Sourcing 6mm Sapele marine-grade plywood

Post by ZGphoto »

Hi Everyone! Does anyone know where I may source a quarter-sheet of 6mm Sapele marine-grade plywood? So far, every supplier I have found, only sells it in full-sheets, but I only need a small piece (~10"x13") to make a new step-plate for my Nautiraid. Anyone have some scraps laying around? Thanks!

Hopefully someone here can help. You might consider asking on the WoodenBoat Forum, or Duckworks Facebook page, even trying Wanted on Craigslist. Good luck!

I mentioned this on the Facebook page, but I’ll repeat it here for readers who don’t follow that group: Woodworking stores like Rockler and Woodcraft often sell smaller pieces of Baltic Birch, which is a very high quality plywood that is superior some grades of marine plywood. It has no voids, and many thin veneers. I’ve used it for many projects.
