Frogwood® Engineered Laminated Birch Plywood

Frogwood is a manufactured engineered laminated birch hardwood, constructed with the grain of all the individual laminations aligned along the same direction. This ensures that when Frogwood blanks are turned, the material cuts consistently without any tearing of the material.

ALL Frogwood blanks are cut with the grain.

Frogwood laminations are dyed using water-soluble FDA approved dyes, and every panel of the material made goes through an autoclave moisture removal process. This extends the manufacturing time, but it minimizes any shrinkage issues and eliminates the cracking problems often seen in imported laminated birch materials.

As in most laminated bonded wood products, Frogwood does contain some formaldehyde from the lamination bonding agent. Levels are kept as low as possible consistent with the delivery of a robust reliable product.

Reviews

Nice material: easy to polish, high gloss finish, slightly flexible - better than SpectraPly® and lighter than stabilized alternatives :)

I found working with FrogBlanks on the lathe very satisfying. No tear-out, as sometimes happens with laminated wood (e.g. when working with skateboard decks). Can't wait to turn more, and apply them to other projects.

Working with Frogwood®

Machining Frogwood

Use very sharp cutting tools, carbide if possible. Medium spindle speed for turning with low to medium feed rate for roughing. High spindle speed low feed rate for finishing. Consider this material like cutting cherry not soft like pine or hard like ash. The material is birch which has been bonded together with an adhesive under pressure which tends to make it slightly harder.

 

Finishing Frogwood

Frogwood is made from birch, a reasonably open-grained material. This takes well to all types of shellacs, Polyurethanes and other surface finishes. This material can also be finished with CA glue finish if desired. In our experience when producing finished products using this material, many customers preferred a simple high polish waxed finish.
