THE WOOD BOOK. Ed. by Francesc Zamora. Loft Publications, Barcelona, 2016. 256 pp. 25 x 22 cm. ISBN 9788499369723 In English.
Publisher's description: This volume presents descriptions of over 100 trees and bushes from all parts of the globe and their utility as a material. We have drawn on many sources in compiling tables of the physical and mechanical properties of the featured woods into a useful reference guide. The unique physical properties of each type of wood determines its suitability for different uses. These properties, including bending strength, density, hardness, stiffness and shrinkage rate must be considered to use wood to its best advantage. For instance, some species are suitable for boat building because they are durable and resistant to decay, while other species are extensively used in building construction because of their structural strengths.
