Birch Plywood is a material manufactured from thin layers or "plies" of wood veneer that are glued together with adjacent layers having their wood grain rotated up to 90 degrees to one another. ... All plywood bind resin and wood fiber sheets (cellulose cells are long, strong and thin) to form a composite material.

Uses of Birch
In terms of hardwoods, Birch is easy to use and reasonably priced, making it a great craft wood. Birch is a strong, hard and heavy birch that possesses good shock resistance.

Birch wood is fine-grained and pale in color with a satiny sheen. Birch plywood is made from lamination of birch veneer and it is light but strong. Birch plywood is among the strongest and most stable of all plywood, but it is unsuitable for exterior use. Birch plywood is used to make skateboards because they give a strong, yet flexible ride. Birch is also used in speakers and musical instruments, as it gives resonance to both higher and lower frequencies, providing a fuller sound than woods such as maple.
