The machining of green (wet) wood was studied regarding cutting tool problems. The nonhomogeneous, multicomponent nature of cutting tools and the water and water solubles in the wood result in electrochemical action. Both mechanical and corrosive tool wear mechanisms are active in wood cutting. The relative magnitudes of mechanical and electrochemical effects were determined by analyzing tool life data in terms of simple models of the individual wear mechanisms.
