BELLEVILLE, Benoit; ASHLEY, Philip  y  OZARSKA, Barbara. Wood machining properties of Australian plantation-grown Eucalypts. Maderas, Cienc. tecnol. [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.4, pp.677-688. ISSN 0718-221X.

This study assessed the moulding, drilling, turning, sanding, and routing properties of seven plantation-grown hardwood species from southeast Australia to evaluate their potential as a resource for the manufacture of high quality furniture and furnishings. Eucalyptus grandis, Eucalyptus saligna, Corymbia maculata, Eucalyptus camaldulensis, Eucalyptus sideroxylon, Eucalyptus cladocalyx, and Eucalyptus globulus were machined using different tools, and the surface quality obtained was visually graded. A sanding sequence of 100-150 grit produced satisfactory surfaces for furniture manufacturing for most studied species. Usually, a feeding direction against the rotational direction of the tool showed best results and reduced incidence of corner breakout when routing. Overall, high-density plantation-grown Australian hardwood species performed well during machining trials with the use of appropriate parameters and cutting tools allowing overcoming some typical processing difficulties for some species. The data obtained within this study will allow optimising the machining process of plantation-grown wood in Australia and increase value from the current plantation resource.
