Frogwood® Engineered Colored Laminated Birch

Frogwood is a manufactured engineered laminated birch hardwood. Unlike plywood, Frogwood is constructed with the grain of all the individual laminations aligned along the same direction, and every layer is constructed from high-grade veneers. 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 dyes. Please note that the dye contains glycol, and so should NOT be used in an unsealed finished product where it may leach into food. 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.

Understanding New USPS Package Size Surcharges

Surcharges for longer packages

From April 3rd 2022, the Post Office is introducing additional shipping charges for larger packages. If a package is 22" long, USPS adds $4 to the shipping cost. If the package is 30" or more, the surcharge is $15. If the total volume of the package is 2 cubic feet or more, USPS adds an additional $15 to the shipping cost.

This means that a shipment may cost up to $30 more to ship than before the surcharges came into effect
Important note: This level affects only the longest and heaviest shipments, and there is usually a cheaper alternative shipping method from UPS

We have taken steps to ensure that you are shown the true cost of shipping, including surcharges when you make your selection of shipper and service level. However to do this we have had to create a program that estimates the size of the shipping box or package. Due to the complexity of this, we can not guarantee that it is 100% accurate every time.

If the cost of shipping is significantly higher than the shipping fee charged at checkout, we will first check to see if there is a cheaper alternative with approximately the same delivery time, and use that service instead. If in doing so we can save you money on shipping, we will refund you the difference after p&p costs.

If no alternative is available, we will contact you to discuss options - for example to see if it is possible to cut longer pieces down.


A great blank, well packaged and fast shipping

This stuff turns nice! [Frogwood® RHD5]

Much more smooth than rutland, and definitely more "wood like" than dymalux...

It grips very well on all the playing surfaces (slate, glass, aluminum and titanium.) The sound is very good, and lively....does not have the dull plastic tone to it that others have.

Jeff Harrison - Maryland, USA

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.
