Title: Laminated lumber may be more profitable than sawn lumber

Author: Koch, P.;

Date: 1976

Source: Forest Industries 103(6):42-44

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: By laminating 1/4-in. rotary-cut veneer into structural lumber, manufacturers can expand lumber output by at least 30% without increasing volume logged. The idea merits intensive study. Manufacturing plus raw material costs should total about $142/Mbf; sales price for desirable widths and lengths of the strong laminated product should approach or exceed $200/Mbf.
