Wood links (want's in your book marks)

Do you have reference sites favorited for wood ID ? I do. I will add a couple here, feel free to post your own links. I am not interested in retail sites , just reference/education.

Here is a great one (I think I have linked it before) this guy has went to major effort to compile 1000's of pictures of wood species. http://www.hobbithouseinc.com/person...indextotal.htm

Here is another. It is more tree related, but thats where lumber comes from . For you woodworkers that may want to have your own lumber milled, this is a tree id link. You never know, the neighbor may be cutting down a tree that would make some great projects. I used this alot getting started milling, until I could id stuff from memory.http://www.cnr.vt.edu/dendro/dendrology/map/zonemap.cfm

Anyone else have any ? Not just wood id, but maybe wood properties/uses. This one has been linked here before (where I found it ) but we might as well put all the links in one place as a go to thread for research. A toxic wood list. http://www.mimf.com/archives/toxic.htm

Here is another. Kinda text heavy, but there are some pictures (you have to click the links to see the images). Interesting read if you want to know more about figure in wood (curly, burls...), like possible causes and what to look for. http://www.ag.auburn.edu/aaes/commun...dex.html#intro

Thanks for the links Daren. Those are excellent. I didn't know that British Columbia had 138 species of trees.

You just dated yourself AF1 . I get the picture though, I am an old movie fan. Now if you would have said Audry Hepburn, I would have requested picture be posted immediately.

Glad you added the well almost there Joe. Betty's were truly defining.

Don't force it. Use a bigger hammer.
