Excerpt from A Study of the Massachusetts Wood-Using Industries The Bureau of the Census, in co-operation with the United States Forest Service, compiles and publishes statistics annually, showing the output of sawmills by States and for the whole country. The cut in Massachusetts in 1908 was 384,526,000 feet B. M., reported by 610 sawmills. This did not include pulpwood, tanbark, tanning extracts, cross-ties, telegraph and telephone poles, or cooperage and veneer stocks. After lumber leaves the sawmill it serves many purposes. Some of it passes through no further process of manufacture, but goes into buildings with only the cutting and fitting which carpenters give it. Another part is further manufactured before it is used. Woodworking machines of many kinds change its form, and it is cut, joined and fitted by skilled labor, becoming, partly or wholly, a finished product, - boxes, frames, doors, sash, vehicles, boats, shuttles, spools, lasts, baskets, musical instruments, furniture, handles, toys, brushes and many more. This study has to do with that part of lumber only which undergoes further process of manufacture after it leaves the sawmill. Heretofore, lumber has not been very carefully followed after it leaves the saw, to ascertain what becomes of it, what is made of it, and into what commodities it enters. In a general way it has been known that some of it is used in its rough form, and some passes through further process of manufacture. The present study of the wood-manufacturing industries of Massachusetts was undertaken to supply information concerning the lumber which is not used in its rough form. The work has been done in co-operation by the United States Forest Service and the State of Massachusetts. Industries which manufacture commodities wholly or partly of wood were asked to furnish data along their special lines, and this report is based on their replies, supplemented by independent investigations throughout the State. Statistics thus collected and published are expected to be useful to both growers and manufacturers of wood.
