We have a variety of different plywood sheet types to choose from which we can cut to any size or shape using our CNC router for a greater level of accuracy and repeatability. Whatever shape you have in mind, we can cut it – just send us your drawings, in either CAD or a sketch format, and we can create it for you. In addition to our ability to cut any shape or curve to plywood, our CNC router can be used for rebating, pocketing and hole cutting on virtually any sheet material. We also provide the option of laser cutting, CNC engraving services and miter cutting to your plywood sheets as well.
Using state-of-the-art UV printers, we can print full sheets of plywood in one go, providing a professional finish at a much faster turnaround time than painting. We currently only list 8x4 sheets (2440x1220mm) but we’re able to purchase and cut sheets of up to 2000x3000mm, so get in touch with our team today to discuss your specific requirements. With optional next day delivery, your products can be with you quickly. If you are placing larger orders, we can deliver throughout most of the UK using our own transport service.

12mm marine plywood is a durable wood that can be used for external projects where moisture or damp conditions are present. The process of producing marine plywood results in a minimal gap between the core sheets of the wood which minimises the risk of moisture seeping in and damaging the structure of the sheeting. It’s a great wood for use in humid or wet areas as it can withstand these environments well over long periods of time. 12mm marine plywood can be used for various applications, making it a versatile material to work with. We offer custom cut 12mm marine plywood in any size or shape you require, as well as fast delivery so you can use your products as soon as possible. Our other popular size is 18mm marine plywood, cut to size or shape.
12mm Marine Plywood Grades
Wood comes in a variety of grades; we offer the grades listed below. See our plywood grading guide for more information on the types available.
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 that will be exposed to harsh weather conditions.
Advantages of 12mm Marine Plywood
Marine plywood is hardwearing and easy to work with, with a smooth and knot-free surface that makes it ideally suited to painting and staining. One of the main reasons for using marine plywood over standard plywood is for its durability in wet and humid conditions – while standard wood doesn’t cope well in wet conditions, leading to rotting and delamination, marine plywood is designed to withstand these environments much more effectively without losing any structural integrity.
12mm marine plywood is versatile and can be used for a host of different applications and in various industries. It can be cut easily with a handsaw or an electric saw and can also be bent into shape without cracking or splintering. This pliability provides additional options for ways in which this wood can be used, and one of the reasons why it’s so commonly used for applications that differ in shape such as boats and ships. Marine plywood is resistant to cracking and twisting and can also be used with screws and nails without splitting, making it easy to fix into place securely.
Applications of 12mm Marine Plywood
12mm marine plywood can be used to line vehicles or trailers, create storage containers and for cold frames in gardens, as well as for shelving in garages or sheds which are prone to moisture. Because of the process of producing marine plywood, it is reliable in applications where the structural integrity of the wood is of paramount importance, as it won’t rot or become unstable over time. 12mm marine plywood can be used for concrete frameworks and in applications for construction as a durable and strong foundation for different projects. The thickness of this sheeting provides added strength and stability for wall or roof linings and for outdoor structures that can withstand exposure to high winds and harsh weather conditions. For this reason, it’s a great material to use for site hoardings as it won’t become damaged or lose its strength when exposed to water and poor weather conditions but it also thick enough to stay safe and secure.

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.

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.

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.
