How to Contribute
Hopefully this will grow into its own section like Reviews but for now Martin has suggested we use blogs.
So, just create a blog about a particular wood and send me a link to your blog so I can add it to this page. See the bloodwood blog above as an example. I think that over time we may come to some standard format but for now just create it as you like.
There are a number of sites with wood photos and properties and you may included that information in your blog but we are most interested in your personal experiences working with the wood. In addition to the individual wood blogs, I think that we will also include some wood properties tables that list hardness, movement, etc for a number of woods in a single blog.
Remember not to violate copyrights when posting information from other sources.
There are currently some issues with searching for these blogs using the search box. We expect to overcome these issues in the future so please add our standard set of tags to each blog you create.
The standard tags are : wood library, wood samples, wood details, wood info, woodinfo, woodlibrary, woodsamples, wooddetails plus the wood name.
Since multiple users cannot share a blog series, Martin has asked that I maintain a master list of all the blogs on this page. When you create a Wood Library blog, send me a PM with the blog link and I will add it to the list on this page.
You can also contribute by adding comments to an existing Wood Library blog. For instance, if you have additional comments or experience with bloodwood please add a comment to my bloodwood blog.
Please comment in this blog your ideas and questions about the LumberJock’s Wood Library
PS. Be sure to tell Allison thanks. It was her idea.
