Featuring hardwood veneers cut from American-grown timber, these PureBond Aromatic Cedar Plywood Project Panels emit a cedar fragrance that stirs the senses. The reddish hue and natural wood grain of the cedar create a distinctive look that will earn accolades on your next woodworking initiative. Each 1/4 in. x 2 ft. x 8 ft. panel boasts all-wood construction with yellow poplar core substrate assembled with alternating cross bands for superb strength, flatness and rigidity. The soy-based PureBond technology is formaldehyde-free, keeping your home or office safe from any off-gassing of harmful fumes commonly associated with UF-constructed plywood. Water-resistance allows this 3-ply hardwood plywood to tolerate moisture better than urea formaldehyde-laden panels and the multilayered construction makes it less likely to warp than solid hardwood. It is an inexpensive way to craft visually alluring carpentry pieces like coffee tables, workbenches, shelves, toy chests, cabinets, bookcases, wall panels and more. Use these Columbia Forest Products panels knowing that the material comes from sustainably harvested forests that will be replenished for future generations.

Asked by: hiki
I don't know why not but I bought only a panel to put in the bottom of a trunk at the end of my bed and use it as bedding storage...works perfectly and is smooth and doesn't "pick" my blankets and other bedding.

Could these be used for porch ceiling?

I’m considering using these to panel a porch ceiling. We live in a dry climate but do get infrequent rain storms. Would these be OK if stained?
Asked by: Bcp
If the panels are protected from direct moisture (e.g. rain, etc) they should be fine to use to panel a porch ceiling. One thing to keep in mind, since these are 1/4" thick panels you will want to run these perpendicular to your roof supports to keep the panels from sagging ( or extra bracing if your are installing parallel to roof supports). They look really nice with a clear sealer or Natural Danish oil applied.

Customer Reviews

1/4 in. x 2 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Aromatic Cedar Plywood Project Panel (Free Custom Cut Available) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 189.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Ok, not what I expected I really hesitate to order plywood online because you cannot cherry-pick through the boards; so I was happy that this .5"x2'x4' board arrived in relatively good condition with no major dents and the board was not warped. But that's where my joy ends - upon closer inspection of the veneer, the voids are either not filled at all, not filled completely, or the filler isn't even the same color as the knot. It looks like a toddler filled the holes with play-dough and forgot to sand it down. On the bright side, the grain is really beautiful and nice to look at and the cedar smell is amazing - just don't know how long that will last based on the other reviews. I was going to make a small toy chest or storage box out of this and just seal the plywood with a clear lacquer, but I definitely can't do that with all the flaws. I really feel like my only option is to paint the sides that will be visible and just deal with the imperfections on the inside.

As expected, the 3/4 inch thick panels have aromatic cedar veneer on both sides; the 1/4" thick panels have cedar veneer on only one side. On the 3/4" panels often one side had fewer patches and imperfections than the other so I could choose a "show side". Some of the knot holes were not well patched and I filled them to smooth the rough edges with either CA glue or epoxy, depending on size. I ordered 11 panels with custom cutting to produce 27 separate pieces for my finished project. All the cuts, except one, were true and square and exactly the dimensions ordered. (The one out of square was slightly oversized and I was able to trim about 1/16th on one end to bring the entire piece into square and usable dimension for my project.) For the most part the core is solid, but among all 27 pieces 6-8 edges showed a void in the core layer just under the veneer. These places need a little extra care to avoid damaging the thin veneer layer. I put 1" edge banding on all exposed edges. Overall, I am pleased with the product and impressed by the precision cutting and the excellent packaging that insured all pieces arrived without damage from handling and shipping. The cut-offs were included and aided in setting up the machines for edge banding, fitting dados, etc. The veneer is a beautiful, aromatic natural product--fully meets my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful cedar veneers and full-thickness 3/4 plywood This cedar plywood is absolutely gorgeous and smells wonderful. I have gotten several pieces of this plywood and have yet to find a single void in the ply, plus the veneers are smooth (i.e., no splits, holes, or rough patches) and so don't require much sanding at all. Note that if you’re using them for a closet, like I am, you should not coat or finish the cedar if you want to enjoy the aroma and get any anti-moth benefits. Also, the ½” and ¾” are true to their nominal thicknesses and not undersized like most American-made plywood, but the ¼” piece was undersized a standard 1/32th of an inch (so 7/32” thick). I am using this to build a small shelving unit under my closet rod; the ¾” thick pieces will form the upright supports, the ½” pieces will form the internal shelves, and the ¼” piece is the “back” of the whole assembly. I was going to use solid cedar for this shelving unit but was happy to find this cedar-veneer plywood – it will be much more dimensionally stable than solid wood and still have that beautiful look and aroma for my closet.

The panels came well packaged and true to the pictures. I made four under bed drawers 12 inches deep. My wife loves the fact that she can store her items in cedar. I was not aware that cedar plywood even existed until I looked into it. Now I am getting more to line our main closet walls. I am very happy with the product.
