The Best Baltic Birch

  • 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
Review by  1Lencil from Killeen, Texas
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

Great quality
Review by  Jack B. from Sylvan Springs, AL
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.
