A group of Fort Worth residents has taken pride in their plywoods.
The plywood they’re selling on eBay is an impressive $100,000 worth of wood that was once the property of the company that built Fort Worth’s downtown park.
In the 1970s, Fort Worth was the city with the highest percentage of plywood used in construction in the United States.
In the early 1990s, it was the only city with more than 50 percent.
The plywood is the stuff of dreams for a lot of people.
It’s one of the few materials used to build buildings and buildings don’t usually survive in the dry, cold weather that’s a part of most winter.
But some Fort Worthites are using plywood to save the city.
In fact, some people are using it for their own projects and for private uses.
“It’s pretty amazing to see people who live in the city and have this great heritage,” said John Wiesner, who owns a small construction company.
“It’s something that you don’t see very often.
It looks very beautiful.
It can be used for everything.”
Fort Worth’s cityscape is a mix of wood and brick.
It stretches from Interstate 35 to Interstate 35A to I-35W.
Wiesener says he loves the contrast in the color.
“You can see the colors, but it’s a lot darker than you might think,” he said.
The company, Wiesners Woodwork, is located in the heart of downtown.
The company sells plywood, which it uses to make everything from plywood pallets to plywood cabinets.
It also has plans to build a new building on the city’s downtown.
“Our goal is to be in downtown for 25 years and we’re going to make a good profit on it,” Wiesinger said.
Wiesner said his customers love the plywood.
“I’ve been selling plywood since I was 15 years old,” he recalled.
“I started in my family business when I was 10 years old.
I’ve done it for over 40 years.
And it’s something I’m proud of.”
He’s proud of his plywood too.
“There’s a group of people that have put the plywoods in the park, and they are really proud of it,” he continued.
“People are going to love it, and I’m sure they’re going in the parks.”
In a news release, the city said it is in the process of acquiring the plyboard for future uses.
Wivesinger said he hopes to eventually turn the project into a public park.
