Birch timber is a slow-growing species found in the snow-capped forests across Russia and most of Northern Europe, particularly in countries bordering the Baltic region. This frigid climate encourages close-grained and consistently high-quality timber. These are the properties which give birch its legendary strength and high-tensile durability.
Birch has always been a good construction timber for a vast range of uses since ancient times. Today, Birch is recognised as the premium plywood choice and is preferred by architects, designers, planners, builders and engineers for multiple design applications including commercial and domestic furniture and joinery.
Birch’s properties are highly appreciated in industries where special strength and durability of a material is required. The standard thickness of each veneer that makes up the core is 1.4mm which produces an engineered panel offering superior stability and product integrity along with a beautiful feature edge if left exposed.

Working with Birch
All our Birch plywood has one face free from patches (we call this the A side) but will have natural features such as pine knots, resin veins, etc. The backs of the sheets will also have the odd butterfly Birch patch (we call this the B side). The grain direction in our Birch always runs the length of the sheet.
Most clients tend to clear finish the plywood to highlight the timber’s natural and varied characteristics. This finish delivers unmatched style and highlights the authentic grain appearance and beautiful multi-layered edge.
