iPhone Becomes a Wood Encyclopediacomments (0) September 8th, 2009 in blogs
Now woodworkers have a good excuse to bring their iPhones to the shop and lumberyard. There's a new application developed by Double Dog Studios, called I.D. Wood, that turns your phone into a wood guide. With it you can view more than 50 wood samples (raw and finished) and get almost any data you need, including:
- Species and botanical names
- Common names
- Common uses
You also have access to:
- Wood Glossary
- Lumber cutting techniques
- Dimensional lumber conversions
- Thickness measuring screen
- References for pilot hole and nail sizes
For more information or to download, visit the Double Dog website.
