I was at a local Surplus & Salvage Store yesterday and was checking out their building materials. Found a couple of interesting items – cherry plywood with MDF core (had heard of this but never seen it anywhere – wow, that must be heavy to work with!!!) and a 4×8 sheet marked “birch” for $74.99. As I looked at this “birch” plywood, I counted the plies and it had either 13 or 15, hard to tell because the edges were a little dirty. I certainly don’t have that much experience buying sheet goods but it seems to me that this must be Baltic Birch – I don’t know of any other plywood with that number of plies.
They also had 5/8” T-111 with either 4” or 8” OC grooves for $13.99 and some real nice looking AC plywood for $19.99, I think. Sure wish I had a pickup truck but maybe not – still wouldn’t have any place at home to store it.
What do you think about the birch plywood – Baltic Birch?
