A perennial question...

How much per 18mm sheet? I see most people are up in the £70+vat range, is this now the usual unless you buy in bulk?

What do you mean by bulk? I ordered 8 sheets today and I think the price was around £37 + VAT. That will be latvian (better than russian) but may well have some patches where knots in the face veneer have been removed.

Wow, prices of this have crept up loads since I last looked (few years now). Shame we havent got any 28mm sheets left at work (russian birch with the odd 'dutchman' (a Normism??) in the face), I'd ebay them £££££ :)

Ok, so Latvian is ok for veneered work?

I've been quoted £68 inc.VAT from my local supplier, which is ok I think. Seems theprice goes up dramatically once you go over 9mm

Where I work we get malasyian / Chinese ply. Some of it is good quality, some poor, but most is fairly decent. Cost price for a sheet of 12mm ply is about £15.

I pay about £35/£40 for 18mm lat ply from Meyer timber, probably the same place as Dodge? Its OK for carcasing, but has some patches and the odd bit of colour, so I don't use it for face work. But you can get the good stuff, perhaps you have been quoted for that? But it seems cheap for that, so I think you should ring round a few suppliers as you have been quoted high IMHO.

B & Q sell 2440 x 1220 x 18mm sheets of Temperate Hardwood ply for £59.99 at the moment.

They used to provide a cutting service too. Not sure if this is still the case though.

Totton Timber want £62.83 delivered and I expect that will include your area.
They are generally high price but good quality.
They quote Latvian/European so I don't know if you have any choice as to which.

If you have a Jewson's near you, have a look at their 'WISA-Twin Plywood' it's as good as Birch ply, not as heavy and quite a lot cheaper if you can get it at trade price.
