What is birch wood used for?
Birch wood is commonly used for plywood, cabinets, and veneer. It is a hardwood on the level of rock maple, which allows it to be milled into large sheets of unbroken wood. Birch also works well for items like butcher blocks and is an affordable cabinetry and trim option. The wood also has a natural resonance, working particularly well for speaker cabinets and drum shells.
