High quality 600mm x 400mm Birch Plywood sheets. Suitable for a wide range of applications, including use on a laser cutter.

This is BB grade Birch Plywood on both sides. 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).

This 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. It shows the natural look of the wood and will show natural colour variations.

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.


  • BB grade finish.
  • FSC certified (Forestry Standards Commission).
  • Interior grade glue.


  • 1 x 6mm Birch Laser Plywood, 600mm x 400mm Sheet.


  • Length: 600mm.
  • Width: 400mm.
  • Height: 6mm.

Example imperfections:


The manufacturing tolerance for the thickness of plywood sheets are the stated thickness +0.4mm/-0.5mm. This means a 6mm plywood sheet could be between 5.5mm and 6.4mm 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.
  • Some sheets of this product may have a material origin ink stamp in one corner, this is circular and approx. 30mm in size. As sheets are stored stacked there can be some transfer of the ink from one sheet to another and as a result the ink mark may appear on both sides. If required the mark can be quickly removed with fine sandpaper.


  • On all Perspex, veneers, Styrofoam, polypropylene, plywood and MDF sheet orders (excluding A4 size) there is a flat delivery charge of £6.50 per order in the U.K. (£18.00 for remote locations).

    Hi Mick, Unfortunately the birch laser plywood we stock isn’t Baltic birch. Interior glue is used and not exterior and we can’t guarantee a void less surface on all parts of the material.

    Unfortunately we are unable to provide a cutting service for the plywood, and we would be unable to source the sheets in this size.

    A: Hi, Sorry at the moment the biggest size we have of the birch plywood is 600x400. If you needed a large quantity of it we might be able to do a special order for you. Email for more details. If you are just after a sheet or two though I don't think we will be able to help at the moment.

    A: Hi Alice, The birch plywood is not an FSC certified product. I will look into FSC certified plywood though.

    Hi Steve, Unfortunately we don’t have any information regarding the toxicity of the material in relation to reptiles. Our supplier is always unable to provide any further information regarding this and can only provide the datasheet for the material which can be seen here, this however only refers to humans only.
