Thomes to showcase Baltic birch plywood at WMS 2022

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario – Thomes Canada Ltd., which lays claim to being the largest distributor of Baltic birch plywood in North America, will exhibit its products and value-added services at the 2022 Woodworking Machinery & Supply Conference & Expo.

Baltic birch is made entirely from birch plies with no softwood or filler plies in the center. The plies tend to be thinner allowing for more plies for a given thickness and enhanced stiffness and stability.

  • Attractive appearance; and
  • Thicker face veneer well suited for laser cutting and engraving.

In addition to various sizes of plywood panels, Thomes carries aircraft birch plywood, film face plywood, edge glued panels, drawer sides, curved parts and curved parts machined on a 3-axis or 5-axis router.
