1/2" Baltic Birch Plywood 20"X30"

Baltic Birch is the plywood of choice for a number of uses because it's inexpensive, stable, 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.

The length or width may be undersized by 1/8".

Grade & Size
Grade BB/BB, which is the second highest grade available. Both the face and the back veneers are single piece veneers with no splices. Both face and back veneers can have up to 6 small color-matched patches (egg sized footballs or another shape), some light mineral streaks or tight pin knots. Inner cores are solid single piece veneers.

(≈1/2")
Width 20"
Length 30"
Approximated, length or width may vary +/- 1/8"
Actual thickness is 12 mm. Widths and lengths may vary by 1/8".

The Best Baltic Birch

  • Core of solid Birch veneer laminations means better gluing and screw-holding than other plywood
  • Edges can be routed
  • Edges can be left bare or covered with edge banding or solid banding
  • Thick face veneer allows you greater margin for sanding without worry of sanding through
  • Available in 1/8", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" and 3/4" thickness

Fine quality
Baltic Birch is not available anywhere near my home, so ordering the plywood from Woodworkers source was my next best option. No regrets! Obviously I would prefer no delivery costs but it isn't that exorbitant so it was worth it to me. The Birch Plywood received was in excellent shape and is perfect for my upcoming projects
Familiarity: I haven't used it yet

Great quality
I recently ordered this size and a few other things and I'm definitely NOT disappointed. Excellent quality wood, nicely packaged. That goes for everything else I ordered too (another size birch plywood and a few dowels) but I'm only leaving a review here since it was the main item in my list.
