As a sustainable and organic material, wood plays an essential role in numerous industries, particularly in construction and furniture (Izdinsky et al., 2021). However, due to high-volume demand for this renewable raw material, lack in wood supply is set to become a critical issue in the future (Fiorelli et al., 2019). Therefore, oil palm wood (OPW) extracted from felled oil palm stems is an ideal substitution for the depleting timber resource and could potentially alleviate deforestation. Oil palm trunks and fronds, for example, have been used for particleboard production (Sulaiman et al., 2018).
