Not too long ago I bought a sheet of baltic birch plywood for a armoir project for my daughter (pics to be posted at a later time). I was going to use the plywood for the drawer parts because it was being hailed as splinter free when using it in a dovetail jig. NOT
I tried using backer boards in the front and back and still got tearout. If the ends didn’t tear out then the last layer of the ply de-laminated. This made fitting them and glue ups a pain in the ass. I know I could have used masking tape but when you have several drawers to make that woudl be a pain in the ass too.
I really think this baltic birch is not what everybody makes it out to be.
Anybody else have similar experiences with this stuff?
