We offer a range of plywood types for different applications which we can cut to any size or shape using our CNC router, for a high level of accuracy and repeatability. If you have a specific shape in mind, we can make it a reality. All you need to do is send us your drawings in either CAD format or a sketch and we can create it. As well as cutting shapes and curves into plywood, our CNC router can also be used for rebating, pocketing and hole cutting - not just for plywood but virtually any sheet material. We also offer laser cutting and CNC engraving services for added decorative options.
If you’re looking for a material for printing, you may want to consider birch plywood. Using state-of-the-art UV printers, we can print full sheets of plywood in one go, providing a reliable finish and quicker results than can be achieved with painting. We currently only list 8x4 sheets (2440x1220mm) but we can purchase and cut sheets of up to 2000x3000mm, so get in touch with our team today to discuss your requirements. We offer optional next day delivery if you’re working to a deadline and if you have a larger order, we have our own transport service which operates throughout most of the UK.

12mm plywood sheeting is a high-quality yet affordable material that can be used to great effect in various applications and environments. Plywood sheets are produced by sheets of wood layered on top of one another at 90-degree angles and glued together before being compressed at a high pressure to create a solid and hard-wearing wood. Because of the construction of plywood, it has great strength and can withstand short-term weight and pressure without bending or warping. We can cut 12mm plywood sheets to any size or shape you require for added convenience, as well as providing quick delivery.
12mm Plywood Sheets Types and Gradings
There are several different varieties of plywood, depending on the application you’re using it for, but the four most common types of plywood are softwood, hardwood, birch and marine ply. Wood comes in a variety of grades - we offer the grades listed below. See our wood grading guide for more information on the types available.
- Softwood plywood is the most commonly manufactured plywood and is available in various thicknesses. It’s typically used in construction projects as it’s affordable and versatile. There are several grades of this wood to choose between, from C+/C grade which has knots on both sides of the wood, with those on the facing C+ side filled and touch sanded.
- Hardwood plywood is made from stronger timbers and is commonly used for applications which require longevity. Chinese hardwood plywood is a high BB/CC grade wood which means it has few knots and slight discolouration to the surface of the wood, with a CC grade reverse.
- Birch plywood that we offer comes in high B/BB grade which provides a clear and smooth surface and is best-suited to applications where the appearance of the wood is important or for printing onto.
- Marine plywood is for use in environments where the wood is exposed to moisture for extended periods. The type of wood we offer has a high-quality BB/BB face grade and is well-suited to demanding environments such as gardens, bathrooms and parks as well as for roof supports and advertising panels.
Advantages of 12mm Plywood Sheets
From its high strength and lightweight properties to the affordability of this material, plywood sheets have a great number of beneficial and unique qualities. The layered construction of this wood results in incredible strength. It can also cope with heavy weights being placed on it without bending, as it can spread the impact efficiently for less tensile strength. It’s resistant to changes in temperature and moisture without losing any structural integrity. 12mm plywood sheets can also be used in a range of environments, both internal and external, offering plenty of versatility.
Applications of 12mm Plywood Sheets
12mm plywood sheets have a multitude of uses and are typically used in the construction industry for general joinery. Plywood is an affordable material which is why it is a common material to use for concrete frameworks, prototyping and temporary structures. It can also be used for as well as for garages and sheds, as the thicker sheeting provides more rigidity. 12mm plywood is sturdy enough to provide a stable surface for shelving and display units, as it can hold heavier items without bending or warping, as well as being ideal for packing cases and containers.

Frequently Asked Questions

We cut to a tolerance of +/-3mm.
What is your delivery timescale?
3-7 working days.
Is mirrored acrylic like normal mirror?
Mirrored acrylic is a flexible material, and needs to be attached to a perfectly flat surface. We recommend attaching it to MDF or something similar, making sure the adhesive is spread in a thin even layer across the acrylic. we also recommend using the 5mm thick acrylic as it is more rigid.
Can you cut any shape?
Yes, in acrylic. We will shortly be able to also cut any shape in polycarbonate as well.
What's your standard radius corner?
20mm, but we can cut to your requirements.
How many holes do I need in my acrylic?
1 per corner should be sufficient for smaller pieces. You might want to consider an extra hole in the middle if your sheet is larger.
Can I cut acrylic?
Yes, you can. Just take it slow and easy.
Can I put acrylic behind a hob?
Not if it is gas or electric. You need a gap of 5cm between an induction hob and the acrylic.
Do you fit the acrylic?
No, we don't. We do provide some templates which should help you to take your measurements. The acrylic is easy to install by any competent DIYer.
