The Real Wood Bible, Book

Tim Posted October 17, 2014
I've been looking for a book like this for quite some time now. I was just about ready to pull the trigger and buy a much Larger Hard Cover Book at the Retail Book Store that sells the Expensive Coffee but I'm Glad I balked one more time because this is just the perfect size (6"X 8"), every bit as Good and doesn't cost $39.99 either. Practically every page is filled with Beautiful Full Color Pictures of all kinds of Wood just like the more expensive Bigger Hard Cover Book.
