DescriptionA hardwood shortage of high-grade lumber exists while there is a surplus of low-grade hardwood timber. Two things are needed for the surplus to correct the shortage: a new manufacturing system and a new marketing technique. Utilization research at the Princeton Forestry Sciences Laboratory has developed the new system for converting low-grade hardwood for furniture use. The manufacturing steps can be integrated with the existing marketing system from the timber grower to the logger to the sawmiller to the dimension maker to the furniture producer.
