A Quest for Planking: a Report on Douglas-fir, Jequitiba, and Meranti Plywood - Mess Hall/ WLUW, 2007

Announcement Postcard the Quest for Planking

In November of 2006, we gave a slide presentation at Mess Hall titled "The Quest for Planking: a Report on Douglas-fir, Jequitiba, and Meranti Plywood" as part of the series Marginal Travel organized by Mike Wolfe. The lecture gave an overview of the MTBE's yearlong search for affordable marine grade plywood, the life and findings of botanical explorer David Douglas, and the history and construction of marine grade plywood. We adapted in February for the radio program Something Else hosted by Philip von Zweck on WLUW.
