High Grade 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.

Grading Information:

BB/BB Grade: BB Grade boards are the smoother form of 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.

The different grades of birch plywood are B/BB, BB/BB, BB/CP, CP/CP and C/C. All of these grades are different and can be used for various parts of a project.

Birch plywood uses veneers that are squashed together at right angles. This is called cross-bonding and it makes it stronger when more layers are added. Because of the interlocked pattern of the grain, you should pre-drill the sheet to make cutting the panel easier. We also provide a cutting service.
