" A light weight ply with a good face. Pity I will not be varnishing them, they would look good.
There were two people who delivered them and they were very helpful and polite.

Pros: flexible and reasonably sturdy
Cons: size - 2400 mm x 1200 mm. you'll need a roof-rack!
" I cut the plywood board into eight strips (each 150 mm wide), which I used to form border edging to re-landscape a friend's garden. The plywood is 5.5 mm thick, which means it is sturdy enough (when screwed to battens driven into the ground) to hold back a grass edge, but also flexible enough to provide edges to curved borders. Some green wood stain finished things off before building up the ground with soil and sowing grass seed. Job done. Neat! "

" This board has an attractive finish which be varnished or painted. As it is only 5.5mm thick it needs pinning to a sturdy frame. This served well as a cupboard side and top. "

Pros: ok for our purposes
Cons: warped chipped and different colours
" I ordered two sheets. I purchased these because it was slightly cheaper than elsewhere, said they didn't warp and next day delivery was available.
A corner was chipped on both - about an inch - they were more than slightly warped on arrival but moreover, they were completely different colours. The colour doesn't matter for us as we have cut two semi circles to form a circle under a hot tub and painted with yacht varnish but the warping before even used does. The colour differentiation will also affect other customers as they may have wanted to use both pieces unpainted somewhere. I felt we were given 'odds and sods' to be honest but when tacked down and under a foam protector this product should still do the job. For others, I'm not so sure "

" Very few imperfections, corners square.
Nice wood, took primer and emulsion well and has given a nice finish.
I used 3.5mm TurboGold Woodscrews Double-Self-Countersunk to fix the ply to the frame and was able to set the screw holes even only 5mm from the edge without crunching.

Pros: 6 sheets excellent
Cons: 1 sheet not the same quality as the others
" Ordered 7 sheets of this plywood . 6 were excellent quality but one was definitely inferior and had been 'hidden' in the middle of the others when delivered.
It was a different colour and in fact appeared used. Because of the inconvenience I decided to take a chance in the hope it would look OK after painting.
The sheets were to line a summerhouse and the odd sheet is now evident. Very disappointed and would never order this type of product online again. "
