I'm getting corn-fused here. Both big box orange and blue stores sell birch
plywood. The core is, well I don't know what it is, but its certainly not
birch or even
another hardwood for that matter. Since the prices for the birch-oak-maple
plywoods at the borgs are pretty close together, and the original post said
maple ply cost twice as much as the birch ply, are we talking about the
plywood here? I mean, are they selling solid birch plywood and solid maple
Just a word from the originator of this thread:
I was talking about solid birch 1X6 stock compared to solid maple 1X6 stock.
I agree with everything you say about big box plywood versus baltic birch
plywood but that was not what I was asking about. Neverless it's all very
informative and I appreciate all your responses.
You must be talking about s4s all right...
I checked Century Mill on 4/4 and 6/4 Maple vs birch - very close in
So assuming an 8 ft board
6* 5.05 = 30.30
6* 6.89 = 41.34
Birch 6/4 5.05 a bd ft
Hard Maple 6.89 a bd ft.
So with a bandsaw to use -- know what I would do -- buy maple or 8 ft of
birch -- depends on how nice the wood is I guess. :-)
I like them both. :-)
Thanks for clearing that up, and sorry for my mistaken assumption -- but I
still think you're better off with Baltic birch ply than with solid wood of
either species. :-)
