a wood material in the form of sheets made from edgings and faced with veneer strips on both sides. The edging thus serves as the base and the veneer as the facing layer. Edgings for individual sheets are produced from lumber from a specific species of tree, usually softwoods, the softer hardwoods, or birch. The thickness of the edgings is 1.5 times greater than the width. In order to improve the appearance, one or two layers of planed veneer may also be attached with glue, and the surface of the sheets may be polished. Sheets of laminated wood are up to 2.5 m long, up to 1.5 m wide, and 30 mm or more thick. The ultimate strength of a laminated-wood sheet under static bending varies from 6 to 25 meganewtons per m2, and the moisture content is less than 10 percent. Laminated wood is widely used in the furniture industry, in the manufacture of railroad cars, and in construction.
