composition of 4 different pieces of birch and is a bit rougher. This side looks like traditional paneling. Both sides look great and could be used for your finished piece, it just depends what look you're after. One of the sides had a few big knots in it that you may or may not want in a finished piece. These were filled and sealed, but still present. The piece that I received was straight with perfect 90 corners and laid flat on my workbench with no noticeable warping to it.

I am quite impressed with the quality of this ½” Birch project panel. It has a high quality finish, is perfectly square, and lies flat with no bending or bowing whatsoever. It would look great stained or painted. The board was packaged well for shipping so it arrived to me without any defects. It’s worth noting the two sides have different finishes – one side appears to be four different strips of wood with clearly different grain patterns while the other side is one continuous piece.

Got this board to do a wedding sign for a special family friend. The wood grain is really nice and takes stain very well. Nice and clean lines, but just rustic enough to suit her style! The 1/4" thickness will make it nice and light. The board is a series of panels fused together which was just the look I was after. Came nicely boxed and protected. I'll be getting more of these for my projects!

Very high quality DIY piece of boarding. You could use this for so many different types of projects. I was initially planning to use for my son's old school photos for a Look back on the past school collage. Then, I looked around the room and thought "No, I have a better idea". I decided to remove my wall clock and the Family Live Laugh sign and attach to this plywood to rehang in the same spot in my living room above the mantel. This will assist in hiding the wall imperfections I've created over time from nail holes, etc., that I haven't yet been able to paint or repair. I think I'll probably take this down sometime and paint partially gray and partially redwood or something that showcases the sunburst clock. I'm pretty impressed with my idea. Nice product. Thanks!

This is a piece of plywood. Albeit a very nice piece of plywood. High quality in a plywood package. The ends show the different layers and the very precise cuts look clean. I didn't even need to sand the edges to avoid splinters. This is a heavy stock of wood, even at just 2x4 feet. Using this for small projects is easy, a few pieces for a shelf or a wall backer for tool organizing. The cut is exactly 24" by 48" by 3/4". The finish is good as would be expected. I had a small imperfection on one side but as a wood product, that does not bother me. I would suggest cutting carefully if using any power tools, as the outer Birch layer is thin. Cleans up well and sands smooth. I may need more and this may become my go-to for 3/4 plywood stock.

I used this panel to make Cornhole boards. I opted to use sheets precut to 2’x4’ rather than ripping down a larger piece of plywood solely to make the build faster and easier. I was impressed with the quality of this panel. “Rough Sawn” led me to believe I was going to be doing a lot of sanding to get it nice and smooth, but it was much higher quality than I expected. I performed a light sanding with 220 grit sand paper and it was ready to go. I’m very happy with the way it turned out!

I had purchased one of these smaller panels for some prototyping of a cabinet for my shop. As you can see in the pictures i found two problems with this panel. The first was that the face of the panel had large knotty patches that were uneven ad. This can be dealt with, especially ind would require filling prior to finishing. This also means that using a clear finish is out of the question. The bigger problem is that the panel had quite a few gaps, where the plys below the surface had holes or gaps. This can make an edge look unfinished - again not a huge issue if you are painting, it can be filled, but its just one more step.
