Just in case any of you other American members need a source for birch plywood (Multiplex), take a look here:<br><br><a href="http://www.woodcraft.com/Family/2004113/Plywood.aspx" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.woodcraft.com/Family/2004113/Plywood.aspx</a><br><br>Available up to 3/4" (18mm) in various sizes. Check their store locator to see if there's a location near you. Shipping of large pices of wood probably cost nearly as much as the wood itself. I just discovered there's one not far from me. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">

You can find small pieces on ebay too. They are expensive for the amount you get, but when you don't want a large amount or to get raped on shipping it's a good option.

You can also buy the thinner pieces which usually cost a lot less, and just glue them together with wood glue or epoxy. I've worked with their 1/4" plywood. 7 plies per 1/4" is pretty solid, and there are no voids at all.
