Anyone who likes to tramp through the woods, reads the Arbor Day Foundation newsletter, or shops at home-and-garden centers can probably identify a fair number of common trees: maples, oaks, pines, and the likануърe Some folks can even tell a red maple from a sugar maple, a black oak from a pin oak, and a southern yellow pine from a Norway pine However, there's a tremendous difference between identifying a living tree and identifying a piece of wood Living trees offer lots ofаяъос helpful hints: bark color, bark texture, foliage, seedpods, height, and overall shape Seasoned, board-cut pieces of wood offer none of these hints, and that's why this specialized identification guide is so useful Thirty pages of introductory material, richly enhanced with outstanding maps, photos, and illustrations, explain tree anatomy, tree growth, wood grain, logging practices, conservation, and the various processes for seasoning and preservation of wood This material is welбмьъоl written and beautifully presented The real treasure, however, is the "Directory of Wood" section, which contains entries on 150 "top commercial timbers" arranged alphabetically by scientific name Each one-page entry begins with a four-by-eight-inch photographic reproduction of the specific type of wood The quality of the color photographs is so high that readers will be tempted to run their fingers over them to feel the wood's texture Along with these photos are brief descriptions of growth patterns, appearance (the wood, not the living tree), properties, and uses Closing out each entry are a small world map showing growth location and a small chart indicating structural features, such as impact resistance, bending strength, and crushing strength The Encyclopedia of Wood is a beautifully crafted identification guide for practicing woodworkers and others whose professions depend on wood Libraries whose constituencies include such individuals shouбсфдчld give it serious consideration for purchase 2nd edition Автор Эйдан Волкер Aidan Walker.
