Veneer anyone?

That stuff is so thin, somehow it wouldn’t surprise me if that’s how they made china birch plywood :X

That is pretty incredible. The wood has to be carefully chosen and prepared
to make such a cut. I’m surprised one man has the strength to pull it.

There are machines called super surfacers from Japan which do the same
thing.

I don’t know if this was done in the West, but in Asia,
in the old days they used to wrap up food and parcels
in wide wood shavings. I never realized a plane could take
such a wide cut, but in ancient times you could see how
cutting a 6” wide shaving was a more efficient way to
make wrapping material than paper-making, for example.
