1/2" Baltic Birch for Drawer Construction
1/2" Baltic Birch worked well for the project, but was very dry (low moisture content). Excessive tare out was experienced when cutting dovetails. Had to resort to saturating the surface of the tail cut with a wet rag to minimize tare out. Completed drawers were finished using boiled linseed oil. Wood sucked in a good amount of the BLO. This is actually a good thing, but it does confirm the wood was very dry.
Familiarity: I've used it in several projects
