Wood Identification & Use by Terry Porter

More than 200 timber species are described in this lavishly illustrated, compact edition of U.K. author Terry Porter's best-selling book. There are handsome colour photographs of each species, and reliable data on working properties, seasoning requirements and typical uses. A further 200 species are listed in brief, and there is a comprehensive index. Aimed squarely at the individual or small-scale user, whether professional or amateur, the book includes woods used in cabinetmaking, joinery, carpentry, turning and carving.
