Panel Age 50: A Celebration of the Past Fifty Years of Structural & Non-Structural Wood Prod Develop
Sorry for the inconvenience, this product is no longer available.
This special publication addresses many of the amazing accomplishments of the past 50 years in the panel and engineered wood products industries (structural and non-structural). Somebody asked me why, in the year 2013, did we decide to look back at 50 years, to 1963. The reason is because 1963 was the year that softwood plywood in the Southern United States began to take shape with three plants being built, all of which started up the next year. Until southern pinewood came along, the structural panel industry was missing a big piece of its puzzle. Also, about this same period is when the non-structural panel industry,including particleboard and then MDF, really began to find infrastructure and resemble what we see today. Author: Dan Shell
