Birch is one of the most widely used woods for veneer and plywood worldwide.
The colour tends to be a light reddish brown, with nearly white sapwood. The grain is generally straight or slightly wavy, with a fine, even texture. Low natural luster. The wood is also susceptible to insect attack. Birch can be used for plywood, boxes, crates, turned objects, interior trim, and other small specialty wood items.
