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.
  • 7-ply sheet is assembled with smooth, patch-free birch veneers
  • 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
  • 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
  • Common: 3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft.; Actual: 0.703 in. x 48 in. x 96 in.
  • Direction of the grain is the length of panel
  • Each panel weighs approximately 70 lbs.
  • Grade: C-3 - see grading guide for additional information
  • Available in additional species- maple and red oak
  • Note: Product may vary by store

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.

The last sheet I bought averaged 0.665" thickness (not quite 17mm).

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 185.

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.

Both sides had good appearance. I used it immediately after purchasing about a week ago. Used for garage cabinet doors and shelves. Met my expectations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Defective Product Purchased a sheet recently for a childs toy box. I have purchased sheets in the past for cabinets and it was great! Cut for the box, assembled with trim and poplar, and sanded the box. Everything looked great. As soon as I applied primer, voids under the veneer bubbled up and thr joints between veneer sheets lifted. I was able to peel up the veneer with my finger nail! The final product looks terrible, even as i continued to wood fill and sand. Worst of all, HD did not stand by their product and refused to offer any refund or store credit. Unfortunately I dont know how to identify a defective sheet vs a good sheet at the store. I will be seeking a new plywood source.

Picked up 5 sheets of very nice 9 ply Birch one day and went back the next and the Columbia Birch ply that was on the stack was 7 ply. The 9 ply is a much better product and I wish they would only carry that. The 7 ply is OK

Pure junk, yet sells for the same price that the product with twice the plies sold for just two years ago. It delaminates easily, is full of voids and is less than the lower metric equivalent. Will not be buying anymore of this plywood from Home Depot. Some purchasing agent got a huge deal on this garbage. There are better offerings at dedicated lumber suppliers. Buying this just promotes the availability of more of the same. It must have been made while still quite wet, causing it to shrink excessively and deteriorate the glue layers in the process. It's closer to 5/8" plywood than 3/4". Call it what it is and quit advertising it as 3/4". 99.9% of America is not using metric tape measures incremented in 10ths of a mm. Pay more for full dimensioned, domestic materials. You'll actually save in the long run.

Like others have mentioned, the laminate is somewhat thin, so if you have an older blade, a wobbly blade, or just a cheapo saw that can't get up to the higher rpm, this will splinter all over the place. For the price, I would have expected a bit better quality, but if you cut this with a higher quality saw, you should have no problems. This is extremely easy to use a kreg jig on, and the board was straight as an arrow with no bowing. The wood grain actually looks nice, but pay attention at the store as many had some wood filler in them because of scratches and dings. All in all, not bad, but a bit expensive considering how thin the laminate is.

All of them delaminated and the birch veneer splinters terribly on a table saw. Can't recommend using it.
