I guess, before we move into post-Forest Products Lab, were there any other projects that you worked on that you found particularly interesting that you wanted to mention?

RM

Well, the, we had a research team on what's called [pressed-lam?], manufacturing square products from round timbers by peeling them and putting them back together. It was kind of like, you know, thick, thicker veneer and making lumber-like products out of it. It was an interesting approach, and we pushed the limits to how thick you could peel, and stuff like that. But, I mean a lumber made that way is pretty standard now, and actually was being done to some extent before then. So, it was interesting working as part of a research team, we had different, different disciplines involved. And so we, we would---and so a significant part of my time over two or three years was spent on that project. But it was interesting working with different people.
