It is important to remember that timber is a natural product and that it will react to changes in climatic conditions during the life of the product. Uneven swelling, raised grain and resin bleed are generally due to varying climatic conditions. It is possible to minimise this however by adhering to the following recommendations.
Health and safety precautions should be adhered to when working with all wood products. Machine tools should be fitted with dust extractors and work areas should be kept clean. If dust levels exceed Work safe New Zealand Standards, the wearing of a dust mask (AS/NZS 1715 & AS/NZS 1716) and protective eyewear (AS/NZS 1336 & AS/NZS 1337) is recommended. Storage and work areas should be adequately ventilated.
