Thread: 1 inch Baltic Birch plywood

    1 inch Baltic Birch plywood

    I'm planning a project that would require 1 inch Baltic Birch plywood.
    I found a thread from about 14 years ago and the consensus was to glue two 1/2" pieces together
    https://sawmillcreek.org/showthread....ltic-Birch-ply
    Has anything changed? Is my best bet to glue two pieces together? Wood glue? Contact cement? Anything else?

    I can buy 24mm Baltic birch plywood locally. You might be able to find it near you.

    Laminating two sheets of 12mm can work if you have some way of clamping while glue dries - vacuum veneer press or the like.

    Don't know where you are, Boulter Plywood in Somerville MA stocks it and will ship. I've seen it in other hardwood lumber yards around here, not that uncommon. It will be 25 mm though, not 1". 5x5 sheet is $110, 4x8 is $170 (and weighs 115 lbs).

    Around here, Johnson's Workbench has 5x5 sheets of 25mm starting at $55.88. Less, if you buy 4+ sheets.

    That's a nice price-- about what subflooring is going for at the Borg around here these days. Can't believe the prices on plywood now.

    $55.88 a sheet that's a great price.
    So things have changed since 2006 and 1 inch Baltic Birch should be available locally or on the web

    Is that Baltic Birch or CANUSA Premcore?

    They list it as 17-ply Russian Birch.

    Which is similar, but not the same as Baltic Birch.
