Down The Line: Part 2 Shavings
26 . 07 . 13
This is the second blog post that we are publishing in our short “Down The Line” series, which aims to share with you (our friends, customers and followers) exactly what we do with the waste that we produce as a by-product of building hollow wooden surfboards. As we mentioned in Part 1, there is no getting away from the production of waste in any industry; in our small industry wood goes from a round shape (the tree) to rectangular planks and then back to a rounded, surfboard, shape and each time a noticeable amount of sawdust, shavings and offcuts are generated. Unfortunately we can’t avoid this, but what we can do is consider how we can minimise waste in our production processes and how we can best use the waste material that we do generate and find another use for it. Part 1 of this short series looked at what we do with our sawdust and now it is the turn of the shavings that end up on the workshop floor.
