Plywood

Recommended Posts

"The center is removed as waste."?

 

I thought that's where fence posts came from.

This is from a day when the center layers were made from a quality wood. These days only the outer layer, some times both sometimes just one have a quality wood.

 

in our forests we often find quaking aspen. The most cost effective thing to do is leave and let it rot unless there is a plywood mill nearby, then it is used as the inner layers of plywood sheets.

 

I watched a wood turner do this with it, he also makes lampshades.

 

this one is not aspen.

I've got my eye on a stand of popple and birch on my place. I'm told its good Vernier quality timber. Probably better have a pro look at it before it blows over. Lost some nice trees in the last couple years. Had a couple big cherry trees that ended up as camp wood.
