peeler log
 n.— «The reason for this is quite simple. It’s my understanding that plywood is made by shaving thin strips or “plys” of veneer from large logs (ie old-growth). These logs are called “peeler logs.” Well, most of the “peeler logs” have already been cut down over the past 40 years.» —“Why the Layoffs at the Bonner Mill?” by Matthew Koehler New West (Missoula, Montana) May 9, 2007.
