Just when you think that you’ve seen it all, something like this comes along. The Wood Database was designed by Eric Meier, whose initial RTF document in 2007 has turned into this very useful tool.
By looking and learning about different woods, any woodworker or crafts-person can quickly and easily ascertain which woods to use for which projects — whether your selection criteria is based on color, grain pattern, strength, dimensional stability, durability, etc.

Sometimes one word can really trip you up. Intranet page 451 used to be called Reference Loans to Other Sno-Isle Libraries. But even the word “loan” wasn’t specific enough and sadly, some reference items have been checked out to customers. So the Reference Services Committee has decided to rename this page to Sharing Reference Materials with Other Sno-Isle Libraries in hopes that everyone understands that reference items don’t get checked out to customers.
