China is working on the variable 9-13 ply plywood, depending on where you look.  Loose fiber plies included.

I just looked at a piece of ply and was wondering how in the world they made such a perfect plug. NOW I KNOW

That article should be required reading for all middle school students.  Four semi-skilled workers replaced by robots and two computer operators.  Those four jobs will not "come back", they haven't been exported or off shored, they have just disappeared.  Been going on for 50 years and will keep on keeping on.

Read an article a while ago about burger flipper's jobs being roboticized. Pretty soon, a humanities degree won't be worth squat.:D

H-degree is worth anything now?  Hunh.  I have typical engineer's attitude toward the courses I took to keep my GPA above water.  Of course my daughter got a degree in art history.  But then she makes more than I do.  And she's part time.  I've found few careers where the degree really made the career.  Some careers are carefully crafted to eliminate those w/out degree (medicine), but the degree seldom guarantees competency. 

 

Someone builds and maintains robots, but it's usually not the poor shlub who got replaced by the robot.  OTOH, what we're seeing isn't at all new (try finding a buggy whip), but the velocity of it is stunning.  The I-phone is only 11 years old.  Happy Birthday, job killer!

Those underwater basket weaving courses certainly helped my GPA, too.:lol: 

One of our boys earned an MBA while in the AF. He's now working as a robot technician at a salary likely far exceeding what he'd make if he utilized his degree. His brother took some courses in diesel mechanics and, ain't doing too shabby, either. Both earn more than either my wife or I ever did with our MS degrees. But, neither one can make an M&T joint.:cowboy:

Personally, I'd rather be programming a robot that doing the same boring plug filling thing every day.   Art History, huh?  Click and Clack you to joke about that.   But I had two art history classes, I think I took them because they did not require writing essays, that I hated and was never very good at.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
