Wood Identification & Use (Compact Edition) by Terry Porter

More than 200 timber species from around the world are described in detail in this lavishly illustrated, compact edition of Terry Porter’s best-selling book. In this indispensable guide to one of the world’s most valuable natural resources there are handsome color photographs of each species, and reliable data on working properties, seasoning requirements, typical uses and safety considerations. Inspirational examples of finished work are also shown. A further 200 species are listed in brief, and there is a comprehensive index. Aimed squarely at the individual or small-scale user, whether professional or amateur, the book includes woods used in cabinetmaking, joinery, carpentry, turning, carving and a host of more specialist applications. It covers most species in widespread use, and many less familiar ones which deserve to be better known. This new compact edition of a best-selling reference work, includes the 20 important species added to the revised and expanded edition and a section illustrating the variety of decorative figuring which can be found in many species. There is also valuable information on wood defects and potential health hazards. Specially commissioned drawings of living trees, including details of their leaves, fruit and flowers, add a new dimension to the book and serve to enhance our appreciation of the raw material of woodwork.
