5.0 out of 5 stars The very best wood guide in publication, 22 Feb. 2007

This review is from: The Real Wood Bible: The Complete Illustrated Guide to Choosing and Using 100 Decorative Woods (Spiral-bound)
A fabulous book. If you are any kind of woodworker or just interested in wood this book is for you. Beautiful colour illustrations with a hardback, quality paper and spiral bound which allows the pages to lie flat. The content is comprehensive with each wood receiving a good degree of information to its usage, how it nails, screws, mills, finishes, shapes, wears etc. There are photos of the end grain of each wood together with flat views showing untreated sanded appearance and another showing how the wood looks when treated with a clear oil. A fantastic reference book but allow time when you dip in to read it - you will not want to put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, only American, 24 Jan. 2009
This review is from: The Real Wood Bible: The Complete Illustrated Guide to Choosing and Using 100 Decorative Woods (Spiral-bound)
I got this book in the hope that it would have pretty much all woods listed. Which it does! Well, it may have all of the woods listed but you might not be able to find some of them because the book has been written by an american, nothing wrong with that, just that they seem to give a lot of species of wood differnt names to what people in the UK would know them as.

But yeah,each species of wood has a couple of pages (in some cases just one), one page for information about the wood and one for a full page picture of the grain of the wood. The info on each wood is quite detailed which is why I think this book is so good, from how easy it is to shape to the sustainability of the wood. Ideal!
