Description: The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate short length lumber (less than 8 feet long) utilization opportunities within the furniture and cabinet industries. If such a high-value market for short length lumber could be developed, the profit potential for many sawmills would increase and the forest resource management options in many areas would expand. Short length lumber furniture part yield and processing cost information were combined in a simulation model. An economic analysis of the modelâs output indicated that the production of rough furniture parts from short length lumber in a crosscut-first mill is economically feasible with careful matching of cutting bills and short length lumber input schedules.
