This chapter identifies opportunities to build large businesses in wood products by differentiating certain types of furniture and other goods, including musical instruments, theatre equipment, and weaving looms. It examines Athens’s shipbuilding program, identifying the likely numbers employed at the docks in the hull construction and assembly of triremes and on other tasks such as cleaning and maintenance. It also specifies the ship componentry supplied by Athens’s larger woodworking, textile and metalworking workshops and the likely impact of these orders on industry composition and firm structure.
