  • Source of good quality plywood in the UK?

    Hi, I am looking for a source of high grade Baltic birch plywood in the UK. In fact, the artist is my uncle who is based in Brazil. He cannot find a decent material which does not chip or crack on the scroll saw in his city and I promise I would try to find something better for him!

    A friend of mine is coming for a short visit next week and I would like to send the wood with him. it needs to fit in a bag, so I cannot send the 2.5m sheets I seen in the shops!

    Here is the spec of the sheets required for the project (thickness in millimeters needs to be rounded, I think):

    Baltic birch plywood
    3/4" x 1.1/2" x 1.1/2" 19.05mm x 38mm x 38mm
    2 pieces 1/2" x 12" x 12" 12.7mm x 305mm x 305mm
    3/8" x 12" x 12" 9.5mm x 305mm x 305mm
    1/4" x 12" x 12" 6.35mm x 305mm x 305mm
    2 pieces 1/8" x 12" x 12" 3.18mm x 305mm x 305mm

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

    OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
