If you weren’t able to attend the Live Web Seminar “Know your wood types” presented by my co-host and friend Shannon Rogers there’s still an opportunity to get all the great information everyone else learned that night.
According to the description at the sign-up page:
“This live web seminar is designed to break down the fear and mystery of our favorite medium and teach some basics about how wood moves and why.
By understanding and looking for 4 elements common to every species, you can quickly assess how a certain wood will work and whether or not it will be right for your next project. Many woodworkers are still in the dark about the one material we all use.
This web live seminar will get you working wood – instead of worrying about how it will move and whether it will be strong enough. The system you learn for reading and interpreting wood data sheets will allow you to find a good wood to use anywhere in the world – and encourage you to “branch” out into new species.”
