From carpenters to artisans, the choices are plentiful when it comes to working with wood. How to decide? Pick up this comprehensive, portable reference including details on selecting and using more than 200 species of wood from around the world. Richly illustrated with over 400 photos and 200 drawings, each species gets full attention with its own photo, plus in-depth information on the wood’s working properties, seasoning requirements, typical uses, and safety considerations. Special emphasis is given to wood figure and defects, as well as health hazards of working with certain woods. Drawings of the tree, leaf, flower, and fruit of most of the species are also included. Along with 200 full descriptions, another 200 species are handily listed in brief. Concise and informative, this is a great go-to (and “take it with you”) resource for anyone working with wood at home or out in the field.
