Check out the US Forest Service Wood Handbook – it’s a public
book you can download for free and it’s loaded with hard numbers
about wood characteristics. Really cool stuff:

Chapter 5 has great information on bending characteristics.

Hey, in the same website area, but really hard to locate is a surprisingly informative section on fire resistance of different wood species, but each tree is full ecology information. I use these all the time, for curiosity and fact finding. Doesn’t include wood working info, but none the less can give clues to why woods act the way they do while we work them.

Have your say...
