I picked up an incredible book on the subject of wood yesterday. I have only begun to read it; and that will take some time because of it's size; but I already highly recommend it to woodcarvers. So far, I have read on fungi, sharpening, stressed wood, identifying wood, and much more.
I found mine at a used book store for $1.99; I priced it on Amazon and found (1) new copy for sale at $10.93.
Understanding Wood: A Craftsman's Guide to Wood Technology by R. Bruce Hoadley
Re: Great reading
Wayne, I'll be checking into carrying it, depends on the publisher.
The book is very informative, perhaps a touch technical, but written by a wood carver. It includes information I have never seen discussed anywhere before; such as the fluorescent properties of wood. Another section I found interesting was on 'reaction wood'.
It isn't so much a carving book as a wood book; but if you love wood, it's interesting reading.
