The ash and metals content of Acacia mangium Wild was determined following standard procedures of TAPPI T211 om-93 test method and wet ashing procedures with HNO3 and HClO4 solution, respectively. easurements of trace elements were carried out by the use of atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS). Although it was fluctuating, the lowest ash content was found in a 5 years old wood and then tended to increase in older three. In the 3 and 5 years old wood, the ash content decreased from upper end to the lower end of the stems. In the 7 and 9 years old wood, the lowest ash content was in the middle part and it tends to increase to the lower end of the stem. Ash content of sapwood was higher than that of heartwood. The content of Mg decreased with increasing age of wood, and other metals tended to increase with the increase of wood age. Metallic components of acacia wood tended to accumulate more in sapwood compared to these in heartwoods. Vertically, the content of Mg and Cu decreased from upper end to lower end of the stems, and in contrary to these of other metals.

The water soluble extract of samak (Syzygium inophyllum) bark was applied as natural dye for jabon wood (Anthocephalus cadamba). Ten percent of the extract concentration was used for staining of jabon wood by soaking methods for 74 h at room temperature, and for 3 h at 70 oC, respectively. The stained jabon wood performances were evaluated as the color change and stability by hot water leaching test. The stained and leached woods were assessed by determination of color changes using CIELab method and FTIR analysis. Based on the CIELab analysis, the brightness (L* value) of stained jabon wood decreased, and tend to more reddish (a* value increased) and yellowish (b* value slightly increased) compared to these of unstained wood, as the results, the color of jabon wood changed from light grey to reddish orange after staining with samak bark extract. The leaching test of stained wood to hot water changed the color from reddish orange to dull orange. FTIR analysis indicated that part of the extract stained jabon wood was quite stable to hot water treatment.

This research focused on distribution of water borne preservative on woods preserved using full cell and empty cell processes. Retention, penetration, and durability of preserved woods against dry wood termite (Cryptotermes cynochephalus LIGHT) attacked were evaluated. Pine (Pinus merkusii) and sengon (Paraserianthes falcataria) woods were preserved using 5% Wolmanit CB (water soluble preservative) using full cell and empty cell processes. The results indicated that retention of preservative preserved with full cell process was higher than empty cell process. Copper penetration on sengon wood preserved using full cell process was much higher than empty cell process. Distribution of copper and chromium on wood preserved using full cell process evenly distributed through the wood both in pine and sengon woods. They were sharply decreased from outerpart to inner part of wood when preserved using empty cell process. The whole part of pine and sengon woods preserved by either full cell or empty cell processes strongly resistance against dry wood termite attacked. Quantitative analysis of active substance of preservative using atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) could detect the preservative in preserved wood more accurately compared using conventional method (retention and penetration tests).

Machining properties of wood play important roles in wood-working processes and will determine quality of end-wood products. There are several less-used species of wood with superior properties and could be promoted as commercial timber. This research was designed to explore the machining properties of two less-used spesies from West Papua of, watergum (Syzygium sp) and simpur (Dillenia sp). Varibles used to evaluate the machining properties are planning, sanding, boring, mortising, and turning. A modified- ASTM D 1666-64 was used to investigate this experiment. The results indicated that water gum was classified to the first class of machining properties (very good) having free defects of 83.70%, while simpur belongs to the second class (good) with free defects of 72.55%. These wood species are comparable with matoa and could be used as substituent timber. According to their density, these two wood species were suitable for general construction, housing material and furniture products. Both species are highly being recommended for customer preferences instead of the previously favourable timbers.
