Yorkshire-based wood scientist and timber technologist Jim Coulson has been acknowledged as the definitive international expert in all things wood for more than 35 years. With a string of impressive credentials and work on diverse consultancy projects from Shakespeare??s Globe Theatre to HMS Warrior, he has now published a bible for the building industry entitled ??Wood in Construction??. Sub-titled ??How to avoid costly mistakes??, the book goes straight to the heart of its readers interest by divulging the innermost secrets of wood and how these impact on its use. Appealing to everyone from giants of the construction industry through master craftsmen to the DIY handyman, ??Wood in Construction?? reveals insights into working with wood from Jim??s lifetime in the industry. It focuses on the basic properties of wood and the appropriate use of timber and wood-based materials, showing in clear, non-technical language, how to avoid making expensive mistakes. Published by international scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly publishers Wiley Blackwell, ??Wood in Construction?? is available on Amazon at £24.99 plus postage and packing.
