Warped boards and splintered edges
The good: - Boards are indeed 18 mm thick, with 1 good face - Have not encountered any voids The bad: - Main one: boards are twisted, out of 6x 20"x30" boards, only 1 was actually flat - The non-factory edges are not straight, and have noticeable splintering I'm relatively new to woodworking and have mostly stuck with bigger construction grade projects thus far. I was hoping to use these sheets as shelving in my linen closet, but was disappointed that only 1 was flat enough to be used as is. I have shimmed the rest with some scrap wood at the back so they don't wobble so the money wasn't completely wasted; however, for the price and hype around Baltic birch being incredibly flat and stable I was expecting more. As other commenters have noted, I also feel that this plywood is not flat enough to make jigs out of. Note: I am in WA while the plywood came from AZ, so maybe the warp is from the quick change in climates
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice

Oh no! So sorry about the trouble. We'll take care of it, though. Go to your order list annd locate the "Report a Problem" on your order to get a replacement started.

3/4 x 2'x4' Baltic birch
All of the sheets had defects on both sides. Disappointed. I use alot of this all the time for projects. I like my stuff to look good. I will have to order from another supplier unless they contact me and do better. If I can get what I expect, I will continue to order here....we'll see what happens. Other than that the wood arrived in good shape.
