VALDES REINOSO, Reinaldo Hanoi; FERNANDEZ CONCEPCION, Raúl Ricardo; PUPO, Ivania  and  ALVAREZ LAZO, Daniel Alberto. Analysis of planning wood quality of different species in Pinar del Río and Artemisa, Cuba. Rev cubana ciencias forestales [online]. 2018, vol.6, n.3, pp.272-283. ISSN 2310-3469.

The research was developed with the objective of determining the applicability in the furniture industry from the wood planning characteristics of Pinus caribaea species Morelet var Caribaea Barrett and Golfari, Acacia mangium Willd., Gmelina arborea Roxb., Samanea saman (Jacq.) Merril and Eucalyptus saligna in the Agro Forest Enterprise Macurije, Pinar del Rio and Artemisa. The machining tests, the evaluation of defects and classification were performed according to ASTM-D 1666-87. The results obtained show that the species studied have potential to be used in the furniture industry. Among the combinations used, the most adequate resulted for Pinus caribaea, Gmelina arborea and Acacia Mangium, the combination number 2 (speed rate 7,32 m*min-1, number of knife 3, cutting angle 300 and cutter-head speed 6200 rpm). On the other hand, for the Eucalyptus saligna and Samanea saman the most adequate resulted the combination 1 (speed rate 7,32 m*min-1, number of knife 3, cutting angle 200 and cutter-head speed 6200 rpm).
