Abstract:This article describes a method of sample scaling which has been developed to meet the war necessity of scaling more logs with few scalers. Formulas and tables are presented for determining the size of sample necessary to attain any desired degree of accuracy when the total number of logs to be scaled and the variation of volume in individual logs are taken into consideration.
