I was wondering what people have been paying for 3/4" 4'x8' Baltic Birch veneer plywood sheets, and where they have been purchasing it.
What BORG are you finding Baltic Birch ply at in the Triangle area....I want to know? I've never seen it. I've seen Birch veneer ply but not the high quality, voidless, many ply "Baltic" varieties.Monty:
A 4'x8' sheet (32 square feet) is $42.95 at HD and Lowes. So your price for 25 square feet looks pretty good assuming the 5x5 sheets lend themselves to the project at hand.
Last week I payed about $34.00 for a 30" x 50" piece of 3/4" BP from Wood craft in Raleigh. .........I didn't really need a whole sheet!I was wondering what people have been paying for 3/4" 4'x8' Baltic Birch veneer plywood sheets, and where they have been purchasing it.
Rich, I've bought plywood from the RoundUp Store (on the US 74 bypass across from Big Lots) as well, but most of it is B-2 grade, which is fine for shop cabinets as you suggest. And be careful, because their surface plies are pretty thin. I have used their birch in 3/4" for paint-grade customer projects and was pleased with the quality. Indeed, the prices are excellent and the selection is incredible.'RoundUp' in Shelby has birch 5/8" (4' x 8') for $32.00 and 3/4" (4' x 8') for $34.00. NICE stuff....seven significant plys, IIRC...and nice, flat, minimal voids in it. You'll be pleased, I am...bought three sheets of 5/8" for some shop cabs and I'll be back for more. They've got just about every kind of plywood you can imagine and it's all reasonably priced, beautiful stuff. In fact you could make the argument that you could build with either side of this stuff. ;-)
Rich,Interesting, I thought their surface ply was reasonably thick. I must say the only other comparison I can make is to the China ply that HD was/is selling and that was worse - therefore their product is nice to me! :-D
