    Product Description-Selecting and Drying Wood (New Best of
                        Fine Woodworking)
This book collects the best articles from recent issues of "Fine Woodworking" on the subject of finding and working with wood.
Wood is the one thing that woodworkers have in common and there is endless fascination with the working properties of various
  species, how to select and season wood and how to store it. Wood has a way of behaving as if it's still alive, moving with
   seasonal changes in temperature and humidity. Learning to work with it rather than against wood movement is critical to
  successful woodworking.Table of ContentsSection 1: Buying and HarvestingSection 2: Selecting WoodSection 3: Drying

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful Good book for making lumber, July 8, 2008 By DavidA (GA)
This review is from: Selecting and Drying Wood (New Best of Fine Woodworking) (Paperback) This book is a collection of
articles from Fine Woodworking over the last several years. The number and scope of articles is pretty comprehensive. If you
have all the mags, you can find these articles or just go to this one source and find what you need. It even has articles on
staining/fading of different types of wood/stains and health concerns with certain species of domestic and imported woods--not
things one always considers. Overall, def worth the $12 or so.

(Williamsburg, VA United States)
This review is from: Selecting and Drying Wood (New Best of Fine Woodworking) (Paperback) I've used this book extensively. It
has taught me the basics on drying wet wood for a home/hobby wood worker.

Dry lumber, November 28, 2011 By SHAKUR
This review is from: Selecting and Drying Wood (New Best of Fine Woodworking) (Paperback) This book has helped me a lot. I
live in Colombia, South America and got this book from amazon. It's great how the author explains step by step the way to get
the best out of any lumber. In the conditions we live here in Colombia, from high temperatures to lots of rain, it's very important
for any woodworker to learn how to get dry wood. This is one great way to learn the process properly.
