  • Wood Handbook

    Here's an interesting handbook published by U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service. More info about wood than I knew existed or care to know about. Some of it's way over my head but it does have some good info. Best of all: it's free and downloadable as PDF.

    Thanks for posting this link, Mike!
    It's nice to know the reason things happen the way they do. Being a science geek, I actually appreciate the charts and graphs!

    For anyone interested, I own and recommend an interesting book that contains much of this information and explains it reasonably well.

    Inside every piece of lumber, there is a pile of sawdust waiting to be uncovered

      That's a good website. I have the Encyclopedia of Wood. No book or website contains all woods, but certainly the more popular ones and then some. Thanx Mike.

        Mike, thanks for sharing. It does have an incredible amount of info, but I think I have all the charts and tables memorized now.
