Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is available free online in PDF format from the Forest Products Laboratory (a division of the USDA). I decided to buy the paper copy because the price was fairly low, and I thought it would cost me about that much to print out all the chapters. Unfortunately, the technical production quality of this edition is VERY bad (small, murky print & illustrations). To make matters worse THIS IS NOT THE MOST RECENT EDITION. The online version has been updated to include newer research reflected in current building codes.
This handbook is a classic, don't get me wrong. It should be part of any wood designer's library. It gathers together lots of basic technical information on things like creep and shrinkage that's very hard to find anywhere else. But do yourself a favor - skip this edition!

One of the best kept secrets in wood working literature, the 2002 edition brings together more useful info than in many other similar reference books. I recommend this book to the wood fabricator and to the designer.

Great reference book for any serious woodworker. Can't beat the price. Had an earlier version of this book as a college textbook for wood as an engineering material.
