DescriptionBlanks are rough-dimension parts of a specific size which may be solid or glued up; quality depends on the final use of the material. Standard-size blanks are blanks made to standard thicknesses, lengths, and widths for each desired quality. Blanks in a few standard sizes can be used to make the thousands of different size rough-dimension parts needed by a furniture or cabinet manufacturer. They can be made from lower grade mixes of lumber or other material that results in lower costs and plentiful sources of material. This article discusses the use and manufacture of standard-size blanks for the furniture and cabinet industry.
