DescriptionLong, character-marked furniture cuttings are easily obtained when low-grade (2A and 2B Common) yellow-poplar lumber is first ripped into strips and then crosscut to remove objectionable defects. Overall yields of character-marked material using this procedure were 78% from 1 Common and 2A Common and 70% from 2B Common yellow-poplar lumber. Furthermore, 82% of the 1 Common cuttings, 61% of the 2A Common cuttings, and 35% of the 2B Common cuttings were longer than 50 inches.
