    I am currently building a built-in desk system for a home office. Birch ply natural finish with bloodwood trim, hard maple upper cabinets and lower drawer systems with poplar drawers. I just finished planing all the boards (3 days and both sides of a blade set) and am starting the cabs tomorrow. Pics to follow.....

    I also just finished a replica of the Declaration frame from the movie "National Treasure". It's 35" X 29" and almost 4" thick weighing in at 38 pounds.

      Bretwalda,

      You are absolutely correct! Stay away from both retailers' birch ply.....lots of cavity defects, especially the 11-ply stuff and painfully thin veneer. From now on (and with my current project) I go to a specialty lumber yard. The veneer is a full 1/32.....good stuff.
