Description

Wood may grow on trees, but it’s still expensive, especially for fine woodworkers in the market for high-quality lumber. Here’s the answer: an expert’s handbook on finding, processing, seasoning, and drying your own wood. Designed with the independent craftsperson in mind, it focuses on working with small loads—an approach neglected in most other books on this subject. There are tips on sources, as well as on how to select and prepare the wood to bring out the most desired grain patterns. A truly unique resource. Alan Holtham is a woodworker and a journalist who writes extensively on this subject for specialist publications including Woodturning magazine, New Woodworking, The Router and Furniture & Cabinetmaking.
