    Description

    To produce better pallets, the higher quality parts should be used in the more vulnerable positions in the pallet. To determine the feasibility of doing this, pallet parts cut from commonly used lumber mixes were graded into four quality levels. The distributions obtained indicate that sufficient numbers of high-quality parts can be cut from existing raw material to allow selective placement. Four species groups - eastern hardwood, southern pine, Douglas-fir, and a small amount of western hardwood - were included in the study.
