Recomendation on Grading Lumber
« on: March 14, 2004, 06:58:49 PM »

Looking for a good reference source for grading Cherry lumber that I will be milling soon.  Books, video, something to help determine the dif btween FAS, select, common etc,.

Any assistance is appreciated

check out paragraph 5 rather than 6.  6 is for stress grades. :)

M.C.,  

Check out this link, it has some nice visuals on grading hardwood lumber.
It's a PDF file so you'll need Acrobat reader to down load it.

http://www.ahec.org/hardwoods/grading.html

once there click on the link, "Illustrated Grading guide (644K)"

It will take a few moments to download, but it's well worth the wait.
WMLT40HDG35, Nyle L-150 DH Kiln, now all I need is some logs and someone to do the work :)
