will Home Depot cut my plywood for me

cut plywood
Asked by: keith
Hi, I'm happy to answer your question. Yes, Home depot does cut wood. How ever they do not offer precision cuts, so the tolerance is 1/2 inch to any and all cuts for the dimensions requested. Unless other arrangements are made with your local home depot, all cutting requests must be made in store at time of purchase. The amount of free cuts varys by location, please contact your local home depot for more information on their policy.

Shed construction Question

Hello, I am attempting to put some flooring in my shed. Will this wood be a solid choice if I already have a floor with gaps between each plank approximately 1/8" - 1/4". I want to seal up the floor from the weather, insects and critters.

3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. PureBond Birch Plywood (FSC Certified) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 80.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I just want to join the chorus and say that this plywood is horrible. It has an attractive veneer... I just want to join the chorus and say that this plywood is horrible. It has an attractive veneer, is flat, but it ends there. It's loaded with voids, splits easy, and the factory edges are rough and loaded with splinters. I paid good money for a healthy plywood but I don't know why that gives them free license to give us low-grade veneers. I'm looking elsewhere and if I don't find an alternative, I'll just improve the ventilation in my shop and start using a sealer meant to keep VOCs at bay.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PURE GARBAGE The only reason I am giving 1 star is because zero isnt an option. I am a professional cabinet maker with 25 years experience and this junk is not even "shop grade" or D grade material. Surface veneer has voids that dont appear until a finish is applied. Furthermore, there are areas that the veneer is so thin you can see through to the black glue layer below. I tried to return it but the store wouldnt give me a credit as I had cut the sheets. (About 10 total) If you are a professional that guarantees your product, DO NOT USE!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product OK, this is about the Columbia 3/4" (nominal) plywood sheets, I'd like to offer some comparisons here. Four years ago I did all the benches and shelves in my shop with Sande plywood. I didn't have any issues with delaminating or veneer tearout and the shop has seen a lot of use in the past four years with no issues as regards the items built with that plywood. I also did the interior cabinets of two RVs with the Birch Sande plywood and they both function and look great to this day. Recently (Dec 2015) I bought three sheets of the Columbia Bond 3/4" plywood to build a fold-up HO train table for my grandson. The Columbia veneer is quite thin, I believe about 1/42". Being this thin, an exceptionally good glue-bond is required to minimize tear-out on both cuts and holes that are drilled, even with appropriate backing to prevent tearout. A voidless substrate is also required immediately under the veneer in order to insure a continuous bonding surface. The Columbia Bond exhibited worse tearout than the Sande, both with cuts and drilling. I attribute this both to the veneer thinness and substandard glue and/or glue application in manufacture. It should also be noted that there are more voids in the Columbia product than in the Sande product I used four years ago, voids are more critical in the Columbia plywood as the 3/4" product is only five plys (which means each void is thicker/deeper) while the Sande is seven plys, minimizing the effect of any voids. Structurally, the Columbia Bond is, in my opinion, inferior to the Sande plywood I got from Home Depot four years ago, but I can't compare it to today's product since I haven't used any recently. I will say, however, that I will not be buying any more Columbia Bond plywood in the future, based on my most recent experience with it. I don't expect Baltic Birch from a big-box store, but I do expect a serviceable shop-grade plywood for fifty bucks a sheet, this product is neither.
