Also called multi-layer plywood, Russian birch or baltic birch plywood includes more sheets (or layers), that is also thinner than traditional plywood. The multi-layer plywood is made entirely of birch which is a hardwood. These characteristics give it strong rigidity and excellent stability.
It is the material most appropriate to make furniture, shelves, jigs, and all kinds of items requiring intensive use.
With the BB/BB grade, you get 2 sides that are the same. Only a few knots and pin parts are allowed. The open knots and defects were replaced by small oval or round plating pieces, similar to the background color.
Baltic birch plywood is therefore of superior quality and is much more rigid than traditional plywood which is usually composed of softwood leaves (such as spruce, poplar, pine, or fir).
The baltic birch comes from northern Europe or the Baltic countries.
Baltic Birch is manufactured to Metric thickness:
- 1/8" = 3mm - 3 ply
- 1/4" = 6mm - 5 ply
- 3/8"= 9mm -7 ply
- 1/2" = 12mm - 9 ply
- 5/8" = 15mm - 11 ply
- 3/4" = 18mm - 13 ply
