This book explains the techniques necessary to simulate many hardwoods and softwoods, and shows how to create fantasy effects. Advice is given on transforming floors, woodwork, walls, furniture, and more. Among the topics covered are basic techniques- specific simulations, including ash, oak, mahogany, maple, rosewood, bamboo, teak and pine- and planning a panelling system.
