Thanks everyone for all the links & leads!
Kerry, I'm just getting into some more serious woodworking, at the moment I'm building some solid freestanding Bookcases. My quest for a nice hardwood for the edge trimming on the case lead to this question!
A lot of my plans come from my Dad's Woodsmith Collection, from when we lived in the Sates, and most of the resources online are from the U.S. Basically, I wanted to start mapping some of the more common U.S. woods to some Aussie ones so that in the future I can plan easily with a suitable Aussie wood, as locally produced is always a plus!
Good to see some people in Melbourne that could help out, I'll check out these suppliers. I live just down the road from Mitchells (which is great for my construction timbre needs) but it'd be nice to find some better supplies for a few keepsake pieces I have planned. So thanks to you guys for those links!!!
Thanks again gang, I'll have a good look through those links, and see if I can track down any copies of the old texts.
