Birch Plywood (12mm)| WBP Birch Plywood Sheets
High Grade 12mm Birch Plywood panels are known to have incredible strength and durability, being constructed from high quality solid and face birch veneers. On top of this, the sanding process provides a smooth finish on both sides of the board. With these qualities in mind, Birch Plywood performs best in applications demanding high strength and rigidity, making it a perfect choice for furnishing and joinery work. Birch Plywood is also known for its clean, bright appearance, making it not only a good practical choice, but an aesthetic one too.
BB/BB Grade: BB Grade boards are the smoother form of Birch Plywood, they are graded to allow fewer patches, knots and imperfections, this makes them appropriate for furniture work on both sides of the board. These board are suitable for all general work, including CNC Machining.
BB/CP Grade: BB/CP Grade boards differ from the BB Grade in the fact that they allow for more patches, knots and imperfections, due to the fact that one side of the board is the smoother BB Grade, while the other is CP Grade. This means that this type of board is more suitable for furniture in a project where one side of the board is of importance, prioritising the BB Grade side for the outward facing side of a project. Suitable also for most general work including CNC Machining.
