The objectives of this study were to examine the use of some lesser-used wood-based inputs and to determine their selection criteria by furniture and cabinet manufacturers in the Southern United States. In this research we found that no respondents used OSB (oriented strandboard). Respondents in all industry sectors studied said that they planned to increase usage of lumber and plywood. We also found that the main reason respondents are not using OSB, LVL, PSL and LSL is customer objections.
