Understanding Wood - Woodworking
by R. Bruce Hoadley

Wood moves. Despite this universal condition, instructions on how to deal with wood movement are rare. This information is essential to any woodworker who hopes to achieve lasting good results.

As a wood technologist and skilled craftsman, Hoadley applies his scientific knowledge to the level of a small-scale shop in a detailed and comprehensive way. He describes the makeup of wood and how this differs from one kind to another. He talks about moisture content, how and why it fluctuates, what effects the fluctuations have, and how to compensate for this movement when you build. He also explains the properties and characteristics of wood and what things are important to the woodworker, then tells how to machine, join and finish it to make the most of its strength and quality.

Hardcover, 8-1/2" x 11", 288 pages. Revised edition, 2000.
