Common plywood we are familiar with are utilized in different applications. Nevertheless, due to its limitation in appearance and certain features, most plywood is “hidden” inside the workpiece. In fact, there is high quality plywood with both beauty and durability properties. Many designers may have seen designs from abroad and wondered what type of wood it is; however, few people know and have had experience with it.
Birchwood Thailand has long been searching for high-quality plywood equipped with durability and beauty until it discovered “Birch plywood,” which responds well to all needs, with its strength and beautiful smooth wooden surface. Birch plywood can be used to create a variety of works such as furniture, speakers, doors, walls, general interior decoration and toys. It can also be used for the exterior, allowing designers to widen their design perspective and break away from conventional materials for as much as the imagination allows.
“Birchwood Thailand:” Distributor of the most premium-grade Birch plywood, “Baltic Birch”
The founders of Birchwood Thailand are civil engineers with experience in construction, interior decoration and furniture manufacturing. They have traveled to many countries to search for quality materials for the development of design work and furniture manufacturing. They found that this Birch plywood has the potential for both exterior and interior designs, furniture, products and architectural work. Therefore, they researched and discovered that the best quality Birch material is from Russia, which is internationally known as “Baltic Birch Plywood.” Quality plywood products from Europe or the US often feature Baltic Birch plywood as well.
Unique properties of “Baltic Birch” plywood for creation of one-of-a-kind pieces
Baltic Birch Plywood is a plywood whose source of materials is from the Baltic or Russia. It is the highest grade of plywood, with beautiful and sleek surface on both sides, distinct layers and exceptional durability of waterproof grade. The texture of Birch plywood features a mountain pattern with smooth burrs, beautiful wood grain, and light color, which could be colored or dyed easily, and the wood grain can still be seen clearly. Designers choose Birch plywood in designing furniture or products that showcase the surface and plywood layers, resulting in highly unique design styles.
Another outstanding feature of Baltic Birch plywood is that its ridge or layers are divided clearly and very dense. Each layer is a 1.4 mm thick birch pulp, with each layer being placed alternatingly until the desired thickness is obtained. European or American designers prefer using this feature in CNC machine operations, which ensures that the least amount of the wood’s porosity produced by cutting or gouging would be seen.
What is a CNC machine?
CNC is abbreviated from Computer Numerical Control, which is a method of controlling the operation of various machines through the use of computer, thus enabling the production of parts to be accurate, fast and precise. The CNC Router is a machine for cutting, drilling, carving and chiseling wood, plastic, and acrylic, etc.
Durable wood texture of waterproof grade which can be featured in exterior use
Baltic Birch plywood is also exceptionally durable because the quality of the wood and adhesive used in manufacturing is of the highest grade. The plywood has a high stability, rarely expands or contracts and has waterproof properties. The plywood can be used for exterior work, such as performance stage, outdoor speakers or small boats.
Non-toxic, can be used even in places which require extreme caution like hospitals
The production process of Baltic Birch plywood utilizes E1 Class adhesive which emits a level of volatiles, making the products safe for children and pets. Many European countries therefore use this type of plywood to manufacture furniture for children, furniture used in kindergarten or even in hospitals.
With above features, birch plywood has become popular among designers in several countries. Carpenters and painters love to use the plywood because it is easy and fast to work with and has good texture quality. This results in a beautiful, high-quality product that saves on material costs, labor, time, and most importantly, it is able to be designed to serve a variety of needs.
