Product Overview

For DIYers and professional tradesmen who recognize the importance of going green and using natural timber harvested in a responsible manner, turn to this FSC-certified PureBond Poplar Plywood from Columbia Forest Products. Each 7-ply sheet features decorative poplar veneers on the face and back, which exhibit the warmth and beauty of natural hardwood to supply your carpentry creations with visual allure. Furthermore, the 23/32 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. panels are manufactured with a soy-based PureBond technology that is formaldehyde-free so it won't deteriorate air quality, as is common with UF-constructed sheets that are susceptible to releasing airborne contaminants over time. Intended for interior use, these poplar plywood panels are an affordable way to craft authentic hardwood-faced masterpieces such as built-in cabinets, entertainment centers, tables, shelves, headboards, wall panels and more. With an eye toward sustainability, Columbia takes pride in manufacturing this Earth-conscious product and takes seriously its responsibility in replenishing forests for future generations.

Questions & Answers


can it be used in a bathroom

Asked by clyde May 28, 2021

If it was properly sealed then it might be ok. I would be concerned about the humidity in the bathroom affecting the wood after a period of time. I used this sheet as a top for island counter and used several coats of sealer and then varnished. It has held up over the past 5 years with occasional retouching of the varnish. Personally, I would not use this as a counter for the bath and would opt for quartz or granite tops.

Can this plywood be used for sheating of roofs?

Asked by Alex April 17, 2021

No, that is not a good application for this product. This is meant for interior, decorative use only as the adhesive used is not waterproof.

Asked by Nougat November 6, 2020

Def not poplar ply, more like chip wood or some soft type white wood. Plus there’s a lot of voids :/

What type of wood veneer edge banding should I use with this?

Asked by Maize April 30, 2019

I haven't done any edging with this plywood. But its edges are as smooth and receptive as any other, so it should work well with any banding. It's just a matter of matching color. I haven't seen any poplar banding at HD, but white Birch or white melamine might work.

Asked by Snow March 27, 2019

Poplar, or any plywood veneer is too soft for a workbench top.

The panel thickness is just shy of 3/4"

I want to use this to do a DIY Plywood Plank Floor. Will Home Depot cut this into 8" wide planks...

Asked by Pat March 15, 2017

This wood is too soft for a floor. It will get chewed up pretty quickly. I would recommend hi-bor treated pine or red oak for about $8 more a sheet. Home Depot will only do single cuts on a sheet. At least, that's what the sign says. You can ask, but as a rule they don't do project cuts.

Will laminate adhere to this material?

Asked by chskeeper September 22, 2016

Yes it will.

How much does it weigh?

Asked by Buck October 17, 2015

It pretty heavy approx 70 lbs I'd say. But your HD should be able to help you rip it down to more manageable size. I did that.

This wood can be used to achieve a good finish. HOWEVER!! It does not have good quality control. I had 2 sheets bubble up and delaminate after I put on primer. had to spend a few hours patching.

Not for clear coat or stain!
Other reviews stating "thin veneer" are not exaggerated. The veneer is so thin that you can see right through to all of the knots and the wood grain in the ply beneath. They come right through and there is no hiding them. The grain in the ply beneath the surface also runs opposite of the grain in the veneer (which it is supposed to), which makes it doubly noticeable. If you are going to use this for project that you plan on painting then you can probably get away with it, otherwise DON'T buy this plywood.

This product is sturdy and the finish is nice. I did have an issue where there was a void inside after I ripped it down for some shop furniture. At the price point that was a little disappointing. The veneer isnt very thick and there are only 7 plys to it. As far as strength no issue there at all. It is very sturdy and heavy. I had a great experience as HD staff helped rip it down a little which made it more manageable. As it was for shop furniture (french cleat wall) I didnt feel the need to make a stink about the void in ply. I have purchased other hardwood ply before from HD and had no void issues; so that issue I'll consider an isolated incident. Would I buy again, sure. Especially if I dont want to make a 30 min trip to my closest dealer. Yes, for shop furniture. Show piece or home furniture I'd probably opt to take a trip and spend a couple extra bucks and get 11 ply sheet. So as far as a recommendation I'd say it depends what you plan on using it for. Hope this helps!

This is the third time that I've bought this plywood, I use it to make furniture. Occasionally, there are small gaps, but they're not big enough to compromise the structure of the sheet. The face of the sheets are beautiful, they're rock solid. Definitely buying again.

While planning my project I read the reviews for this product. That was a good decision because everything the reviews said turned out to be true. The edges WILL chip when you cut it. The top layer of ply WILL fray if sanded with a power sander. You MUST prime it with an oil based primer if your project requires a smooth surface. I'm building a TV stand that will be painted. I have constructed everything and primed the wood with Kilz interior oil-based primer. Next step is paint with Behr interior oil-based paint then finally adding drawer pulls. I used 1 1/2" SPAX screws. The screws beautifully into this plywood . SPAX says that their screws do not require pilot holes but I drilled pilot holes anyway. In addition to screwing the joints I used Titebond 3 wood glue. The plywood took the glue great. If you make sure to listen to the product reviews your project will turn out great. A wise man once said 'You can't get blood out of a stone'.

Good product at a good price
This is my second time to use Purebond plywood on a project, and I am once again very happy with the product. I have read other reviewers talk about voids and thin veneer, but as of yet the three different batches of Purebond I’ve used haven’t presented that issue. The plywood cuts easily with a 140 tooth circular saw blade, and is easy on the blade. The poplar I am using for this project has a super smooth finish, and as this project will be painted that is a plus. I did stain a small area to show how this plywood would appear when stained. Overall in my experience this is a quality product at a reasonable price.
