High quality 600mm x 400mm Birch Plywood sheets. Suitable for a wide range of applications, including use on a laser cutter.
This is B/BB grade Birch Plywood with B grade on the topside and BB grade on the underside. Please note: As wood is a natural product, there is often a crook or bow to the sheet. The natural twist might be in excess of 25mm (see below - Tolerances and Caution).
The B grade topside shows the natural look of the wood. There will be changes in colour that show the grain pattern. Sound, smooth knots are allowed and these will typically be under 15mm to 35mm in diameter. The surface should normally be free from open knots and plugs. This material should be suitable for paint / stain or a lacquered finish.
BB grade is similar to B grade but allows for larger knots and repairs to the face. Sound, smooth knots are allowed and these will typically be under 50mm in diameter. Open knots can be repaired with wooden plugs. The material should be suitable for applications where the visual look is not critical.
Our Birch Plywood uses an EN314-2 Class 1 glue which is suitable for interior (dry) conditions. Interior glue is generally considered the preferred option for materials that are to be laser cut. This is because the exterior glues can cause a more obvious 'burnt' look on and around the area that is cut.
Knots or resin within the material can cause scorch marks when used on a laser cutter. These can usually be removed with fine grade wet and dry sandpaper.
Although some sheets may have 2 faultless faces, some may have imperfections on both sides and therefore this product is most suitable for applications where a solid surface is needed but the visual aspects are not critical.
This material is FSC certified.

The manufacturing tolerance for the thickness of plywood sheets are the stated thickness +0.3mm/-0.4mm. This means a 3mm plywood sheet could be between 2.6mm and 3.3mm in thickness.
- As wood is a natural product there is often a bow or crook to plywood, and in some cases a twist. We have measured in excess of 25mm rise between the flat centre of the plywood and the corner. These twists are completely normal and add to the natural character of the plywood. If you are using this product on a laser cutter; these sheets should be strapped/taped to the laser bed before cutting.
- On all Plywood and Perspex Sheet Orders (excluding A4 size) there is a flat delivery charge of £6.50 per order.
I require bigger lazer grade 900mm x 900mm. Is this possible I was thinking MDF
Posted byon Wednesday, 13 July 2016
Hi Haitham, Unfortunately all of our materials come pre-cut into us from our supplier so we can’t cut to size. Also we have recently introduced a larger range of sheet sizes in the MDF, these will provide the most effective yield from the large sheet to ensure the cost is kept down. As such we are unable to supply the sheet size you have requested. All our MDF can be found here, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/materials/laser-mdf.html
Do you do larger sheets of this plywood? Thanks
Posted byon Wednesday, 30 March 2016
We don’t currently stock a larger sheet size in the birch, however we are always looking to expand our range of materials including sheet sizes. If you email firstname.lastname@example.org with the sheet size you require and the Qty we will look to see if we can obtain this.
Hi, Im interested in purchasing some sheets of 3mm or 3.5mm birch ply. Do you do anything higher quality than B grade? I will be using the sheets for the fronts of cajon drums and would need sheets that were of good aesthetic. Kind regards, James

We do a BR grade in the birch see:
The BR is better than a B grade material it offers a smoother finish and smaller knots. If you need a guide on the grading please see:
Just wondering what the average weight of a single 3mm sheet is?
Posted byon Tuesday, 17 November 2015
The average weight for the product is around 450g per sheet, although this may change slightly from batch to batch.
Hi there, Just wanted to find out if you ship to South Africa? Do you have the 3mm birch ply for laser in bigger sheets? I have developed a product range in the 3mm and my supplier here in SA just let me know that they might not stock the 3mm anymore so I am desperate to find a reliable supplier. Thanks so much!
