yes. we used primer and a good quality paint and it look great.
How much is the 3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft board, I can’t see the price for it?
Asked by Sam June 13, 2020
I believe it was $55.00.
can you cut this to a size 4x4 ft
Asked by Jenny May 28, 2020
Yes you can. The board is slightly larger then 4x8. It should be exactly 4 feet wide but slightly longer then 8 feet. It could be divided in half but would not be an exact 4x4. But it could be trimmed to be exactly 4x4 feet.
Asked by rr April 5, 2020
I would say it's around 50 or 60 pounds. I no longer can carry a full sheet so I have HD cut it in half for me (this is a free service).

what is the average moisture content of this product
Asked by Matt September 16, 2019
Note: Product may vary by store
Specific gravity: Usually less than 1, but varies depending on wood species and moisture content.
so you have to go to your local store find out the name of the manufacturer of the wood you want to purchase, they sell at that store then ask what the moisture content is of that exact type of wood product.

How much does a sheet weight approximately? I know this can vary buy I'm looking for a ball park
Pretty forgiving and easy to cut. Lots of voids, but was completely fine for my application. Didn't have any serious issues with delamination or lack of glue.

The 3/4 in Birch Plywood is perfect for making storage item, cabinets, etc. Easy to cut using my saw with the Rockwell cutting attachment to cut pieces to size. The plywood needs just a light sanding to provide a smooth surface (Except for the foot prints delivery company walked on top of the first piece. Easy to glue/nail finish strips to raw edges to give a more finish look to completed project.
This sheet of birch has a nice grain finish to it that goes the 8 ft. length. It is made of 5 layers. Some of the 4 ft. end layers have about a 1/2" space in them. With a good sharp blade this cuts very nice and smooth. When staining it takes the stain very well and evenly. This is a nice piece of plywood to work with and makes a quality looking project in the end.
Not good. Got two loads of it in. Liked the first load until I started using it and the voids inside made it unusable for a finished product. Whole sections without anything under the laminate just made it like a bubble. As soon as it's cut, it deflates and gets ripples in it. Second shipment in just looked like bad period. Had to use it for paint only and even then, in areas that don't show.
I used the plywood to redo my closet. It did the job and looks great. We did not my stain it because my wife loves the why the burch looked. I even made drawer fronts with it and routed the edges. Well worth the price for this product.
I normally purchase my sheet goods at a local lumberyard. Purebond was reocmmended to me because the glue is formaldehyde free and I'm looking to make greener choices in my building. I made the stupid mistake of not measuring the thickness of the plywood. I spent a long time making exact cuts to minimize waste then fast forward to me assembling my project and my width cuts don't fit by 1/8". If you're a novice DIY'er like me please note that even though it has 3/4" stamped on the side of it, It' not 3/4 " thick. Sure wish I had not used glue.
