Wood processing is an activity to converse trees into products that are useful for daily lives. Main some of the main products from the forest around the world are lumber, oak, walnut, maple, and ash. The main products processed from trees consist of
furniture, constructions, and paper supplies. The materials of these consumer products come from cut down wood trees.
As a result, wood Product producers have to accommodate reforestation to keep the forest green.

Steps In Wood Processing
In processing wood trees, there are steps conducted before they are ready for production. These are big pictures of wood processing after the producers harvest the woods from naturally done trees.
At this stage, logs will be cut down and divided into desirable sizes. This is known as the basics of the woodworking process and the wood result is still rough.
Drying Or Kiln-Dry Process
As wood trees come from living plants, the cut-down woods may have cracks, uneven surfaces, and a high level of water. Finely dried woods will result in perfect products that are strong and stable in shape and construction. Therefore, it is important to keep the water content inside the
wood at 8 to 12%. Inappropriate levels of water will later damage the end products. Also, it will make woods prone to termites and molds. Wood mills conduct this kiln dry in a special room with certain instructions so that the water can naturally come out of the woods.
The construction process includes component shaping, drilling, and attachment of each wood construction. The process can be conducted manually or with machines. It is said that more than 50% of machine work in the construction will make a good quality product.
Assembly is important to determine the quality of the end product. This should be done carefully to assure that every detail of the component is connected properly. A proper connection will make a high-quality product.
The last step is finishing the process so that the wood product looks aesthetically pleasing. This process will change the previous appearance, the resulting color and texture will look different.
Wood products may need finishing processes more than once or until they truly meet customer requirements.
Those were general descriptions in processing woods. To create good quality products, fine raw materials, as well as proper processing phases, all these phases must be carried out by skillful people.
