DescriptionA new method to make furniture cuttings from the best of logging residues was tested. Bolts 4 through 8 feet long were sawed to three-sided cants. The cants were then resawed to boards and dried. The dried boards were gang ripped and defects removed to obtain clear-one-face cuttings of random width and length. The 6-, 7-, and 8-foot long bolts gave good yields by this system, while the 4- and 5-foot bolts did not.
