What is plywood?Plywood is made by gluing multiple thin layers of wood together in a very tight stack, creating a strong, attractive real-wood panel.
Is Handprint hardwood plywood the same as Baltic Birch plywood?In short, no. Baltic Birch is a specialty plywood originally created for cabinet makers. It’s plies are thicker and all made from 100% birch. Birch plywood has thinner plies which are different species- anything from pine to poplar. We find Birch plywood offers the same great look and benefits as Baltic Birch, but can be more cost effective for a maker’s budget.
How many plies are in each thickness of plywood?In general, the more plies, the stronger the panel. So while the precise number of plies varies depending on the tree, typically, ¼” plywood has 3-5 plies, ½” has 5-7, and ¾” has 7-9.
