Hi I am finding it difficult to purchase good quality Birch Faced plywood. I have already made one wooden clock from an old school desk which is ticking away as I write. But I now want to make one using ply. I have recently moved to Rutland and have tried all the local DIY and wood suppliers but to no avail. I only need 1/4" x 6 sq ft and 1/8" x 1 sq ft. Can anybody suggest a good supplier within the East Midlands area?

Wickes stock 6.5mm thick birch ply, if your after thicker ply then try travis Perkins, they can usually get it for you.

I think you are talking about Birch ply, this is different from the usual marine (and other) ply. If you cannot locate Birch ply then try Jewsons, they do a nice solid void-free ply which they call 'Wisa' ply and the covering is nicer than plain white Birch.
