A must for every serious woodworker
No more searching the internet to identify imported woods. This the best single Reference Book on the market. Much more than identifying a wood but gives all the characteristics of the wood.

Is this hard cover/spiral bound or paperback?
PhilG on Sep 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine is the 2012 edition. 'Paper back' with stiff glossy covers. 6"x8." Excellent reference. I can also recommend "World Woods in Color" by William Lincoln. Hardbound, 1986, 6 3/4"x10," 320p. Out of print I think but easy to find online (AbeBooks, Alibris, etc.)
