The basic wood characteristics and properties certainly affect the manufacturing process. But what about the special characteristics of wood (like tension wood, bacterial infection, staining, spiral grain, juvenile wood) that cause headaches from time to time? Is all oak the same? Is all hickory the same? Is all pine the same? Is all soft maple the same? Is it possible, at the least, to identify and eliminate problem pieces of wood early in the manufacturing process or should we ignore them and let them go through until the final inspection finds the problem? Learn some practical aspects of wood that affects profits.
Come learn more about wood manufacturers and woodworkers during the session "Wood 101. All about Wood for Manufacturers and Woodworkers" at the IWF Education Conference.
