Types of furniture woods and good/bad points


I tried Googling, but I didn't come up w/ a site that covers all the types of furniture woods and their respective good/bad points (and maybe a pic of what they look like).
Does anybody know of a site(s) like this?
Thanks, Jim

I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for. A basic book on furniture construction may help. Poplar is often used for non visible structural parts because it is cheaper that the fancier woods but still is structurally sound.
Woods that you don't like the looks of would be under the "bad points" category.
That leaves many other good looking woods that are very popular because then have a nice appearance. Most domestic hardwoods have decent workability, but a lot of personal preference comes in here.
