Re: [MedievalSawdust] Wood Identification
- There's also this nifty book called "The Wood Book"... cleaver title, eh? Its a reprint of "The American Woods (1888-1913, 1928) By Romeyn Bech Hough. Published by Taschen. It contains hundreds of woods... and high quality images of the Transverse, Radial and Tangential sections...Then there's the 'Center for Wood Anatomy Research'... nope... I ain't kiddin'. http://www2.fpl.fs.fed.us/ See... a federal web site... part of the USDA.. errr... Forest Service. Not long on pictures but lots of good wood information and worth a visit... It does have a fairly LONG dissertation on HOW to identify wood though...Chas.
