These sticks, called Wood Stock, are like Pantone chips, but for wood. So if you're clueless about wood like me, you'll be able to tell the difference between beech and birch in no time.
As cool as I think it is, I feel like the type of people who need something like this don't work with wood. And the people who do work with wood don't need something like this. In any case, Wood Stock will teach you the uniqueness of cherry, birch, acacia, ash, beech, alder, oak, larch, maple and chestnut wood. [Abitare via NOTCOT via CrunchGear]
