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.

Delivery depends on the size of your order
