At last, a guide to wood created specifically for turners--one that will help them understand the raw material they work with and achieve their artistic vision. With beautiful close-up color photos that showcase every grain and figure, it describes in detail 50 of the important woods from around the world, from American Black Walnut to Macassar Ebony, along with sound practical information on their physical characteristics, working qualities, and availability. In addition, a further 100 woods--also illustrated for identification--receive briefer consideration. Attractive examples of finished work provide extra inspiration, and there's valuable advice on buying and seasoning lumber, and a handy guide to wood terminology.
