Long finger jointed staves cure and are next sent to a planing station where all four sides are planed smooth.

This is preparation for edge or face gluing to make panels or laminated shapes.

Inspection of the product occurs here as they pass through the station.

The planed and inspected staves now go to the panel layup station for sorting, color matching and inspection.
