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

Questions & Answers

Would this be difficult to cut shapes with a jigsaw?

Asked by: Gb
No not at all, you want to use a fine tooth blade so the veneer does not splinter.

It's not actually plywood, is it?

The photo shows a thick inner layer of something uniform, not wood.

The place I'm renting has an UGLY cork tiled wall in the bedroom! Desperately seeking inexpensive ways to cover it up.

The cork tiles are a bit thicker than normal bulletin board tiles. Maybe they were intended for the floor. Will this panel cover a cork tiled wall? If it does, any suggestions on how I should adhere it to the cork? Can the panel be painted? Thanks for your help!

As a renter you need your landlords permission to make such changes that could be permanent.

1/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 54.
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.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent plywood especially for indoor projects! I have young children and I enjoy building furniture for them as they grow. I really like using the PureBond Birch plywood in my projects for them. The veneer layer is always smooth and clear and I have yet to find a void in the inner plys. The fact that it's formaldehyde-free puts my mind at ease knowing it's one less thing to worry about when building a bed or dresser that my children will be around often. The best part is it's easy to pick up at my local Home Depot! I never have to travel far to restock! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best you can buy so why buy what you pay for??!?! Overall it's a very stable product. I'm not one of those so-called "green"  type people but breaking down this formaldehyde-free soy based product you will notice a much more pleasant work environment. Cuts easier then readily available sheet good. It moves past the blade easily while leaving little to no chip out. As long and recent mineral voids are not toovisible, this project is perfect. Great stuff and first choice. Give it a time ry,  you won't regret it.  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PureBond for the Win! Regular plywood just wasn’t cutting it. While searching for quality material to utilize for our various projects, we discovered that PureBond Plywood is the very best plywood available at the big box stores. PureBond plywood is now our top choice for any projects that require plywood. We have used PureBond plywood to make toy boxes, custom wooden signs, drawers, workbenches, and more! Not only is the quality great, but it is also environmentally friendly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Enjoyable Project! I just built a bunk bed for my two daughters out of PureBond plywood and what a fun project! This plywood was a pleasure to work with; the birch veneer is high quality and beautifully matched, the core is solid and stable, and the material is very consistent. I chose to leave the edges exposed as part of the overall design and because the inner plys are so solid and the edges finished very well. The material stained and finished beautifully. Buying an American made product without formaldehyde couldn't be better for a project for my home and daughters. I have several places smaller pieces left that will go into more projects to come and I will be getting more for some cabinets next. I highly recommend this for your next project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible plywood I recently build a desk for me 7yr old son to do homework. I made it out of 3/4 Purebond birch plywood. I was extremely pleased and impressed with the high quality product that Purebond manufactures. There were absolutely no voids in the plywood. The veneers were flawless, they sanded well, and more importantly took stain evenly without any splotches. I would highly recommend this product to anyone making their products. Well done Purebond.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have done two very large built-ins in my house...both painted all white. The first I used PureBond Birch from Home Depot, the second one I cheaped out and went with something cheaper from another home center...bad idea! The PureBond had way better veneer layer with very minimal defects, if any at all. I spent way to much time and energy filling divots and such in the cheap stuff...very annoying! PureBond cuts nice, has minimal voids, take finish/paint nice, etc. I've gone back to Home Depot for plywood every time since for all sorts of projects. Nothing is more aggravating than bad materials when you are trying to build something nice. I have a number of cabinet projects on my list and I'll be using PureBond for those when the time comes. Thanks! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream to work with I always use purebond when I am making a new piece of futniture. Most furniture I make is for kids and I feel it is much safer for them to use an environmentally friendly product. I live 5 minutes from Home Depot and it is always there in stock and only about 10 dollars more than the kind with chemicals. That is such a small price difference for something so important. It also takes stain beautifully. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
