What is Baltic-birch plywood and why should I care?

2 min read

I spent a large portion of my woodworking history not entirely familiar with Baltic-birch plywood, and not entirely aware of why I needed to have it in my workshop. This video is intended to quickly cover some of the most important characteristics of Baltic-birch plywood, compared with the stuff that you normally find in the big home-improvement stores.

One of my primary uses of Baltic-birch plywood is building things with a mechanical use, like workshop jigs, since it’s inclined to stay flat and not wear out easily, especially if any moving parts are waxed. I have also used it to make wooden gears, a baby gate, cabinet parts, knobs, wheels, etc.

If you’re looking for Baltic-birch plywood, your best bet is to search locally and possibly be willing to drive a little. Shipping will usually hurt. The closest supplier to me for full sheets is an hour drive one-way. I often order the 12×12-inch pieces from Woodcraft when they occasionally go on sale for a couple dollars, and use them for small projects.

You can find pictures of things that I build on Instagram:
