Product Information

Birch throughout plywood is made from only Birch veneers of the same thickness, glued and laid up in alternating directions to the required thickness. It thus provides a superbly consistent strong panel with known engineering characteristics. At the same time the aesthetically pleasing, fine tight grain of the BB face is suitable for all types of surface finish ( or none ) as required. Please be advised that some suppliers offer a Birch faced product made up with alternating veneers of other species – sometimes known as twin ply – this will not have the same consistent strength/engineering characteristics, stability or longevity of our Birch throughout product.

Key Features

  • Strong, consistent and measurable engineering performance
  • High quality aesthetically pleasing BB faces
  • Excellent cutting and machining properties
  • Board sizes 2440 x 1220mm in 12 & 18mm thicknesses ex stock

The ability to calculate the engineering performance of Birch throughout plywood renders it suitable for many and varied end uses. Used extensively within the furniture industry, it is also used in the high end packaging industry for boxing scientific and musical instruments. In the engineering sector it is used for pattern making.

The Birch Ply was of excellent quality - no warping or excessive knots etc. - great for furniture making

Top quality and beautiful product. Sturdy AF too - just what you need when you’re starting out as a beginner woodworker.

Great quality sheet. Will order more soon

This type and grade of Plywood is generally used for furniture construction. The sheets I received were riddled with knots and plugs, and one sheet was badly twisted. Very poor. Twisted sheet was certainly no good for furniture construction, and the supposed BB/BB grade was more like C grade. Disgusting. Didn't respond to my request to return. Got ripped off.

There are slight bulges in the wood which makes making jigs difficult, but otherwise ok
