Description: Planing and moulding is an important step in the value-added manufacture of wood products, and recent advances in Alaska have been noteworthy. Just a few years ago, most planing occurred on simple shop planers, producing lumber for retail sale or for wood working uses such as cabinet stock. Currently there are at least 26 planers and 13 moulders in-production at Alaskan dry kiln sites (Nicholls et al. 2006), and the expansion of the moulding industry has gone hand-in-hand with that of the dry kiln industry. This number does not include additional machines used by wood working firms that do not own dry kilns such as cabinet and furniture producers.
