I have a lot of well-dried branches and I was wondering whether it was possible to turn them into constructional lumber by gluing them together as follows:
- cut them into equal length parts of about 20 / 30 cm
- square them so they all have the same thickness (about as thick as a finger)
- glue them all together in a brick pattern
Would this glued together board be as strong as plates from tree trunks? By which I mean: could it be use constructionally?
And if so, why aren't those kind of board produced on a large scale? I suppose it's better for the planet if only cut off branches are used.
