3mm Russian Birch BB/BB grade
3mm Russian Birch BB/BB grade 60" x 60". This thickness is close to 1/8" and is made up of 3 plies. Russian Birch plywood is uniquely manufactured with multiple plies of Birch veneer, used uniformly, throughout the panel. Each layer of birch veneer is peeled at 1.3mm or 1.5mm thickness, giving the panel a multi-ply edge that is both aesthetically attractive and offers unmatched strength and stability.
The face and back surface typically have a small number color-matched patches. The thick face veneer also provides a smoother surface for CNC routers or engraving machines to glide on the wood. This thickness is used in model airplace construction, skateboards and arts and crafts.
