Log to timber calculator Pi1

1. Log to timber cutting patterns.  
2. An increase in of the timber output by 10-15%.
3. Reducing the dependence of sawing quality on the human factor.
4. Calculations can be performed in both the metric and imperial unit systems.
5. The calculation report in Excel allows simple data import into your accounting system.
Solutions are calculated individually for each log.

The calculations are performed in two stages.

Stage 1 Cutting logs to given different thickness boards. Data entry rule: put the board of maximum thickness from the list in the center of a log. Next - put a thinner board to the left of a logging center, next thinner board - to the right of the center and so on. You can place any number of boards of the required thickness. The only limit is log diameter. Recommendation: symmetric planning will be the optimal one.
Stage 2 Getting final timber sizes from that pre calculated in Stage 1.

Waney edge point* is a distance from a log bottom end where the waney edged timber appears due to log taper and goes on towards the log top end.
