The aim of the presented study is to determine the relationship between mechanical parameters of selected wood species (Carya sp., Fagus sylvatica L., Acer platanoides L., Fraxinus excelsior L., Ulmus minor Mill.) used for the production of hand tools and drumsticks and the grain deviation angle from the rectilinear pattern. Modulus of rupture (MOR), modulus of elasticity (MOE), elastic strain and work to maximum load (WML) in the three-point bending test were determined. The results obtained show that the values of all the mechanical parameters measured for hickory wood are higher than those obtained for domestic species. As the grain deviation angle from parallelism increases, the mechanical properties of all analyzed wood species decrease. The greatest influence of grain deviation angle on mechanical parameters was recorded for the work to maximum load values. View Full-Text
