Sometimes with all of the empirical data and objective characteristics given, it becomes easy to overlook the primary purpose of the data: to evaluate the suitability of a wood species for a given task. Sometimes it seems as though a particular wood species was made for a certain purpose. Knowing the common uses for a wood species can help take the guesswork out of interpreting the data, and help to avoid pitfalls.
