DescriptionLong length cuttings (up to 60 inches) are obtainable in abundance from No. 2 Common oak lumber. Cutting for the maximum area of clear one face (ClF) parts 18 to 60 inches in length, we found that 46 percent of all the cuttings were 36 inches long or longer. The recovery of the long length cuttings did not reduce the overall yield of parts produced from the lumber. Computer simulation of conventional rough mill practices was based on a detailed analysis of 4,500 board feet of No. 2 Common oak lumber.
