OK 11 Dec. 2002
By P. van Rijckevorsel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a nicely printed book with attractive sturdy laminated boards. The contents appear serviceable but not outstanding. As apparently inevitable in book of this kind the chapter on "structure of wood" has many small (sometimes not so small) inaccuracies, but these refrain from overwhelming the usability of the chapter. The Gallery of Popular Wood also seems serviceableful, but also has its share of errors (especially the 'lacewood' item was pretty terrible, reflecting the confusion of the US woodworker in this respect).
For my money the 'Good_Wood_Handbook' by Jackson & Day is the better choice for somebody wanting an allround introductory book on wood, mainly because it has more and better color pictures. However I can see how the indivual woodworker might prefer this because of the friendly style of writing. Maybe it boils down to this: the text-oriented reader should consider this book, while the more visually oriented reader can go straight for the 'Good_Wood_Handbook'.
