RE: History of Plywood

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We will be celebrating the 100th year of plywood production in North
American in 2005.  Please see attached link for more historical
information.

>From my brief review of this information, looks like the "modern age" of
plywood was circa 1934, due to the invention of waterproof adhesives.

I am curious, does anyone know how long ago it was when plywood was
first manufactured?
