Species Index Sources

The three sources referenced in the index correspond with these resources:
World Woods in Color (WWC) - Provides a wealth of information on over 275 wood species with color photos showing the grain in each specie. Also includes detailed information on mechanical and working properties, seasonal durability and uses.
Commercial Foreign Woods (CFW) - This would seem to be a standard reference for those in the commercial side of the wood business, though I couldn't tell you where to find a copy as it seems to be out of print.
Species List (SPEC) - You can find here a list of the scientific names for nearly 1,000 species. All are included in the Species Search.
Wood Search is made possible through the efforts of its author, Dave Bilger of B&B Rare Woods.
