A practical and inspiring A-Z guide to the world's most popular woods.
Wood is a favoured building material because of availability, ease to cut and join, decorative properties, functionality, flexibility, and a favourable strength-to-weight ratio.
The Real Wood Bible is a comprehensive handbook for anyone who works with wood...or is planning to. Woodworkers, crafters, carpenters and interior designers will find extensive information about the woods they regularly use as well as discover some new ones.
Each wood is shown with a colour illustration demonstrating the true look and beauty of the finished and unfinished grain.
A special section on sustainability is also included, with an introduction to key conservation issues.
This is the essential reference for the appreciation of the practical beauty of the world's most popular building material.
