  • 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.

    Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

    Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

    It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

    Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
