This book is aimed at 'furniture' woods, which makes it of limited use to woodturners for example. Common woods such as Yew and Holly are not represented.

The wood samples themselves are veneer strips, making it impossible to see the end grain, which is of primary importance in timber identification.
The descriptions of the woodgrains etc. are of some use, although illustrative colour plates would have been far more valuable.

On the other hand, you get what you pay for and the samples alone are worth the money. If you are interested only in identifying furniture, this book would probably suit you fine.

At last managed to get a copy of this excellent book which I constantly used in school This book an excellent manual of wood identification has a supurb 40 ACTUAL WOOD SPECIMENS to make it easy to identify types of wood much easier than photographic plates.
