Part 3 describes different styles, stains, and finishes of wood, along with how-to instructions for creating your own specialized effects.

    Inspirational and informative

    I have done alot of research because I am renovationg my home. This was the most informative book on wood I found. Not only is it photographed beautifully but it is also comprehensive and inspirational. The authors put their heart and soul into it. I highly recommend it even if you are just thinking about putting a little wood in your home. (maybe even if you aren't thinking about it, you will after you see this book)
