How Strong is Lumber? Hydraulic Press Test!



How strong are different sized pieces of lumber? We are going to use our 150 ton Hydraulic Press and 240 ton force sensor / load cell to find out how many tons can your regular 2by4 or 2 x 4 or Two by Four piece of wood can take!

  1. Lots of testing on engineered wood products and other species would be interesting. I'd like to see Bois D'arc or Osage Orange from Texas tested. It is a very hard, dense wood as is Mesquite. After the destruction you could cook with the Mesquite…amazing flavors from that wood.

  2. The first piece was probably weaker because you put it "upside down" in comparison to the one with the knot in it.
    Nice video, I would like to see different types of wood if I may suggest.

  3. Wood is an amazing natural product that out performs other materials in size and weight strength tests. After all the foundation of civilization has come about because of this awesome material.

  4. You have never tested plywood (alternating grain) or LVL (not alternating grain) right? 😀 This might be interesting to see since wood prices have skyrocketed recently.
