Hello,

I have a project that requires formaldehyde free plywood and and we are thinking of making the plywood ourselves. Does anyone know what kind of carpenter glue is formaldehyde free.

Thanks

Purebond Plywood at Home Depot is formaldehyde free. I would imagine the other suppliers also have a formaldehyde free plywood.

Thanks, Katcore1

how big is your project??
what size do you think you will make??
what wood will you be using for the internal plys??
how many sheets are you thinking of making??
what thickness do you need to make??

I guess just to clarify – - – you are making laminated doors? interior or exterior? how wide?
will they be hollow core or solid plywood? hang on hinges, hang on rails or interior pocket doors?
are you going to purchase the plywood skins from a store? or make them yourself.
trying to find formaldehyde free wood glue is very understandable.
we just don’t understand the rest of the project you are getting into.
(and why do you need formaldehyde free in the project).

not knowing how wide or thick your doors will be, and their use, is still a question.

just out of curiosity, I took one minute out of my day and called TiteBond.
the technical service rep said that Franklin Titebond II and III do not
contain formaldehyde. and he further added, they do not use formaldehyde
in ANY of their products what-so-ever.
so – you can feel safe using any TiteBond product on any of your projects.

- RobHannon

I’d go with Rob’s suggestion. Why would you want to spend all of that TIME just to make Plywood?

It sounds to me like the project may require 16’
long veneers on the face. It sounds like
a job for a giant millwork shop, but if the
client has the budget…

8’ cores can be joined for veneering if that’s
an issue. Done right and properly supported
I don’t think the joint will show through the
veneer face. For a giant slab door I might have
a reputable shop weld up a flat steel frame,
screw substrate to it and vacuum bag it for
veneering.

OK I am super curious now. What sort of project is using 8 16’ doors? Is wood the best material for this?

Have your say...
