  • Books on Wood Identification

    Every now and then I run into a piece of wood I can't identify or want to know more about before using it. I have been thinking about getting a book on identifying and describing different kinds of wood.

    Does anyone have any recommendations? I would like to see color pictures of the wood and get a description from a woodworker's point of view.

    Thanks,
    Dan

Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

        I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
