With less than six months to go, furniture and cabinetmakers are preparing to be compliant with the California Air Resources Board's (CARB) comprehensive restrictions on formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products. While companies are focusing on how to manufacture CARB-compliant products correctly, Scott McConnell, president of McConnell Cabinets, also is preparing for a paperwork deluge. Shops will have to document all incoming material piece by piece and show that all material used was CARB certified. Randy Landis, owner of R Landis Interiors, has found that half of his customers ask for green products. Clyde Turner, owner CTT Furniture, also has customers who request green materials. To stay ahead of the trend, he uses CARB-compliant materials and water-based finishes. Weber Plywood & Lumber Co is getting the word out via different mediums. While CARB only pertains to California, many in the industry believe it could become a federal rule. What's good for California is good for the nation.
