Phenolic-surfaced plywood is simply Baltic-birch plywood with a thin layer of phenolic resin in both faces. But that little layer of resin makes all the difference in the world. This specialty material is ideal for woodworking shops because it is strong, flat, and durable, and its glossy surface is perfect for jigs, cauls, fences, cabinets, and other uses. Any place where you need to run workpieces across a surface is the perfect place for phenolic. Stuart Lipp offers advice on finding, purchasing, and using phenolic plywood to make life easier in your shop. From Fine Woodworking #198
