  ‘Plywood and Veneer-Based Products’ by Richard F. Baldwin published in , again with a focus on North America, provides a broader coverage of the plywood and veneer-based products industry, from the history of the industry, through the manufacture of veneer-based products to business aspects. affected the production of veneer and plywood throughout its history and seems likely to influence the manufacture of veneer-based products into the future. In the early days of plywood production in the USA is was possible to peel giant old-growth Douglas fir, having diameters perhaps exceeding 2 m (Baldwin ). Nowadays, it is. These breakthroughs led to the development of strong and durable wood composites that could be used in a variety of demanding applications. Later developments resulted in laminated veneer lumber and parallel strand lumber, which opened up further application areas for veneer-based, engineered wood products, which continue to expand to this day. He has authored seven books, including the recently published Plywood and Veneer-Based Products, and has written dozens of journal articles concerning manufacturing practices, operating management, maintenance, and forestry issues.

Plywood is constructed from plies or veneers of wood glued together, a technique that may have been used in some form for thousands of years. Actual structural plywood has a more limited history with first mentions made in the 18th century. In the United States, there are four basic softwood (construction) plywood veneer grades you need to worry about: A, B, C and D. Occasionally, you may run into a fifth grade called “C-plugged.” Each sheet will have two grades, such as AC. The first letter is the face veneer grade, and the second is for the back veneer.
