All About Buying Wood

Woodcarving Illustrated has developed a handy guide for buying wood, called A Handy Reference and Inside Tips from 30 years of Buying Carved Wood that we wanted to share with you today.

Why? Because “Buying wood—be it pine, basswood, or something exotic like rosewood—can leave you scratching your head wondering about the mathematics and vocabulary. Having a basic knowledge of the terminology used, and methods of wood preparation, will enable you to purchase the stock best suited for your project. Many lumber yards have a price list, which can save you a lot of time otherwise spent looking for a favorite wood that isn’t in stock.

From types of cuts and defects in wood to navigating saw mills, check out this PDF to help you out before you begin your next woodworking project.
