Review

The Conversion and Seasoning of Wood covers the many aspects of timber conversion, detailing the most advantageous methods of cutting to produce the best yield and to preserve the best features of the wood. A full account of the methods of drying timber follows and includes both air and kiln drying, as well as dehumidification, drying defects, and the stabilization of wood. Because of the possibility of a large amount of waste the conversion of timber is a very important subject for the craftsman supplying his own wood. William Brown treats this area very carefully and offers remedies of the many pitfalls encountered in the economic conversion of wood. Subjects covered include the best methods of converting and getting the most from your log; using a chainsaw set-up to convert logs and small trees directly for the user; and how to season your wood and protect it and properly store it. The Conversion and Seasoning of Wood is an excellent book for the farmer, woodworker, or any craftsman involved in the conversion or seasoning of wood. -- Midwest Book Review
