you need big huge Alder logs and a pressure steamer than can steam the wood all the way
to the middle to 300 degrees F. then a big lathe that can spin and cut the slices off in 9’ sheets.
and a big overhead crane to haul all that stuff around.
not to mention a big building with a 20 foot ceiling.
dang – and the list goes on and on and on and onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

THEN – have your accountant sit down and do the numbers of what it takes for you
to make your own plywood vs store bought from the finest wholesale hardware store in your area.
