The Veneer And Plywood Industry Of Queensland

Sub-Department of Forestry, Queensland, (1933) The Veneer And Plywood Industry Of Queensland. Technical Report. State of Queensland.



This small book is issued to enable those who are interested in veneer and plywood to gain some idea of the extent of this industry in Queensland and its resources in beautifully figured woods and high-class utility softwoods.

More than twenty timbers in all shades of ornate colour and variety of figuring are available within the State for veneer and plywood purposes of all kinds, while the efficiency of the factories is such that the humblest
cottage can be made beautiful by the use of choice veneered panels at low cost.

Such a natural advantage as this, coupled with the variety of native hardwoods of unexcelled durability eminently suitable for exterior sheetings and polished internal floorings may well make home builders in other lands envious of their friends in Queensland.

In addition to work provided for timber and transport workers, the Queensland Veneer and Plywood Industry in 1933 provided direct employment for 448 hands in its factories.

Although the Industry is only eighteen years old in this State, the capital invested has already grown to 370,000 pounds and Queensland factories are now capable of supplying more than the present demand of the whole of the Australian States and New Zealand.

P. PEASE, Minister for Lands.
