Item Description...
At last, a guide to wood created specifically for turners--one that will help them understand the raw material they work with and achieve their artistic vision. With beautiful close-up color photos that showcase every grain and figure, it describes in detail 50 of the important woods from around the world, from American Black Walnut to Macassar Ebony, along with sound practical information on their physical characteristics, working qualities, and availability. In addition, a further 100 woods--also illustrated for identification--receive briefer consideration. Attractive examples of finished work provide extra inspiration, and there's valuable advice on buying and seasoning lumber, and a handy guide to wood terminology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A real asset for most turners  Nov 21, 2007
This book, like so many publications by GMC Publications, is an excellent resource in many ways. I will not pick the nit's already posted, but have a few reflections of my own.
I really liked the inclusion of "Possible Health Risks" for each wood (even if the data might be a little dated)
I was disappointed that several standard American turning woods, like Big Leaf Maple, were not included.
I was also disappointed in the inclusion of woods many (including myself) consider unsuitable for turning, like Douglas Fir and Western Hemlock, but since this is a UK publication maybe they consider them "exotic".

Certainly a book that might be included in any Club library (and where mine might end up)
Likable  Sep 11, 2005
This seem a very nice book, attractively printed. It is targeted at woodturners and appears to achieve this, unpretentiously. It is obvious to compare this with the recent book by Terry Porter and in this case a very close comparison is possible indeed as in many cases it uses the exact same photographs (same publisher, same photographer). Occasionally this is quite amusing as where one and the same "platter in ripple maple" turned by Mark Baker is depicted as European maple in Porter's book but as rock maple in this book. This book is much brighter in all aspects of printing (same publishing staff, different font, different printer) but most notable in the pictures of the wood samples, which look more realistic here.
Still, this is short of an ideal book. Preparation and selection of wood surfaces is occasionally well short of what it might be. A number of popular errors (the misidentification of Brazilian tulipwood, the description of masur birch, etc) is perpetuated here. The pictures of the "100 woods in brief" are reduced in scale and not as good as those of the "50 woods in detail". All in all, quite a likable book, that will look good in any wood library.
