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
  • The decorative top veneer, measuring approximately 1/42" 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
  • Note: Product may vary by store

1/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 58.

Low rating is because the sticky label was on the "better" side and was difficult to remove. I used mineral spirits and am not sure whether the area treated will stain well. If you insist on putting on a sticky label there should be instructions on the label on how to remove it without effecting additional staining etc.

This is exceptional luan (plywood). I had a high quality cabinet which needed a new back board. I used this product and couldn't be more pleased. It cuts really well, no splintering. What I really appreciated though was that it stains really, really well. You won't regret paying the premium for this board, its definitely high quality. As a matter of fact Home Depot was the only "box store" in my area that carried anything like this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not really plywood Over time, the surface layer peeled back to reveal a layer of MDF. The peeling was only a little annoying, but to see that the inner layer was a composite was very annoying. It is my understanding that something called plywood should be layers of wood - which is what I was told at another lumber yard, where I recently bought some Baltic birch. Am I entitled to a refund, or do I just not understand what can and cannot be called "birch plywood"?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for scroll sawing, drawer bottoms, non structural back panels I chopped this nice big sheet of 1/4 plywood into bits. I made 12" square panels for my students to attack with a scroll saw, CNC router, and laser cutter. I used a 10"x30" strip to form the back panel of a shallow "Shaker-ish" wall cabinet, and I cut up the rest to make 12"x20" bottom panels for drawers. The material behaved nicely in the scroll saw using a 12 TPI blade. It responded well to being cut up for tab and slot designs with a 1/16" end mill on the CNC router, and the surface veneer rastered nicely with the laser. To cut it with the laser, I made two fast passes. It is three ply, with one surface veneer slightly thicker than the other. It does want to curl in larger panels so it needs to be supported on all edges. I made the convex side face into the cabinet and upward on the drawer bottoms so that the structure of the cabinet and the mass of the items stored in the drawers would tend to force it flat. Well supported, there are no major problems. The smaller pieces, when tabbed and slotted together in birdhouse sized objects, needed a bit of pushing to overcome some very slight curl, but no more than I have experienced with very expensive "aircraft grade" plywood from the hobby shop. Good stuff and I will generally keep several sheets on hand in the school shop in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Plywood is never the final thickness listed. If you want true 1/4" try MDF. This is standard 1/4" plywood which the actual size is 7/32, it is always stamped on the face. Plywood also swells and contracts its thickness and you have to account for a tolerance of at least 1/32 or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Plywood I have been woodworking for a number of years now, first as a framer not as a finish carpenter, and this PureBond Birch from my latest project was phenomenal. There are very few voids in the plys, the faces were smooth and held up great to cutting. The plywood was also flat and not bowed, which was great for the display cabinet I was building. Even though this plywood cost a little more the quality makes it worth it, as well has not having formaldehyde or other toxins just an added bonus. From here on all my plywood projects will include PureBond! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
