Default Re: Baird T5 retoration project.

Regarding plywood: what you need is Birch Ply. It's available in thicknesses from 3mm upwards, and a good timber merchant should be able to order it for you. There are different grades according to whether you need a totally un-blemished surface or not; obviously when veneering over it, a few filled knot holes won't matter.

Unlike the cheap Asian ply, the individual plies are all the same thickness, so it's much stronger. Naturally, it's quite a bit more expensive!
