Get the best Baltic birch in the size you want! We stock this high-grade plywood in 5'x5' sheets, but in order to be shipped they must be cut down to a size that's acceptable to shippers. So we offer multiple convenient sizes to choose from. The 60" length gives you the largest sheet possible that can be shipped, while the 30" length makes for a size that's easier for you to handle - but you decide which one is better for you!
Baltic Birch is the plywood of choice for a number of uses because it's inexpensive, stable, void free, holds screws exceptionally well, and it's made with waterproof glue. Use Baltic Birch for your box bottoms, drawer sides, scroll saw art, shop jig-making and other craft work.
BB/BB Grade plywood has a void-free core for the ultimate performance in strength, however the faces are not cabinet-grade. Up to 6 veneer patches may be present on the face. The length or width may be undersized by 1/2.
