PCAARRD IA 2013-5: Seasoning Schedule for Yemane towards a Better Furniture Industry

Yemane (Gmelina arborea), as one of the substitutes for lumber, is a widely-used material in furniture making. However, the drying process of Gmelina is not well developed. This study, thus, assessed the impacts of the project "Establishment of a Seasoning Schedule for Gmelina". Results revealed that the wood processors-cooperators fully adopted the seasoning schedule for Gmelina. As a result, the wood furniture industry experienced numerous positive benefits from drying efficiency, volume of output per dryer, drying time, net revenue, and quality of dried wood.
