The beauty and warmth of natural hardwood shines through on these PureBond Red Oak Plywood panels from Columbia Forest Products. Assembled using a soy-based PureBond technology, these 3/4 in. x 2 ft. x 8 ft. sheets feature American-grown timber throughout with decorative red oak face and back veneers that produce stellar results on DIY woodworking projects. Using a proper saw blade, these sheets can be custom-cut to suit an assortment of carpentry applications, including construction of furniture, shelves, bookcases, built-in cabinets, media centers, headboards and more. This formaldehyde-free plywood is a cost-competitive alternative to potentially health-hazardous UF boards that may release air-degrading fumes over time.

      Q:I would like to make a flat pilates mat that will have 2? foam covered with vinyl fabric. Size 24?x 80?. The mat would need to be able to withstand someone standing on it too. Which plywood would be recommended? Strictly indoor use. Thanks

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Ellen, Any of the 3/4" options from Columbia Forest Products would work for you. The 3/4" plywood is strong enough to hold a person standing on it. I envision the panel lying flat on the ground.

        A:  I wouldn't recommend our product for stairs as is it intended for cabinetry, closets, etc. I would try checking with someone at Home Depot. I'm sure they would know exactly what to recommend for what you are needing.

          Red oak panel had slight bow but otherwise OK
          The 3/4" x 2' x 4' red oak panel had slight bow and did not suit my needs, so I returned it to my nearest Home Depot store. The delivery was a day and a half earlier than expected. However, the driver left the package in the grass near the highway, in a field adjacent to my driveway. I discovered it only after checking my email late that afternoon. That location is approximately 900 feet from my house. It was on the ground about 5 hours which may have contributed to the slight bow.

            This was an incredible value. It was carefully cut to my specifications and mailed to the house. The cuts were accurate. I used it to repair a rotted out cabinet due to a leaky valve. It is higher quality than what was there already.

            Columbia Forest Products can be depended upon for its quality products. As a cabinetmaker, I prefer plywood with a solid core rather than MDF. This 2 foot by 4 foot panel was absolutely level, square and plumb. There were no surface defects, and I didn't need to prep the board before I used it. The panel cut easily and did not "feather." It remained stable through the veneering process. My customer was impressed with the finished tabletop. Kudos also to the Home Depot for offering shipping on these craft size panels. My panel arrived in a reinforced shipping box to protect the panel. No mashed corners! Other competitors do not offer shipping at all. Home Depot's price was also lower than the competition by several dollars. This was an all-around great experience.

            I am very happy with the 3/4 x2ft. x4ft. red oak plywood cut to size and sanded to a very smooth surface. It is for a custom desk I'm building for my Sweeties Birthday. . I ordered 1" x 2" red oak boards for trim to glue around the edge of the red oak plywood. and stained both with a rich finish and several coats of varnish. Edge trim took very little sanding to match up with top. The desk plans came from Pinterest farm style desk with a few changes of adding drawers instead of cubby's and putting drawers on left side for my left handed Sweetie. This was my first job to build anything like this, I was very pleased the way it turned out.

              A fine, high quality piece of ply. That I'm using for drawer fronts. Will definitely order more for other projects, but this arrived with 2 slightly crushed corners. I'm sure it was from shipping. Since I don't need every square inch this time, I'm keeping it. Overall very happy with the quality.

                Great Plywood Project Panel
                This 3/4in.x 2ft.x4ft. Red Oak Plywood is perfect for most small projects. You can carry this size panel in the back seat or trunk. The "half sheet" panel is ideal for handling. Light weight and easy to carry anywhere. The packaging is such that the panel is well protected for shipping and handling. The edges are void free making the edges easy to sand and paint or stain. It’s a water-resistant compilation that tolerates moisture better than formaldehyde-bonded plywood, while the 7-ply layering makes it less likely to warp than solid hardwood. The decorative hardwood panel is assembled with a soy-based PureBond adhesive that won’t emit airborne contaminants over time, as UF-constructed plywood is prone to do. These panels are available in larger sizes.

                Very Good
                Overall, this was a very good quality sheet of plywood. The veener did have one damaged spot (see photo), hence 4 stars. Otherwise it was a very good sheet and was very flat.

                Just the right size you need for projects.
                Here's a product that comes in just the size you need without having to deal with full sheets, extra expense, and waste. It's easier to transport, and not too heavy. I received one of the 2x4 panels, Red Oak, in 3/4" thickness. The 3/4" ply was strong enough to be used as shelving and would work fine for any type of sturdy application. Be sure to use a fine plywood blade in the circular saw to get a nice fine cut, with very little splintering. Edges sanded fine. Veneer is a good thickness. I did not have a chance to finish mine yet, but it appears that both sides of this sheet are ready for some stain and several coats of Varathane (or equivalent). Good quality grain. It handled screws with no issues so the quality of the laminates and layers were good (no pockets). Overall, it got the job done, and looks great to boot!
