Hardwood veneer is a very thin layer of wood sliced or peeled from a hardwood log. It is a unique and valuable forest product. It is usually made from the "highest quality" logs--those that have very few imperfections such as knots and decay. Hardwood veneer has many uses, and is very important to Pennsylvania's forest industry. This four-page, full-color publication explores what veneer is, how it is made, and its many uses. It is part of an educational series for youth. (2002).

The educational effectiveness of the flier can be evaluated through the use of one of two pre and post-experiences designed especially for youth. Each experience is one-page in length, specific to their flier topic, and employs a selection of simple testing formats, such as fill-in the blank, matching, ordering, or a "crossword puzzle." The same experience is intended for use before/after the flier is used as part of an educational activity.
