Baltic Birch - 4' x 8'

Our top selling plywood!

Choose from a variety of thicknesses of our Baltic Birch (Russian Birch) plywood.

Our Baltic Birch plywood is manufactured with a single piece face to ensure light and uniform colour. A few sound tight knots and pin holes are permitted. Open knots and defects are replaced with small oval or round veneer patches before gluing.

Need help getting this home? Ask our staff to rip or cross cut the sheet to make it more manageable for you. Please include the dimensions in the notes section of the invoice. If you require additional milling, please email us in advance for a quote.

These are for pickup only at our retail location in Ottawa, or for local delivery in the Ottawa/Gatineau region.

Did you know that all 1/8" and 1/4" Baltic Birch has the possibility of cupping/warping? This can happen because of the nature of it being thin and wide. If and when that happens, this popular product for laser cutters can be accommodated by using simple techniques such as taping it down to a flat surface, or creating a jig that compresses it down flat. We always do our best to hand pick the highest quality pieces, but it’s important to be aware of this possibility when planning materials for your project.

If you require perfectly flat material for your project, we would recommend trying our Craft MDF Plywood instead.


For many of our customers working on CNC or Lasers - it should be noted there is an allowable thickness tolerance to consider;

  • 1/8" (3mm) - +0.3mm/-0.4mm
  • 1/4" (6mm) - +0.4mm/-0.5mm

Refunds for this product are subject to a 15% restocking fee as these are cut to order. As well, the customer is responsible for any applicable shipping charges. 

We have now developed 3 "house grades" so our customers can better understand what they are purchasing;

  • Laser/CNC Grade (B/BB) : You can expect at least 1 face with no patches - often both!
  • Patch 2 Sides : Patches will appear on both faces of sheet. Best value but reserved for painting or small parts
  • Standard (BB/BB) : A mix of both our Laser/CNC Grade and Patch 2 Sides grade. Expect about 80%-90% Laser/CNC Grade. Historically this is what we have sold and the grade of anything unmarked.

See our specification page;

Dimensions are +/- 1/4" of size listed.

Baltic birch 5x5 24mm - Average to below average quality

Reviewing what is called Baltic Birch 5x5 24mm. I've never seen factory edges so off, concave by 3 or 4mm. Totally out of square, like a parallelogram. Looking at the edges, there's a noticeable top and bottom half. One half is darker than the other one and looks like cheaper wood. Router bits are gumming up more than I used to see. Very average quality for the price.
