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 rather than against wood movement is critical to successful woodworking.
