  • Baltic Birch KW

    Hi All

    I am wondering if anybody knows of a decently priced source for Baltic birch plywood (5×5 sheets) in KW region or surroundings.

    Right now I drive to BCW Lumber in Brantford which are by far cheaper than anything I have found around here. But I hate driving that far just to get a good price.

    I know A&M wood in Cambridge has some but last time I called, they were way over priced.

    Any suggestions are welcome. I'm a new woodworker and trying to make my money last a lil longer in the shop lol.

          A second vote from Craftsman. They carry an excellant selection of hardwoods.

            Thanks for the suggestions, I was planning on calling Commonwealth tomorrow. Their website doesn't say much.

            I will also check out Craftsman. I know Swanson's home hardware also sells 5x5 birch, I just can't remember the grade and price, maybe I'll call them as well.

            I'll post my findings here for all.

            Thank You

                    I get my BB from Oliver lumber in Campbellville (401 and Guelph Line). I find them cheaper than any of the local places that I contacted.
