Each sheet of our Baltic Birch Plywood features exceptional strength and the ability to be finished to meet your project needs. The front, back and inner plies are all quality one-piece sheets, which result in excellent screw holding power. Faces may contain some matched plugs, and one face is light and even in color for an attractive finished face. All pieces are 30'' long, and are ripped to 12'' wide for bookcases, shelving and more narrow cabinets. Available in thicknesses of: 1/8'', 1/4'', 1/2'' and 3/4''. All dimensions are nominal and may be slightly undersized.


Grade BB/BB: Both faces are relatively "void free" but may contain small patches and a slight knot pattern or mineral streaks. One face is light and even in color. Open knots and defects in a BB face veneer have been removed and replaced with small uniform ''football'' patches before being glued. The end result is a strong plywood that is attractive enough to be used on a variety of projects.

Great plywood
I used this plywood 2 build jigs and a router table and every piece has been straight and exactly 30 inches long but it was just a little under 12 inches in width. But for the price it is the cheapest Baltic birch plywood I have found on the internet.

Shoptime200 Baltic Birch plywood
I really enjoy working with the Baltic Birch plywood panels I’ve been purchasing at Rockler. There are very few tiny voids. I have seen plywood products made from plywood that appears to be firmer with more but thinner layers. I however would give the Rockler Baltic Birch panels a solid 4.5 - 5. I especially like it when they have the 30 x 60 panels on sail in 3/4 or 1/2 inch. I’m waiting for them to both go on sale again. I recently finished an out feed cabinet and will be making some replacement wall cabinets for my shop. Love Rockler, love Baltic Birch panels. Also little to no waste.

Is this plywood suitable for laser cutting? In other words does the glue used have chlorine or any other nasty chemicals that when burned produce toxic fumes?

Is the actual thickness as stated or is it less?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These products are manufactured in Europe so they are actually in metric. Each play is 1.5mm thick and the top and bottom veneer being 0.75mm thick. So if you buy a 5 ply or 9 ply sheet it will be:

5 PLY
2 x 0.75mm (top & bottom veneer) + 3 x 1.5 = 6mm thick ....... this will be sold to Americans as 1/4" thick since 6mm = 0.236in

9 PLY
2 x 0.75mm (top & bottom veneer) + 7 x 1.5 = 12mm thick ....... this will be sold to Americans as 1/2" thick since 12mm = 0.472in

Hope that clarifies things.
Has the edge got a plywood look,or is it smooth?

I was told by a boat builder that Baltic Birch can be used in place of marine plywood. Do you know if this can be used in a marine application?
Larry H on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Tagging on what rOBERT said, the answer is a general "no." Baltic birch plywood should NOT be used for hull or on topsides - any part that is exposed to water and weather. He is right about the face veneers (and interior veneers) being tropical (often Sapele) but also, the laminates themselves in marine plywood are exceptionally free of voids. BS 1088 and Lloyd's Register are what to look for. I recommend looking in, "WoodenBoat" magazine or contacting Jamestown Distributors, Hamilton Marine for sources/marine plywood. Having said this, Baltic Birch plywood such as they sell at Rockler, is fine for interior work in a boat, like a built-in berth that is well inside and under cover. And, of course, this plywood is fantastic for making jigs.
Can I purchase full sized sheets of plywood (ie. 4 foot by 8 foot)?
Micheal B on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Rockler carries Baltic Birch Plywood in 12" x 30" and 24" x 30" sheets.
Country of origin?

Can I use 1/2 inch x 9 inch birch 9 ply for a longboard skateboard? Minimal flex at 46 in long 160 lbs.
Jim P on Jul 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are many boards dedicated to fabricating long boards. Generally you'd want to use thinner ply and laminate them so you can shape the board more easily.
