There is a product available in 4×8 sheets that is basically Baltic Birch but with a phonellic (sp?) resin on both faces. The stuff we use is called FinForm. It is used for shoring and concrete forming. We use it in Trench Rescue training. Stuff runs about $150 a sheet, USED!

Absolutely flat. 13-ply Baltic Birch. No voids. Heavy as all getout. There is also another brand out there but I don’t recall the name.

You can order it through lumber yards and specialty stores. Even Lowes can special order it. We get ours (used) from United Rentals.
