Veneered construction gives these decorative PureBond Birch Plywood Project Panels the strength, flatness and rigidity to satisfy the most discerning craftsman. Each 7-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 wills 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 3/4 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.

  • Decorative top and bottom veneers, measuring approximately 1/42 in. thick, exhibit the beauty and timeless quality of natural hardwood and are 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

So if Home depot cuts out the piece you need. Do you pay for the whole sheet? Or do they cost adjust?
Asked by: Ruffrider
I'm quite sure you'll pay for the entire sheet...pretty sure HD doesn't stock remnants or off-cuts beyond the usual 2'x4' half sheets.

Why is this Purebond 3/4" plywood only 0.703" thick? Has plywood been downsized again? For years, the "standard" for 3/4" had been downsized to 23/32" (0.719")...this Purebond plywood is even thinner than that. Almost impossible to create dadoes for furniture. Almost not worth buying this stuff anymore.
Asked by: Photog1514
This like everything else in our society today. Sellers, from restaurants to car dealers, increase their profits by downsizing their products and only raising prices moderately. If the "allowable" size is between X an Y your can bet that entire industry shoots for X. And don't forget, the the tolerances are being set by the industry, not some independent group. Soi it will do no good to boycott Pure Bond. You will have to boycott all higher quality plywood.

EVERY answer is incorrect except the first one from Colombia. This product has NO FINISH!! End of story. This ply has a veneer on each side and is sanded, but it has NO FINISH

Is Baltic birch plywood different than the birch plywood listed? If so, what is the difference? Thanks, johnv

Asked by: Johnv
¾” PureBond Birch is 7 ply and ¾” Baltic will have 13. Depending on the grade of the Baltic Birch – you may have football shaped wood patches in one side of the panel

3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 251.

I have been a union carpenter for 30 years and I was happy to see a greener alternative for plywood. I do most of my work for hospitals and my clients spec greener alternatives. I decided to try these first for my house because my wife has a terrible reaction to anything with formaldehyde in it. I needed 8 sheets of this product for doors I was making. I had to sort through the entire stack at the store, which took an hour, to find sheets that weren’t delaminated. Almost the entire pallet was unusable. I thought I had found 8 good sheets. But when I started working with them, they began delaminating, as well. I ended up fixing them myself with my own formaldehyde free glue and clamps. The result is plywood that was only paint grade. They were not clear enough to stain (see my photo). Like I said, I wanted to like this product, the market needs more products like this...unfortunately, this time it didn’t pay off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Plywood I rated it one star only because the rating scale didn't offer a "0" option!! I bought 3 sheets of this 3/4" finished plywood from HD to make carcasses for two 6 ft tall cabinets for our laundry room. The stability and quality of this plywood is absolute junk. I experienced warping up to 1.5" in 6 feet. More importantly, the warping wasn't just simple bowing, but an S-shaped warping which made installing 1.5" face frames impossible. With the number of significant voids in the plies, it's not surprising that this product is so unstable. A close examination of the plywood reveals widespread thickening and thinning of individual plies which is inherent in cheap wood and manufacturing. Furthermore, the plywood is somewhat brittle and splinters badly even with brand new, quality router bits and a $100 Tenryu saw blade. I had to relegate the two cabinets to the basement for simple storage shelves. I'm off to Austin Hardwoods next week to buy quality, real cabinet grade plywood!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended - read the review I have found the quality to be consistent and highly acceptable for staining and painting. I have experienced no cavitation problems in the core. I shopped around and purchased from two other suppliers. HD’s direct competitor sells a “similar” 5 layer core plywood for $2 more. I found their product to have some cavities in the core and the veneer was not as smooth. There was also more splintering along the edges of the sheet. The third source was an 18 ply furniture grade product (highly recommended for the 5% of shoppers making fine furniture). In the $33 to $46 price range, I prefer the ¾” birch over the oak and pine plywood. I find I have more uses in future projects for the leftover pieces, since they can be painted or stained. For the “woodworker” looking for all-round good value, this is my recommendation. I have recently switched to water base stains and finishes and have had minimum problems with standing fibers following the application of the stain and finish. My evaluation is based on the purchase of 21 sheets of ¾” birch from December 2012 to February 2013.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Look Elsewhere My 4x8ft sheet of Birch "5" ply (with very thin .03" real wood veneers-not really another "Ply") arrived from truck shipment in good condition. For storage and eventual use, I had to rip into 2ft x 8ft sections. I didn't have any veneer tear outs and didn't run across any laminate voids. The sheet had no bows or dips (very flat) and the factory edges were very square. However, I was disappointed in the quality of the Birch grain veneer, as the solid thin sheet has very little "typical character" of other birch products I've used in the past. Also, I'd really have preferred a full .750" overall thickness (not .705) which a veneer thickness of 1\16" could have accomplished, additionally creating "real world" wood finishing stability for carpenters! With these issues, I do not have faith I can get a quality project complete. Till these product quality standards improve, I'll pay much more from other manufactures to get a sheet finish that I can reliably work with and one that I know will last!

Wood isn't horrible, however there are quite a few voids in the wood which were uncovered when CNC routing. The core seems to rip out in cork-like chunks when routing or ripping. Veneer is ok when looking at the sheet overall, however the veneer seems overly brittle. Around 4 of the 10 sheets they delivered are warped a good 3 inches from center, which was disappointing. As for delivery, I asked for 2 few sheets out of the bunch to be cut down before delivery which they never did. I even called to make sure they had the cut request on file and they repeated back what I had asked for in a prior call. Also, the delivery driver damaged 2 sheets while setting the lot down with his forklift. All in all, it wasn't a bad purchase. If you're looking for cheap wood with not much expectation these sheets will work good. Can't say much about delivery other than if you're trying to save time and effort by having them deliver the wood, think twice. The wood they chose was overall subpar and with them damaging a few sheets on delivery I'd say save your money and headache by making the trip yourself next time.

The risk of delivery of these panels at Home Depot's selection (along with 14 other 1/2- in. panels), is that you receive pieces that are warped. I could easily see the stack on the truck bowed on the ends (there is always flex with the weight and moisture). Some had portions of the top ply-layer that were stripped/split. I lay them flat on the floor (basement build-out) to get acclimated, use filler and sand as necessary. I used these panels to make cabinet shells and the 3/4-in to make base cabinet doors. Rips with a carbide blade along the grain are smooth, but crosscuts always yield some splinters on end. The sanded birch panels take well to a variety of stains, look very nice and are sturdy. I have bought a ton of these from Home Depot, owing to price, utility and availability.

Each sheet must be closely examined on each side for defects before purchase. It is not uncommon to go through a dozen sheets to find 4 or 5 suitable for purchase. Unfortunately, with time, prices go up and quality goes down.

However, I consider it paint grade for anything else. There are issues of the birch laminate chipping and separating on the edges. My experience has been that you need to dig deep into the bunk to find a decent sheet.
