Baltic Birch Plywood (1/8" - 3/4") - B/BB Grade
Baltic Birch Plywood – B/BB grade
Baltic birch plywood for laser cutting, engraving and DIY projects.
Sometimes called European plywood it uses hardwood birch veneers for the faces and the core. The most distinctive feature of Baltic birch is that the edges are attractive, uniform stripes of hardwood veneer, usually alternating light and dark bands. That edge is largely free of voids.
So, you can typically just sand the edge and allow the edge to be seen, as often is used in European furniture, cabinets, and store fixtures.
Specifications and Dimensions
- Available in metric thicknesses: 3mm (about 0.120in), 6mm (about 0.24in), 9mm (about 0.36in) and so forth. Since each 3mm increment is about 1/8 of an inch, these thicknesses are pretty close to 1/8, 1/4, and 3/8 inch.
- Outer veneers are typically 0.75mm thick and the inner veneers are typically 1.5mm thick. So, a 6mm (1/4in) thickness is usually 5 plies, with each incremental 3mm of thickness adding or subtracting 2 inner plies.
- All MakerStock panel dimensions are cut to tolerances of +0in/-0.188in.
- Our Baltic birch is B/BB, which means the better side is grade B and the worse side is BB. The B side is beautiful, with no knots or patches. The BB side is also very nice, but will usually have a few pin knots, only 2-3mm across, and perhaps a “football” patch. Typically you design your object such that the BB face is on the backside or inside of an assembled object.
- Density runs about 680 kg/m3 or 0.025 lb/in3.

- Paint and stain receptive.
