A Field Guide to Identifying Woods


This book is the authority on wood identification. Beginning with general information about the featured woods, the book then delves into hundreds of detailed photographs, even at a macroscopic level, depicting the critical characteristics used in identification. Ultimately, each wood is presented in two or more antique or collectible objects to illustrate the traits that confirm the wood's identification.
