Field Guide to Identifying Woods in American Antiques and Collectibles - Woodworking
by R. Bruce Hoadley

This reference guide helps you identify aged wood as you might find in antiques at a garage sale or a dealer's shop.

To guide you through the process of identifying wood using just a hand lens, light and a cutting tool, it gives detailed information on the most common North American and exotic species, examining traits such as color, growth rings, pore features, ripple marks, hardness and density.

Much of the book is devoted to Hoadley's fascinating case studies of rare wooden objects and detailed analyses of 37 varieties of wood commonly found in antiques, decorative pieces and everyday items.

Softcover, 7" x 9-1/2", 245 pages, 2016.
