    A:  I would not recommend this product for use near a shower. It uses a glue that is not waterproof and could come apart if exposed to a lot of moisture. Call me if you have any questions 800-637-1609. Thanks - Michael

        A:  We do not recommend the bending panels for use in laser cutters. You can contact mhale@cfpwood.com for recommendations for this application. Thanks - Michael

          A:  I’m unfamiliar with the exact specifications of using a laser cutter, however, if you are able to cut plywood with them, you can cut this. This is plywood that is made to be easier to bend for curved applications. Using a laser cutter to cut designs in it, then bend into a cylinder and slip it over a glass candle would be beautiful. Hope this helps you.

          This plywood worked exceptionally well for the lingerie cabinet I used it on. The product was pliable enough to follow the contours of this cabinet. I used a wood filler to smooth the surface before finishing. The product exceeded my expectations.

            This product is designed to be used as a structural-type panel to achieve the desired curve, it is not considered to be a finished panel. It is not designed to lay flat, it is meant to be bent. This does not sound like the right product for your application. I'd be happy to work with you in finding something that will better meet your needs. Give me a call at 800-637-1609 and we can discuss products that may better suit your needs. Thank you -- Michael

              This plywood project panel appears to be completely free of interior voids or surface imperfections which makes it ideal for any use where appearance is important. Examining the edges it is not even possible to tell how many plies there are. It flexes easily so it can be used for any work that needs curvature in a single direction. Using either carpenters glue or epoxy glue very strong bonds are possible provided reasonable clamping time is allowed.

              This 3/8" panel is very flexible. Much more flexible that I originally thought it would be since 3/8" is fairly thick for a flexible material. The minimum bend radius is probably about 12-14 inches. If you need something more flexible than this, check out the 1/4" version of this product. I also have tried this and its bend radius was about 8". Overall it's a good looking product. It's much more solid than the 1/4" version, which I am a fan of because it requires less backing to make it stable and keep it in a uniform shape. There were a few areas on one of the surfaces that had gouges and cracks in it, which I was not very happy about. It's always easier to work with a product that has a nice smooth finish. But, if it's a problem for you you could always fill in the cracks before you apply the laminate or paper-backed veneer to your project. It's also probably important to note that these cracks were only found on one side, so you could most likely avoid having that side visible as another solution.

              This product will be great for any projects that require a rounded or contoured surface. It's very flexible and lightweight. I'm not sure on the exact minimum bend radius, but you could easily use this on any surface with a radius of 8-10 inches or greater. Any smaller and you might have a difficult time bending it into place, but it may work. The plywood is a bit rough on both sides, but it's also not intended to be a finish layer, so this isn't a problem for me. Just be sure to have enough support on the back side of the plywood when using it to make sure it's solid when finished. Since it's only 1/4 inch thick this plywood requires a sturdy backing to ensure it holds its form over time, and doesn't move when someone touches it.

              I used this project panels, but I would not recommend them for simple projects like making walls and/or cellings. They are too pricey (price twice higher compare to similar 4x4 wood panels). The product is perfect for "bending" and "curving" projects. The panels are very flexible and they have good texture. Material is soft. It is easy to cut, screw and nail with hammer, but it is also easy to damage corners. I think, it good material for professionals, but not for the DIY person like me - I spent more money, but I could not use all potential of the product. That is why I don't recommend it.

              Ordered this project panel for some holiday craft projects and it's going to work perfectly. This is a great size and I plan to cut it into multiple smaller signs. The wood has a nice grain to it and the boards are very flexible, which would be great for some uses. The finish is suitable for staining or painting and I plan to do some of both. I like the thinner boards because they aren't so heavy to ship or hang for seasonal signs.

              When I ordered this bending plywood I didn’t have a specific use in mind for it. I was just intrigued with the concept and wanted to check it out as I’ve never worked with anything like it. I am impressed with its ability to bend without breaking. The quality of the wood itself isn’t great, so whatever project I decide to make with this board will definitely be covered with a veneer, just as the product description suggests.

              I have built many projects that I had to bend wood. The problem is you have to soak the wood and then slowly bend while wet - then do more - I have had issues with some staining sometimes when doing fronts of bars. This wood - I was doubtful that it would work as I wanted. I went ahead and got the wood and decided to set the wood in the kitchen with a bend. This wood bent extremely well. I could do a long curve. It will not do a 90 turn instantly for those that wonder. It did get close to a 90 over 4 foot which is incredible. Get this wood if you are doing any curves - It is awesome.
