About this book

This unique encyclopedia brings together a remarkable amount of practical information on the world's most important timbers: from abura to ziricote. Aimed squarely at the individual or small-scale user, whether professional or amateur, it describes the appearance and properties of a huge range of woods used in cabinetmaking, joinery, carpentry, turning or carving.

Colour photographs provide a guide to species identification, and there is reliable data on working properties, seasoning requirements, durability, typical uses, and the health risks which may be associated with certain species. A further 200 species are listed in brief. A comprehensive index enables you to identify any of the listed woods by both common and scientific names, and by local names used in their country of origin. The result is an indispensable guide to one of the world's most valuable natural resources.
