with over 400 photos and 200 drawings, each species gets full attention
with its own photo, plus in-depth information on the woods 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.
