  • BBplywood from Michaels

    HI all
    While shopping with my wife the other day we were at Michaels and I noticed they had Revell 1/8 in bb plywood and it looked pretty good. Anybody ever bought it there?

      I was doing a job for a friend who supplied the bb 1/8 from Michaels and I had lots of chip outs front and back. It was not that delicate and so I changed and used the real BB and not one chip out.

      It may have just been the batch but it is just not worth the effort.

      I get my 1/8 in 5' x 5' sheets for $15.95 CDN plus tax. from local lumber store (not big box)

        Hi all,
        That is not Baltic Birch that Michael's carries in our local store. It is aircraft grade plywood that many modelers, airplanes and boats, use. The glue is very hard and causes premature wear on the blade and in many cases, with thin stock (1/8"), the back side of your project will not look very good. BE WELL

          I use the 1/8 from there or ac Moore for my backs of the puzzle boxes. Works do what I need it for. Huge diffence from big box and local lumber in quality.

            I really don't have any problem with it, you have to use a thin blade like 2/0, and tape all the way around, actually for the money it isn't bad. edward

              I use it all the time, did have some issues with once in a while getting chip out or splintering, but do have to look over the sheets some will be warped or bowed have to eye down the board to see or place it on the floor. I have gone in to get some and walked out empty handed due to every board being warped or bowed, its hit and miss.

                I also buy my BB at a local supplier for ~ $15 a sheet 5' x 5' that equates to $.61 a sq ft.

                  Like Rolf I buy 5x5 sheets from a local supplier but I pay a bit more per sheet, $20. My most poplar selling ornament is a Sue Mey design angel. I get 120 ornaments out of a sheet and stack cut them 5 or 6 at a time. I am selling them for $5 each (120 x 5=$600).

                    Must be a good seller if you have to cut 120 of them!!

                      I sell 75 to 80 each year. They have letters in them so there are really 26 versions.

                        They are really nice. I don't do things with letters or names. Never fails, when I do they always what I don't have!!!

                          The problem with any of the inserts you never know when they were made and how old the battery is. I bought a bunch of inserts...

                          Actually, it was about the animals stacked on top of one another. For some reason I can't find that issue. And my secret was about turning my alligator into a horse. Thanks for the info on Iggy and Scott. I will definitely check it out.
