How Lumber Is Made

Lumber is a general term that applies to lengths of wood used as materials for a variety of construction projects such as decks, cabinetry, interior and exterior doors, and more. But while the use of wood as a construction material predates written history, the tools and techniques used to make lumber have become increasingly modernized over the past century. To see how a piece of lumber is made today, take a look at this video.

In this video clip, you’ll follow a piece of wood as it is transformed into construction-grade lumber after travelling through a series of mechanized machines.
