Synopsis: Assuming you don't want your cabinets, RTA furniture or other products made from plywood to smell like dirty diapers, a quick look at A hardwood plywood manual by Ang Schramm is in order. According to Schramm, South American Lapuna Sumauma wood has a high starch content that is susceptible to attack by anaerobic bacteria while sitting on the bottoms of holding ponds at the veneer plant. The byproducts, butyric acid and caproic acid, exude an odor that may not always be noticeable in properly dried wood in dry conditions, but becomes offensive when humidity increases. As can be expected, veneer from this species is in low demand, therefore cheap, and manufacturers buying on price point alone can find themselves in possession of a product whose odor is, at this time, irreversible and without remedy. Not all of A Hardwood Plywood Manual is so esoteric. The book's 157 pages are organized into sections covering variations in appearance, the veneer manufacturing process, types of veneer matching, grades and product standard, substrates, the hardwood plywood manufacturing process, meeting customer expectations and troubleshooting common problems. Liberally sprinkled with black-and-white photographs and diagrams, the book gives excellent detail on describing, the processes of plywood and veneer manufacturing so the reader can better understand the advantages and limitations of the product and the various processes. For instance, the chapter on troubleshooting provides a diagram showing why one side of veneer (tight side) is more heat-reflective and impervious to finish than is the other (loose) side, which is more light-refractive and absorbent. By understanding the relative differences between the sides and why those differences exist, it is then possible to present an explanation why starch book-matching veneers has the problem of adjacent sheets of veneer having different light-reflecting/refracting and finish absorbing characteristics. The manual can then proceed to explain different techniques to overcome the variation and present a more uniform appearance: in this case, glue-sizing or wash coating, and to recommend specific products to help achieve the desired result.

About the Author: Ang Schramm is the product engineer for Columbia Forest Products' Cuthbert, Ga., operation, with 20 years' service at that location.

Book Description Purdue University Press, United States, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. As the name implies, this text is designed to take the reader through the entire manufacturing process of hardwood plywood. Because this is a relatively small portion of the total forest products industry, there has previously been no one book completely dedicated to this field. Since the product addressed is an aesthetic one, subject to the perception of the observer, the book logically begins by explaining in lay terminology the more common natural characteristics that manifest themselves on a decorative panel surface. Once the book establishes a better understanding of the natural characteristics of the wood for the reader, it addresses the many processes by which hardwood and decorative veneers may be cut and manufactured into full-face form, followed by an explanation of the grading process that determines the value of the face. Subsequent chapters address the various options and attributes for substrate material, followed by an explanation of the hardwood plywood manufacturing process. The last two chapters deal with the complexities of meeting customer expectations and troubleshooting common problems. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9781557532428
