Using Birch plywood has been real fun on end grain because I get both end and edge together. They pop!
Board is 17 1/2” by 12 1/2”. (almost golden) Made from birch plywood and hard maple. The plywood is sawed at an angle to get the diamonds. Very difficult cut. Board has nice solid rubber feet and routed handles on ends.
Notice the edges. They fan out and are different on end and edges.
I tested the birch for water resistance. Put a strip under water overnight and the plywood ply’s were fine. No de-lamination.
Still do not know how the edge grain will cut, IE, hold up to a knife. My wife has commandeered this board for our kitchen, so I will know soon.
