It is primarily produced in Finland and Russia. Appearance: Valued for its appealing light color, this type of plywood features a uniform grain, smooth texture and outstanding durability. Physical Properties: This type of plywood varies in thickness and contains an odd number of plies. The two outer plies, which comprise the front and back, show vertical wood grain that runs lengthwise throughout the sheets.
Inner plies have alternating horizontal or vertical grain, which provides increased strength and resistance to warping or moisture damage.
Working Properties: While most plywood tends to be painted, Baltic birch is attractive enough to stand alone with light sanding, varnishing or staining.
