It is meant to be applied to a specific sawmilling situation--to any mill with any type of operating characteristics sawing any species. It can be used to analyze a currently operating mill or a. chip purchaser, and the total number of ovendry tons was determined from the shipment or car number. At the ChipN- Saw, material pencil trimmed or ripped was excluded from the lumber tally. Since actual trimming or ripping was done at the main mill, these chips were not included in the reported chip recovery. The actual chip.

Dimension lumber that can handle heavier loads will receive a higher grade, while lumber that’s weaker or less rigid will receive a lower grade. Boards is a general term that refers to lumber that is cut for decorative use.

In this category, products are classified based on appearance rather than overall strength, with higher grade boards. Probably the most difficult decision to make when building a wood deck is what type of decking to use. All three choices—5/4 x 6-in.
