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 :no:, 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/personal/woodpics/indextotal.htm

Here is another. It is more tree related, but thats where lumber comes from :icon_smile:. 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

You just dated yourself AF1 :laughing:. 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. ;)
