Well, yes there are 101 uses for Birch, but this 101 is the basics. Birch is an abundant hardwood that takes stain and screws well. It's durable and attractive and the preferred plywood for kitchen cabinets, benches and tables. Birch is workable and doesn't nick or scratch easily which are two qualities woodworkers like. We use Birch because it is durable, sturdy and timeless and it doesn't weigh a ton making it perfect to flat pack ship to your door. Find some special sales at Birch Lane.
