About this product

3mm laser grade Birch plywood sheet

Being a natural product, the colour/shade of wood will alter with each batch. 

Every effort is made to supply flat sheets but unavoidable warping may occur. It may be necessary to tape the wood to the laser bed.

Plywood has a tendency to curl because the veneer is rotary peeled from cylindrical logs and the nature of the fibres will tend to revert to their original format: ie round.

This means that while there are manufacturing standards for length, width and squareness there are none for the flatness of plywood. Plywood of 12mm and less have fewer laminations so will be more prone to curling, both on account of the forces and tensions within the board and the board's relative weakness with respect to external forces during storage and transport.

We recommend customers try to keep stocks of plywood so the wood has sufficient time to acclimatise to their new environment. Where possible, please store where the tempeature/humidy is constant.

    Laser Ply was good, cut easy and no patches, it was a bit warped, but I understand why this occurs, I just tape it to the laser cutter bed. Thanks

    Generally good quality and work well with a 40W CO2 machine.
    Missed out on 5 stars due to the following:
    - Patches of resin / knots don't cut well, so have to do multiple passes to cut those spots.
    - There is warping even though the boards are stored flat in living space, so no extremes of cold / humidity.

    Generally good but very hit and miss as to how flat the sheets are. Engraves and cuts nice but avoid jobs that cover an entire sheet.

    Although we gave comment what we'd prefer as we've been asked we got extremely bended sheets, the surface was repaired on many sheets. It took more than a week and daily calls to sort out the quality issues and to talk to the right person. We didn't have a refund, because the delivery would have been more, than the refund. And on the paperwork all of these was maked as "A" grade!

    Quick dispatch and postage, which was well packaged. The sheets were significantly warped, however I was able to cut the sheets into 4 before using them on the laser which overcame the problem. If I had had a bigger project, I would have had to return the sheets as no amount of masking tape could have held those buggers down!

    Brilliant material which I use all the time for laser cutting. Hobarts kindly cut the sheets in half so they fit my machine. Greatly appreciated!

    I bought a pack of 10 pieces. The wood was very warped, I struggled to get a decent cut on it even weighing it down with lots of lead weights to keep it flat. The wood also gave of a lot resin as it was cutting, so much that my laser cutter was wet when picked up the piece after it had been cut.

    The wood also had an ink stamp on one end that was hard to sand out as it went down into the wood quite far, I wouldn't recommend this for any projects where the wood is going to be the final surface.
    I phoned Hobarts to ask them about it and they said someone would get back to me, I'm still waiting for that call, don't think I'll be buying anymore from them in the future.

    This the best laser plywood I have tried, and I have tried a few. It isn't flat -- plywood this thin never is, but the sheets from Hobarts are as flat as I have seen. To laser cut plywood this thin, it needs to be taped flat. The quality of the birch face is good with very few repairs.

    A consistent laser ply that gives good results when used to engrave onto. Sometimes a patch here and there that doesnt cut out due to the glues, I guess but rare.
    Comes to me well packaged without any damage or marks.
    My only issue, always warped!! As soon as you open the packaging, you can see it springing out of shape. When used on a laser machine that have a very specific focal length, from one side of a board to the other there could be as much as 30mm out of focus! When you use a whole sheet at a time, this is unacceptable and impractical. It may be due to the kiln process before dispatch but I just want a straight an level board.
