Author: Araman, Philip A.; Gatchell, Charles J; Reynolds, Hugh W.

Date: 1982

Source: FS Research Paper NE-494. 27 pp.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Standard-size, kiln-dried hardwood blanks (panels) of specified lengths, widths, thicknesses, and qualities can be used instead of lumber to produce rough dimension furniture parts. Standard sizes were determined by analyzing thousands of part requirements from 20 furniture and 12 kitchen cabinet companies. The International Woodworking Machinery and Furniture Supply Fair - USA collected the data and supported the analysis. Recommended blank sizes and examples of rough dimension parts for furniture and cabinets made from blanks are included.
