Birch Plywood Details

Birchwood is pale hardwood with a cream colour. Our birch plywood takes real, grade BB birch wood veneers, which are glued in a cross-grain construction of layers to create a tough piece of birch plywood that has the aesthetic of birch, with the traditional properties of plywood.

Birchwood is associated with being a fundamental material in the construction of furniture like tables and chairs, however, birch plywood proves to be a brilliant material as an adaptable sheet with uses in a multitude of applications such as signages or in construction.

As a hardwood, birch is ideal for staining and lacquering especially when used in furniture manufacturing and construction.

All of our plywood can be cut, allowing for various designs and finishes. The thinner sheets of birch plywood are easy to work with and can be cut, routed and assembled easily as they're light and easy to manoeuvre.

Alternatively, our larger birch ply sheets, such as our 18mm plywood provide fantastic load-bearing properties giving stability and strength to any heavily weighted project. We provide all plywood sheets in a wide variety of thicknesses that can be cut to any shape or size to suit your needs. Check out our plywood shelf boards available in 12mm and 18mm thicknesses. 

If you are unsure about what specific thickness you will need, get in contact and we can be sure to assist you.

Advantages

Versatile

Our birch plywood takes real birch wood veneers that are glued in layers to create a tough piece of birch plywood that has the aesthetic of birch, with the traditional properties of plywood.

Malleable

Our high-quality plywood sheets are made of real birch veneer, so they take well to most adhesives and paints. This makes it an ideal solution for those looking to utilise the strong, structural stability of real birch whilst being a cheaper inexpensive alternative.

Inexpensive

Compared to a solid birch sheet of the same size, our birch plywood sheets provide an inexpensive solution for those looking to achieve the same desired aesthetic and natural applications.

Customisable

Our birch plywood sheet materials take well to being CNC machined and cut, meaning that we can customise your sheet to fit any spaces that you require.

Uses & Applications

Here are some of the most common uses for birch plywood:

  • Furniture - Birch plywood is commonly used to make furniture such as cabinets, drawers, desks, tables, and shelving. Its attractive blonde wood grain gives furniture visual appeal.
  • Cabinetry - Kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, built-ins, and display cases often utilize birch plywood for the carcase construction. Its stability prevents cabinet warping.
  • Flooring - Birch plywood can be used as a stable subfloor material or underlayment before the finished flooring is installed.
  • Wall Panelling - Thin birch plywood makes an attractive, durable wall panelling for interiors when stained or painted.
  • Crafts - Many craft wood projects like boxes, keepsake displays, and decorative items rely on birch plywood as an affordable material choice.
  • Crating - Birch's strength makes it useful for building durable shipping and storage crates.
  • Signs - Birch plywood creates a smooth surface for painted business signs and displays.
  • Shelving - From utility shelves to bookcases, birch plywood is versatile enough for basic to decorative shelving units.
  • Door Skins - Birch makes a great door skin substrate when durability, stainability, and affordability are priorities.

The consistent quality and blonde hardwood look make birch plywood a jack-of-all-trades material suitable for both structural and aesthetic woodwork. It's easy to see why birch ply is a workshop staple.

Frequently Asked Questions

What thickness birch plywood should I use?

For lightweight crafts and shelving, go with 4mm or 6mm birch ply. Use 9mm or 12mm for furniture, cabinets, and sturdier projects. 18mm+ birch plywood can be used structurally, such as for flooring.

Is it okay to use birch plywood outdoors?

Birch plywood is intended for indoor use only unless properly treated with exterior sealers. For outdoor projects, marine-grade plywood is a better choice.

How do I get a smooth finish on birch plywood?

Birch plywood's smooth sanded face allows for an easy quality finish. Stain, paint, lacquer, or varnish birch plywood for protection and aesthetics. Apply a sealer first for best results.

What's the best way to cut birch plywood?

Use a sharp fine-tooth blade and cut slowly to prevent tear-out on birch plywood edges. You can also score the cut line with a utility knife before cutting for cleaner edges.

Can birch plywood be glued effectively?

Yes, birch plywood can be edge glued or face glued successfully with PVA wood glue. Ensure proper spread, clamping pressure, and cure time for durable glue bonds.

How should I store birch plywood sheets?

Keep birch plywood lying flat, indoors, and away from moisture sources. Avoid leaning sheets against a wall long-term. Covering sheets helps limit dust and debris accumulation.
