My local hardwood dealer sell both Baltic Birch brand and Chinese imitation ‘Baltic Birch’.

My findings: true Baltic Birch is very stable, but I’ve found the Chinese version to be subject to warping.

I frequently use the BB for making jigs. When using the Knock-Off product, I’ve had trouble with the jigs twist and warp.

Therefore, I always insist upon BB and no longer use the knock-off stuff.
