B birch veneer

Baltic Birch gets its name from the Baltic Sea region in Eastern Europe, where these Birch trees thrive. Baltic Birch Plywood is manufactured entirely of many thin layers of Birch veneer, or plies, always in an odd number. Each ply is glued and crushed at a right angle to the one below it, giving the final plywood its superior strength and stability. The thickness, glue type, and grade of plywood all influence its usefulness for specific uses.

B garde birch veneer

Since Russia’s sanctions, birch plywood has become extremely scarce. B grade birch plywood, as well as any decorative grade birch, is particularly scarce. Our Fine-Stripe veneered birch plywood offers an alternative. The use of B grade strips (rather than one-piece faces) increases the production of B grade material.

The core panels are made of regular European birch plywood and veneered on both sides with AB grade European Birch.

Because of the veneered faces (0.5mm on each side), the panels will be thicker. Faces are sanded after production to ensure a smooth surface for finishing. These panels are appropriate for cut to size, CNC work, machining, and drilling since the joints are tight and smooth. The strips range in width from 100mm to 180mm. The veneer strips on a single face will vary in width. The veneers are rotary cut and randomly matched (also known as mis-matched).

A light colour that is uniform and free of plugs or open splits. Only a few pin knots and minor colour variations are allowed.
