Description: From an industry point-of-view, procurement of raw material and primary manufacture present problems today and challenges for tomorrow. So that you may become more familiar with the white birch industry and more specifically with Saunders Brothers, I will briefly explain some of the products we manufacture and some of the methods we use to make them. In some ways, we do things quite differently from the long-log users in the industry. Some of the veneer firms in the birch industry make such items as toothpicks, ice cream spoons, and tongue depressors. Other firms in the industry make thread spools and furniture turnings. Our company makes dowels for the hardware trade, toy and furniture items, novelty turnings, and pool cues.
