Where to buy Baltic Birch plywood in Charleston SC

Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a couple sheets of 15 ply veneer core, 3/4" (18 mm), Baltic Birch plywood in the highest grade possible, which seems to be B/BB. 

I did not just suddenly become a plywood snob. I have a project that requires me to prominently display the actual plywood edges as a design feature, and I need the high contrast, thin, all birch, long-grain-then-end-grain plys of baltic birch. However, I've called every "major" lumber yard in the Charleston SC area, and no one carries it. I called:

  • Southern Lumber Co.
  • Berlin G. Meyers
  • Wurth Group

No one carries it around here. I found some online that would work through woodworkerssource.com, but the shipping charges cost literally slightly more than the wood itself. I also don't want to make any long trips to Atlanta or Charlotte if I can help it, as the gas would again make this project's costs tip into the "nevermind" zone. Anybody got any tips?

Ive never been there before and I dont know if Columbia SC is too far for you but a search showed a company called Woodford plywood in Columbia.  Goodluck on your hunt.

Trying calling this company - one of the largest importers of Russian Plywood.  Bring product into a number of ports.

Ask who their customers are in South Carolina that stock or can order for you.

Hood Distribution  in Greenville SC. Set up an account they deliver to me in Charleston 1 a week.

Are delivery charges not crazy? Baltic Birch is already probably a pretty expensive product. In my experience, shipping of things like this end up costing as much if not more than the product.

Also... I only need like 1-2 sheets right now. Maybe more later on. If you are in Charleston, would you be open to going in on an order?
