MAXI Plywood congratulates the design and joinery team at Wheelers Quality Cabinets in finding and highlighting the innovative visual beauty of MAXI Birch Plywood in their stunningly clever kitchen refit of an inner Melbourne period home.


August 29th, 2014

The clean elegant lines and attention to detail in the mitred corners of the cabinetry in this kitchen refit showcases the quality and integrity of MAXI Birch Plywood. Wheelers Quality Cabinets have allowed the unblemished edge detailing of the Birch panels to become an aesthetically integral design feature. The overall light and welcoming look of the kitchen is enhanced by the natural warmth and strength of the highlighted Birch feature cabinets and centre workbench.


Birch is sourced from the cold snow-capped regions of northern Europe and Russia. This cold pristine environment allows the unique close-grained Birch to slowly grow, so when milled and pressed into plywood sheets the core layers are virtually free of structural blemishes and of consistent premier quality. The standard nominal veneer for the core of Birch plywood is 1.4mm thick; has high physic-mechanical parameters; excellent strength/stiffness; high wear and impact resistance, all of which produce a highly engineered panel offering superior stability and product integrity.


MAXI Birch is B/BB Premium exterior-grade raw Birch plywood – the B-grade face is the highest quality grade available. The creative team at Wheelers Quality Cabinets have skilfully utilised this smooth clean plywood face and feature edge layers to maximum advantage. In its natural state, MAXI Birch retains a pure pale colour and once applied with protective clear coatings has minimal yellowing with age, thereby ensuring the enduring fresh clean pale look so desired by design and creative joinery teams.
