We purchased a 4 x 8 sheet of this oak veneer plywood to build a couple of pieces of furniture for my sons dorm room. We quickly discovered how thin the oak veneer was on this product. Unless you are willing to omit final sanding altogether or use only the lightest touch, it is very easy to sand through the veneer and into the lamination beneath. Additionally, we found numerous voids in the lamination beneath the oak veneer after the paper thin oak laminate simply broke off into the hole. We were forced to use wood filler because we were too far along in the project but it looks terrible. I will never make that mistake again

This product barely worked for us, but not if you need both sides visible. Lots of holes in inner plys so if you need finished ply with visible edges may not be for you. We wanted to stain but had to end up painting most of the plywood.
lots of imperfections typically on one side. so if you are building something where both sides are exposed, this will be a bad choice. The dimensions and weight makes it difficult to screen through the pile at store, if you are by yourself. if HD does a quality check on their shelf stock, this would be a great help for the customers

The product was somewhat a disappointment. The finished product came out good but there was issues with the plywood that I was trying to avoid by buying it out of the same bundle. The three pieces took stain differently. It took a lot of time to match final stain color between the pieces. There were voids in the core. This made joining some of the pieces a bit interesting. I was able to finish the project with satisfactory results and used it this past week after final install.

The oak veneer looks good. When stained / finished it matches solid red oak perfectly. The oak veneer is incredibly thin.. be sure to build in a way that you can hide your seams, you may need to buy an extra sheet in order to build in such a way. Think ahead and it's good.

This wood is awful. I had to sort through the entire stack to find one that was the least cracked (forget voids... this is just in the veneer!). The 'inside' layer is just dreadful. I realize that one side would be a better veneer than the other, but the back looks more like underlayment than oak. Unfortunately, for furniture that would show the inside, this will look quite strange.
Even worse: I had a small bit of water come in under my garage door wicked into the corner of this plywood. Rather than just getting wet, the sheets soaked up the water and the glue completely let go, causing the plywood to curl (see picture). None of my other plywood was ruined (various pine and sandeply caught a bit of the water as well). I worry now that if I try to finish this, will the glue just let go and pull the veneer off??
Stick with real plywood with real glue
