comparitive Baltic Birch pricing

Postby Yankee Tim » Fri Oct 12, 2012 6:55 am

Still waiting for a return call from the lumber yard. Seems the two whoresalers near Albany, NY no longer do cash&carry sales. :(

For a comparative purpose, what have you all paid for a sheet? I'm getting prices for both 4x8 and 5x5 sheets. Seems like the 5x5 will have much less waste (only building one 2x12 HT style). Not that I can do.much about the price I get other than shop around, as I need the material. Have all the parts ordered and tow D120fs ready to go. Its just that I'm Scottish and we are a "tight" people. And if I'm going to get fuct hard on the price, I'm going to demand they kiss me first.

Thanks in advance.

I don't recall specifically, but I think somewhere in the neighborhood of $40-50 for 3/4" sheet.

That sounds about right for the 5x5...maybe a little high, but not ridiculous. I think I've paid in the 70-75 range, but that is through a wood shop that buys wholesale. 4x8 BB is very uncommon, which would explain the pricing. To be honest, I've never even seen a 4x8 sheet of BB...didn't think eastern European mills ever used that modular sizing.

So last night was the first night of hockey for this year. I'm doing my stretches with my nose down on my Easton stick and what do I see- "Baltic birch veneer."

Have fun! Last night was brutal for me. 62 old years, off for 2 years with a knee injury and surgery. Buffing brutal.... gasp :-)
