Learn to identify woods, whether you have a board, a log, or a splinter. We focus on common hardwoods of southern Michigan and North America, as well as soft woods and non-natives. Students learn to identify woods by studying the growth rings and structure of the wood viewed on the end grain with a hand lens. Use of reference books, samples, and the microscope for wood identification will be presented.
