Written for woodworkers by a scientist with a love of woodworking, it covers the nature of wood and its properties, the basics of wood technology, and the woodworker's raw materials.
Identifying Wood. Bruce Hoadley, a professor of wood science and technology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, shows woodworkers how, with just the naked eye and a hand lens or elementary microscopy, you can identify over 180 domestic and tropical hardwoods and softwoods by following a few simple steps. His popular guide includes an overview of the wood identification process, a look at the basic anatomy of wood plants, hundreds of easy-to use charts and detail photograph and microphotographs plus a glossary of all technical terms in the book.
Wood Identification and Use. More than 200 timber species are described in detail in this lavishly illustrated, compact edition of Terry Porter's best-selling book. This indispensable guide features handsome color photographs of each species, reliable data on working properties, seasoning requirements, typical uses and safety considerations plus examples of finished work.
