  • Source for 5-Ply poplar plywood?

    Hello All,
    I have been asked to make a few puzzles as gifts and was wondering if anyone could recommend a source for 5-ply poplar plywood?
    I had cut a few puzzles some time ago and don't remember where i purchased the plywood from.

    Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.

    Thank you
    loving my DW788

      I checked out this website and it looks like this product could make a pretty decent backer board.

        Are you using it as a backer or to cut the puzzle from? I’ve found any plywood I got from Lowe’s had a lot of voids. I use poplar for all my puzzles. Well I was going to post a few pictures but the photo library is empty again. Only happens on this site.

          I have never had much success with the stuff from Lowes. I did a quick internet search in your area. Nothing really popped up on your side of the river but I found this place in Poughkeepsie First Cut Custom Woodworks and Affordable Granite and Cabinetry in Fishkill.

          BTW I grew up and lived 40 years in Dutchess County.

            Any reason why you wouldn't want to use Baltic Birch ply? I think ApplePly would be another good option for puzzles, but it's more expensive, I believe.

              Check with the cabinet shops in your area. They know the sources of good cabinet ply.

                      I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in 16”x24” pieces which is a convenient size for me.

                        Like millwab, I get mine from Cherry Tree/Wildwood which has both 1/8" and 1/4" poplar ply. I like the 1/4 for puzzles. You can contact them at www.CherryTreeToys.com or 1-8oo-848-4363

                          Betty, I was talking about the bottom of the paduk board with what looks like dowel plugs. You say there are screws under those plugs? Are the screws going into a cross piece that holds the wood strips together?

                          I have dozens of basket patterns I inherited.... maybe I ought to give one a try sometime. Never made one yet, but yours always look so very nice!

                          He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...
