What is the Wood Species Guide?

Created primarily for professionals who use wood in architecture and construction, or for furniture, the species guide enables you to:
• choose the most suitable wood species for your project
• identify physical properties and illustrations for 40 commercial species (FREE)
• upgrade to access 100 additional wood species for just £4.99

For ipad, iphone, ipod touch and ipad devices.

Using the search facility and a selection of filters you can find a particular wood by:

  • The name(s) of the species
  • Appropriate uses
  • Durability
  • Colour
  • Movement characteristics
  • Or a combination of these factors. The names of timbers matching your search will be listed alphabetically. Photographs of wood samples will also help you check whether the colour and pattern is likely to be suitable for your requirements.
