Class Code: 2883

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 2883, a “not otherwise classified” classification, is assigned to employers that process rough or surfaced lumber, plywood, or fiberboard into finished products.

This code includes the manufacture of furniture and frame parts that are assembled into chairs, buffets, dining room sets, dressers, chests, beds, tables, couches, china closets, and other furniture. Code 2883 further includes the finishing of such furniture by sanding or buffing, followed by the application of stains, varnish, lacquer, or paint.

Trunk manufacturing operations included in this classification involve the machine cutting of plywood as well as the processing of cloth, imitation leather, and light sheet metal. The plywood and other materials are cut to size, wood frames are assembled, and an interior lining of cloth is secured by nailing or gluing. Sheet metal, used as a protective cover over the plywood, is cut, bent, and riveted. Hinges and locks are riveted or nailed in place. The finished trunks are then painted, lacquered, or varnished. The hardware (hinges and locks) is usually purchased from outside sources, but if made by the employer, that work is subject to a division of payroll.

Analogy Assignments:

The manufacture of wooden lamps, as well as the manufacture of wooden bases for award plaques or trophies, is classified by analogy to Code 2883.

The manufacture of speaker enclosures or boxes, including the assembly of speaker units such as woofers and/or tweeters into the speaker enclosure, is also classified to Code 2883. This operation is considered analogous to phonograph cabinet manufacturing including installation of mechanisms, which is included in Code 2883.

Equipment and Materials:

Machinery used by employers classified under Code 2883 includes, but is not limited to, saws, planers, lathes, jointers, molders, routers, shapers, sanders, and buffers as well as equipment to apply stain, varnish, lacquer, or paint.

Additional Applications and Information:

Code 2883 includes the manufacture and assembly of wood cigar boxes. Box wood lumber, received from outside sources, is cut to width and length, usually with rip and cutoff saws and dressed on jointers. Wood printing presses imprint names on the box parts, which are then assembled using nailing machines. There is a considerable amount of hand finishing work included in this operation such as the hand cutting and pasting of labels and linings in the completed boxes.

The following operations are additionally assigned to Code 2883—Airplane Subassemblies Mfg.—Wood; Cedar Chest Mfg.; and Tank, Seat or Cabinet Mfg.—Toilet—Wood.
