My first thought went to if the OP is using actual Baltic Birch. The stuff sold at the big box stores like the depot, menards, etc, do not sell BB. It is some sort of material made of chinesium. It has a micron thick layer of birch and is full of voids. Looks great until you touch or dare to put a tool to it. I have had massive tear out on that stuff. That’s my two cents.
