    Where can i find 1/8" hardwood plywood?

    I've been working with 1/8" plywood lately and wondered if there is a supplier of 1/8" that's not Baltic Birch of Finnisih. Any suggestions?

    Cathy,

    Try the Wurth Group in Charlotte. They will very likely have what you want. I know that Charlotte isn't very close to you, but it's the only place that I go when I want good plywood.

    Re: Where can i find 1/8" hardwood plywood?

    Good luck. From what I have found 1/8" hardwood plywood does not exist. I used to get it from Sloans but they no longer carry it. I checked with the Wurth Group in Raleigh and all they sell in 1/8" is luan. If you find a source PLEASE share it.

    I'm curious. Why are you using 1/8" ply for your projects but don't want BB (Finnish is the same as BB).

    Isn't that plywood with hardwood face veneers? The core layers are probably not hardwood.

    Using Finnish would be fine. I'm wanting to add variety to my pieces and have had little success with staining either.

    Ok. This is Finnish, 5/32" thick instead of 1/8" (4/32"). I guess it's not a hardwood per se.

    Jeff, there is a difference between Baltic and Finnish. The Finnish uses a marine grade "water proof" glue and the Baltic doesn't. The Finnish is or was used in the aviation community from what I've read in the past. Last time I looked the Finnish is a few bucks more than the Baltic version in retail stores.

    Baltic Birch plywood has many qualities that scrollers like (void free, multi ply, minimum warping, etc) but it does not stain well. Yes hardwood plywood is available in thicker plywood (1/4" and greater ) but the thicker plywood is not well suited for all projects. I would love to be able to get maple, cherry, and oak.

    Re: Where can i find 1/8" hardwood plywood?

    I used some Cherry hardwood ply in 1/8" that I got from The Hardwood Store. It was the kind with an MDF core. Had to buy a whole sheet though and just had some scraps to use for scrolling. The main pieces were used in a wine cabinet for drawer bottoms and cabinet backs.

    You probably don't want a whole 4x8' sheet I suspect.

    Interesting. I looked this morning and the Hardwood Store doesn't list any 1/8" plywood in their entire selection. Maybe they discontinued it.
