RE: waterborne woodfinishing experts

I would not rule out UV curable coatings for wood (quickly rising market in
USA and already firmly established in Europe) and low temperature powder
coatings are being developed.

Wood waste can be source reduced with old technology such as finger jointing
and slat gluing (anything bigger than 1/4"x1/2"x6" has been reused
successfully by gluing together) to hydraulic splitters (to replace sawing -
leaves no sawdust or chips).

Visit our web site's publication page (site URL below my signature) for
manuals on Wood Furniture (a little outdated) and UV Applied Technology.
