Wood Shavings

 

a general term for the waste materials obtained in working wood by cutting it with woodworking machine tools and for certain semifinished products (singleply veneer, lath, thin paneling), made by the woodworking industry. The different types of wood shavings have special names, for example, waste from saws is called sawdust, from grinders, dust, and from rollers, single-ply veneer. Wood shavings are often used as fuel, and sawdust is used as a raw material in hydrolytic production. Wood shavings from milling machines and planers are sometimes used as a filler for the middle layer of three-ply chip board. The semifinished products are used in the production of plywood (veneer), for packing (excelsior), and for veneering furniture, paneling, and chip boards.
