    Default Laminating Plywood To get thicker Board

    I have one sheet of 12mm 1200x450 birch plywood and one sheet of 6mm 1200x450 red oak plywood (from bunnings). Would there
    be any warping if I use titebond glue to laminate the two sheets together?, I'm just thinking maybe because titebond is waterbased it'll introduce moisture. I'll be using a vacuum bag to press both pieces together.

    Yeah, should be fine. Just make sure to spread the glue evenly and give it plenty of time to dry fully

    Hi Elan, just been reading this guys thread: Laminating 2 types of plywood

    What's the difference between his situation and mine?. Hope you had a good Xmas & New year mate.

    The sheet thickness difference there was much greater, so the individual plies would probably also have been quite different in thickness and move at different rates.

    I might have been wrong there, I might be wrong here, ply can do some weird things, but I'm more confident that this one will work.

    Or, for the extra $35, you could just buy an 18mm sheet and be done 1200 x 600mm 18mm Plywood Red Oak - Bunnings Australia

    Yeah I was thinking of getting that stuff but I was thinking the birch ply from our friends at Timberwood is far superior grade of plywood and would have less voids and less warping issues.
