What is it

Birch ply is made from laminations of birch veneer. It is light but strong, among the strongest and most dimensionally-stable plywoods, although it is unsuitable for exterior use.
Birch wood is fine-grained and pale in colour, with a smooth surface. Ripple figuring may occur in birch plywood, increasing the value of the timber.

Typical uses

Furniture, decoration, jewelry.
Birch ply is also used to make longboards (skateboards), giving it a strong yet flexy ride.
