Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: A precise research methodology is described by which internal log-defect locations may help select hardwood log ortentation and sawing procedure to improve lumber value. Procedures for data collection, data handling, simulated sawing, and data analysis are described. A single test log verified the methodology. Results from this log showed significant differences in lumber-value yield due to circumferential log ortentation and sawing method.
