    Maybe called something else. It's used in furniture manufacturing and architectural features. Has a really nice surface finish.

    hi. I agree with the other posts. However I use 4mm birch plywood. Mainly because its lamination are stronger , all being the same thickness.

    I have been using 5mm. marine ply for my Thames barge keels.
    I guess it depends on the size of the craft you are building . Mine are forty two inches and I find the five mil works for me.
    Waterproof PVA glue goes well with it but I find CA does not hold well to plywood. Epoxy works too.
    The two tools I find really useful are a dremel scroll saw and my ryobi drum and disc sander combo.
    They save hours of hand work.
    Regards, Nick.

    Looking for advise, I usually use balsa for the keel and frame. I want to try plywood. Size, cutting, gluing, etc come to mind. Thoughts appreciated.
