  • Baltic Birch

    I have notice that in the US some people buy their Baltic Birch from Home Depot.
    I also notice that they are buying it in 4x8 sheets.

    Here in BC I get my BB Ply from Windsor Plywood. It comes in 5x5 sheets,
    I wonder if it is the same wood. I understand that in Europe the full sheets are 10x5.

    Anyone have any info on this?

      Hi Carl

      Standard sheet sizes in the UK are 8x4, although BB ply may well be 10x5; I've never seen it over here, so I wouldn't know.

        Genuine Baltic Birch ply is only available in 5 X 5 sheets. I'm not familiar with the stuff the BORG is passing off as BB, it could be a domestic HVHC Birch or something similar. Appleply is very similar to Baltic Birch and is available in 4 X 8 sheets, perhaps they're carrying this? I try to avoid the BORG whenever possible so I haven't seen it. Funny story though, I needed a small piece of maple so I stopped by the BORG to pick it up (it was on my way home and I just needed a small piece). To make a long story short, when checking out, it took 30 minutes and 5 people because no one understood what Maple was and they couldn't figure out how to look up the price.

          The baltic birch we have at Lowes and Home depot looks like regular plywood
          it looks pretty bad. I buy my Baltic Birch from Woodcraft in Austin.

            The Home Depot where I live is called Brick plywood and I think it is only 3/4" and it is 4'X8'.
            I buy baltic birch in Indianapolis 1/4 and 1/8 and it comes 5'X5'

              This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

              I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

              Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

              How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

              I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

              First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...

              I think that it important for any business to keep track of what their customers are concerned about. If a business ignores such things, they will suffer in the long run. Ignoring comments in your own forum or not replying to emails is not a good strategy. Good companies are always on the lookout...
