DescriptionSHOLO (from SHOrt Log) is a new solution to the old problem of profitably converting low-grade hardwood logs into products or product parts. It does away with the traditional and often uneconomical procedure of sawing low-grade logs into standard lumber and then converting this standard lumber into product parts. Instead, the SHOLO process is used to convert low-grade logs directly into product parts. In this report we describe the SHOLO process and give a specific example of one design of a SHOLO mill.
