Several species of trees are harvested and graded for a wide variety of uses.  Detailed narration and images show woods, sawmill and factory operations in New England, New York and Pennsylvania.  The language and tools remind us of a different time in history.  Boards, fine furniture, apple boxes, salt fish tubs, plywood and shoe heels are made.  From the invention of the peavey in the 1850s to the wide-spread use of the “one-man power saw” in the 1950s, this is a comprehensive look at the many uses of wood and the vast array of products derived from it. “Truly the material of a thousand uses.” Originally produced for The Northeastern Lumber Manufacturers Association in 1953.
