Nick reveals the secret of how wood works explaining the differences between hardwoods and softwoods, plainsawn and quartersawn, straight-grained and figured. He also covers other woodworking materials – veneers, laminates, plywood, and composite sheet materials. There are even instructions for milling and drying you own lumber. Five projects plans show how to use wood grain and figure to your best advantage: Keeping Chest, Herringbone Cutting Board, Grandmother Clock, Mission Bookcase, and a Round Tavern Table.. 128 pages, over 200 illustrations and photos in PDF format.
