Cost-Effective

Standard sheets are 4’ x 8’. Or choose smaller PureBond Project Panels at homedepot.com to minimize waste.

Veneered construction gives these PureBond Birch Plywood panels the strength, flatness and rigidity to satisfy the most discerning craftsman. Each 3-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 1/4 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.
  • 3-ply hardwood plywood panel is assembled with smooth, patch-free birch veneer applied to only the face side of this panel; the back of the panel is not intended to be exposed
  • 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 veneer, measuring approximately 1/42 in. thick, exhibits the beauty and timeless quality of natural hardwood and is 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: 1/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft.; actual: 0.203 in. x 48 in. x 96 in.
  • Direction of the grain is the length of panel
  • Each panel weighs approximately 21 lbs.
  • Grade: C-4 - see grading guide for additional information
  • Available in additional species- Maple and Red Oak

As long as you firmly affixed the panels to the wall and gave them a coat of primer like KIlz or Zinsser before applying the wall paper, it should work out well. Considering that you're going to cover the panels, you may want to consider hardboard panels of sandeply panels for a bit of cost savings. Good luck.

Not within tolerance
Veneer quality is fine, however the product actually measures 5/32. While this may be acceptable in some applications, I can not use this. Disappointing.

Closer to 1/8 inch
The birch surface is nice and I like the more health friendly bonding materials, but this board was so shy of the advertised size I am unable to use it. This might be 5/32 at most. The website says 0.203 minimum. In an earlier comment a company rep even stated that they expect it to be 0.18, so the listing is misleading and the product appears to lack quality control. Also the core looks like pressed material, not hardwood like other brands of plywood.

Response from CFP Customer ServiceMay 26, 2020
I apologize for the issues you had with our product. The actual thickness is closer to a 3/16" after sanding and finishing. We will look at the website and update it for accuracy. In the meantime, contact me at mhale@cfpwood.com or 336-291-5869 and we can discuss options for finding material that may better suit your needs. Thank you - Michael

I like this product & would have given it 5 stars but I wish the real thickness was much closer the nominal 1/4”. I prefer not to use 1/4” MDF (with the real 1/4” thickness) especially for bathroom vanity drawers or faces so in order to cut the grooves that matches the thickness of it, I have to use miter saw since it is difficult to find a 5mm router bit.

I was only looking for a 4' x 4' pieces, and Home Depot did not have it. I used to put on the back side of a cabinet I am making. So I bought the full sheet, it served it's purpose. Since then I have found some other projects to use the remainder.

I had beautiful new kitchen cabinets installed and, with the holidays fast approaching, I needed temporary countertops. Purchased one sheet of birch plywood, covered it with contact paper also purchased at Home Depot, and, Voila, countertops, which are still holding up beautifully after almost two months!! HD did the straight cuts and not-so-handy me did the other cuts at home using my Dremel.
