He furniture maker As important as what is in its pages is what is not It’s not a detailed analysis of cell growth It is not a heap of tables and euations for figuring truss loads in residential construction It is decidedly not a scientist’s approach to the materialInstead “With the Grain” contains the facts you need to know at the lumberyard in the woodlot and in the shop It gives you enough science so you understand how trees grow It explains the handful of formulas you have to know as a furniture maker And it gives you a hearty dose of specific information about North American species that will inspire you Becksvoort encourages you to use the trees in your neighborhood and makes the case that just because you cannot find catalpa at the lumberyard doesn’t mean it’s not a good furniture woodY. Great resource for woodworking especially as a general wood guide Identification uses wood notes It took me a long time to finish it because I wasn't interested in the cabinetry section at the end But everything else was just super compelling and useful and interesting Including a nice section on steam bending And woodlot management
