How to “read a tree” with Matt Cremona and April Wilkerson

Many woodworkers actively seek out timber with interesting or decorative grain patterns for their work. For most of us that means a hunt through the slabs already cut in the timber yard to find the perfect piece to work with.  However for Triton Brand Champion, Matt Cremona searching for interesting figure in timber starts by understanding how trees grow and the forces at work to shape their internal structures.  In this film Matt talks to April Wilkerson about the process of reading a tree as it stands to understand the hidden treasures within.
