Russian Birch, also known as Baltic Birch, is a multi-ply plywood known for its strength and edge quality. It's used for drawer sides, toys, children's furniture, seat bottoms & backs, jigs and fixture boards. In fact, it can be used anywhere for superior strength or exposed edge applications. Once you've used it, you'll wonder where it's been all your life!
