Lumber is the single biggest expense in any woodworking project, and top quality stock is increasingly hard to find. These articles by contributors to Fine Woodworking offer expert advice on selecting stock, matching grain, and working a wide variety of species. Of special value are the articles on alternative sources of lumber, and how to dry wood by using a kiln of your own making or air drying.

What's inside:
  • Storing lumber
  • Finding matching boards
  • Using figured woods
  • Choosing a moisture meter
  • Using a grain in design
  • Building a solar kiln
  • Harvesting your own lumber
The New Best of Fine Woodworking series collects the best articles from recent issues of Fine Woodworking magazine. Organized by topic and fully indexed, these books make it easy to access the best woodworking ideas and information straight from the experts.
