Alan Holtham, HOW TO SEASON AND DRY YOUR OWN WOOD
Ref: 17880


This handbook takes the reader through the process of finding, processing, seasoning and drying their own unique timber and is aimed at independent woodworkers across a whole range of disciplines. To this day, most literature on seasoning and drying timber takes into account that the readers are dealing with timber by the kiln-load, but this title is aimed at one-man-bands, who work with small garden timber and writes in an entertaining and accessible. The book covers: Anatomical structures of wood, identifying timber, sourcing timber, seasoning timber and drying timber.
