I rang Plyco in Thornbury yesterday regarding Laser Ply. The guy I spoke with, Randall, was more than helpful and emailed a price list straight away. The range of available ply is Hoop Pine, European Poplar, Fijian Cedar, European Beech, Bamboo and Eucalypt in various thicknesses.
I had to go to Melbourne today and as Plyco was in the neighbourhood (Thornbury) I called in. It’s a factory site with a shop front so you can make purchases there or order on the phone and they will courier your order. I note there are other stores. Google laserply.
When I arrived, they were in the middle of a conference or training session in their front show room but were more than happy to look after me. I dealt with Hayley Garvey and she took me out to look at their laser stock. I ended up purchasing their standard size sheet 1200 x 600 x 3 of each product. The prices vary a lot depending on what you are after but the ply is stunning. I don’t want to cut it. :-) Hayley even had stock cut of one of their lines as there was none on the shelf. I then asked if she would label each one with a pencil so I would remember what was what. She went a step further and had some individual labels already pre-printed with the ply species that she stuck on my purchase. They will be expanding their on line presence for laser stock in the next two or three weeks, however you can give them a call and they will happily send stock.
They will cut your stock but will charge $3.00 per cut. If anyone wants pics of any of the product, I’m happy to oblige.
