    My plans call for baltic birch or finnish birch, I see Aircraft Spruce has finnish birch and domestic birch both meeting aircraft specs, the domestic birch being cheeper, can domestic be used or is finnish birch that much better? Also a local lumber yard (not a big box) has baltic birch in the 5 by 5 sheets.

    what to pick whats the pros and cons.

    Most of the time it is not going to matter. Make sure the glue used at your local store is what is used in aircraft ply. What kind of plane?
