'The ideal book for the home woodworker, tradesman, handicraft master, and all those interested in woodwork and the timber trades. It contains a full list of timbers in general use, both hardwoods and softwoods, giving their characteristics, sources, weights, uses, and all other details of use and of interest. In addition are chapters on conversion, measurement, growth and structure, and the various made-up materials such as plywood, laminboard and so on. The practical man will find it of great value in selecting suitable materials for his job, in ordering it, and in identifying timbers generally, whilst to those who are preparing to sit for examinations it will prove an extremely informative and handy text book.'
