  • 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'

              Celtic knot-shamrock cross
              by Ennobee
              My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

              Hi Jim.
              glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

              Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

              Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
              by jim_mex
              I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
