The Ligna and Interzum trade shows are coordinating marketing activities for their 2013 events. The two fairs are staged in succession so international visitors can attend both events in a single trip. The two shows will provide an overview of materials, design developments and technology for wood processing, woodworking and furniture.
Show organizers Koelnmesse for Interzum and Deutsche Messe AG for Ligna. In 2013, the two shows will switch places on the calendar, with Ligna going first due to the timing of public holidays in Germany. Ligna will be held in Hanover from May 6 to 10, 2013. Interzum will be held in Cologne May 13 to 16, and will feature furniture materials, design and interior finishing. For more information see www.interzum.com and www.ligna.de.

Q: I am in a tropical island and am sending you several
large sized table legs. You will notice that there are some
substantial splits, which seem to, more often and not, be at the
ends. We see these after we unload the furniture from the
container and put it in our warehouse here near the coast.
Sometimes, the splits are delayed until the pieces reach our
sales area. What is going on? Everyone is pointing
Q: We are using southern yellow pine for furniture and
