Plywood | Birch, Poplar and Melamine faced boards

Plywood comes in many forms. The furniture industries favour Birch ply but also available is a more lightweight Poplar ply. Many thicknesses are available including 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 18mm, 22mm and 25mm. The beauty in Plywood is both in its strength and its end grain. The ply layers add interest to a project whilst giving the board great strength which is unrivalled by any other board. CutList offer a cut to size service on many different boards, if you don’t see something on our list please get in touch as we can source special boards on request.


Birch plywood is a very popular choice among furniture makers. This is because it is very strong and has a pleasing end grain which many makers leave showing as a point of interest. The face of the board is very clean and the core does not have any holes or voids unlike cheaper construction ply.


Poplar plywood is taking the UK market by storm! Poplar is a great choice for plywood, is really light, strong and sustainable. Board manufacturers have grabbed hold of the interest so now we are able to supply pre-lacquered boards with Oak and Walnut veneer, fire proof, external grade and many more options.  

Melamine faced 

For those who would like a white melamine faced chipboard but require a little more strength or quality in their project, Melamine faced birch ply is the ultimate choice. Clean, white melamine is bonded to a Birch Ply core.

Pre Veneered 

Our range of Veneer plywood is growing in popularity. Birch ply veneer is a heavy and strong option but we have now introduced a POPLAR ply veneer which is pre-lacquered taking away another task later in the construction process. Poplar ply is incredibly light weight and sustainable. Oak and Walnut finishes are available in both Poplar ply and Birch ply cores.
