Hey guys, just wanted to take some time to add some info to this post as I appreciate the effort in collating the info and especially the insight from Captain. I just picked up 7 sheets of Baltic Birch ply from Phoenix Hardwoods. They were a bit cheaper than Woodworkers Source (who’s just up the road from them). Being really new to woodworking I always feel like an outsider when I’ve visited both of these places. Nothing really that bad, but I don’t feel very welcome either. Perhaps it’s just my uneasiness with something that I don’t completely understand, but with everybody else in woodworking being so very respectful, courteous, patient, and eager to share their knowledge, I’ve never understood why so many lumber yards give people that feeling. I have to rent a trailer and from Uhaul and borrow a truck just to pick this ply up so it’s not an easy trip for me.

Anyway, just for some pricing info as of 4/14/2014:

18mm Baltic Birch 5×5 sheets are $49.75
12mm Baltic Birch 5×5 sheets are $29.75

Again, thanks for posting this info and especially sharing some insight as to who I should look to be spending my money and time with in the future when I need new lumber.

Oh, and I haven’t been there or called yet, but there’s a place out here on the South West side called Gilbert’s that advertises on Craigslist for melamine sheets at $25 a 4×8 sheet. Here’s a link if you’re curious. I may go check them out soon.
