    Four Methods of converting low-grade yellow-poplar lumber into high-grade furniture core material (lumber core) were compared. High-grade core material is used in tops, shelves, doors, and drawer fronts and only minor defects are allowed. Three gang-rip first and the conventional crosscut-first manufacturing sequences were evaluated in combination with 1 Common, 2A Common and 2B Common lumber. Results based on costs and yields indicate that 2A and 2B Common lumber and either of two gang-rip first techniques would be the most effective choices.
