DescriptionOak pallet material supplies from sawmills have been and may continue to be difficult to secure in quantities by the pallet industry. Other oak using markets such as the furniture, cabinet, tie and flooring markets need more oak and are paying much higher prices than pallet manufacturers and recyclers wish to or can pay. These other markets are also willing to take more of the low-grade lumber that has traditionally been used for pallet products. This article discusses the use of yellow-poplar stringers fortified with metal connector plates (MCPs) to replace oak stringers.
