Book Description

28 Mar 1997
This, from the identifier series, is a practical pocket guide to over 120 of the world's popular timbers in commercial use. An introductory section explains how important wood is in our lives, and a section on the main forest types includes a special feature on rainforests and their conservation. Finally there is an A-Z directory featuring the most popular wood types. Each entry covers the appearance of the wood, its properties and uses, and is accompanied by a map showing where in the world the wood grows. A summary box provides information on characteristics of each wood, and each wood is illustrated in colour for easy identification. The guide aims to enable the woodworker to make the correct choices to benefit their work and environment.
