After loading it into the truck I asked if there were any scraps and we found one 67x20 that was also 3/4" birch. $80, but what is a good night of sleep worth? Mission accomplished! It's heavy, though, so I will probably need heavier struts.
How many ply is that birch? The more plys the stronger it is and able to support more weight without deforming. I think it comes with up to 12 plys. We used to use it in the pattern shop due to its dimensional stability.

There are 12 distinct alternating light and dark layers. We are going to have to rely on the trailer springs for rebound. LOL
