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.

  • PureBond hardwood plywood is an environmentally friendly, cost-competitive alternative to panels manufactured with urea formaldehyde (UF), which may degrade air quality over time

  • 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

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
Yes, this is happening to a lot of plywood. To cut accurate dadoes, I use a router with a 1/2" bit and make two passes.

Is this finished on both sides?
Asked by: shelves
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 292.
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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good outside bad inside I bought a sheet of this to build a cabinet to mount a router table on. The outside veneer looks good. when I cut it, I found the surface birch veneer was not glued down in many places and big strips peeled off and I had to glue them back down. Also there are a lot of voids in the core. One of the doors that I cut had a 1/8" x 1/4" x 1/2" void right at the corner of the door, and I had to fill it with wood filler. There were many other voids in edge cuts. I have built many projects using birch and oak plywood. This is the poorest quality sheet I have ever bought. Not a professional grade as labeled by Home Depot. I will happily pay more for better quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best but not the worst either If you are very picky when selecting your sheets in store you will have a reasonable quality hardwood ply. Although you may still not be able to detect sheets with larger voids, I've gotten a few. Anyways I have built several custom made cabinets using this and overall has worked okay. I always buy an extra to have on hand just in case I come across a sheet that has larger voids. I try to use these ones for smaller cabinet pieces if I can. It does take a clear coat finish beautifully. As others have mentioned it does have a thin veneer but this has not been an issue for me. Just be selective!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flat & Solid with Some Issues This five ply plywood, plus two thin veneers, is not warped at all and feels very solid. Unlike many lumber products these days the size was as advertised, a full 8' by 4' by 3/4". It did arrive with damage to one corner so that few inches will not be usable. Closer inspection also revealed some gouging on the board face and three areas near the edge where the veneer had split. The accompanying photos illustrate these points. I would recommend the product but with the caution that the purchaser knows what they are going to use the board for and is aware of any issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad, but you definitely need a better saw to cut through this cleanly. Like others have ment... Not bad, but you definitely need a better saw to cut through this cleanly. 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Very disappointed in the quality. I do a lot of custom furniture building. Only recently, I've had the same problem as others have reported - veneer extreme thin and peels off - many voids in the glue - ripples on the finished side when varnished - and another problem no one has mentioned - not visible when purchased, only after cut and stained - major splotches on the finished side that obscures the grain, the splotches appear to be glue. This has happened on multiple purchases at different HD stores.

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 4 out of 5 by from Good wood for rough cabinetry If you're looking for fine furniture building, go elsewhere. But for "pretty good" furniture and cabinets, this is a great value and product. Other reviews mention many voids and delamination, but I have been through a half-dozen sheets already building cabinet carcasses for some built-ins, and have had no issues with that at all. The plies are solid and I've had no issues with tearout or blowout in cutting 3/4" dados. In all, I've only seen very minimal variation in thickness. Some other reviewers reported wide variations, but I have seen only a couple hundredths of an inch on one sheet. But again, if you're looking for perfection, you'll probably be shopping elsewhere, dealing with solid wood, and working it all yourself. Highly recommended product.
