The book titled ‘Basic Technology of Wood Working’, written and published by Channa Wijesekara, provides desperately needed technical knowhow not only to the carpentry students but also to the experienced veterans in 
the industry. 

The content of the publication provides useful and important information to everyone on wood and usage of wood, which may be valuable in understanding the 
practical application.
Wijesekara is a civil engineering diplomate of the University of Moratuwa possessing fellowship of the Institute of Incorporated Engineers. He has been exposed to the wood industry for over 35 years and can be categorically named as one of the best ‘wood technologists’, if not the best, in Sri Lanka currently. 

He has obtained most of his technical knowledge initially through an educational stint in Germany and later in other countries as well. Wijesekara’s experience and acquaintance to the wood sector as a student, trainee, trainer, educator, curriculum writer, administrator and finally a successful and decorated entrepreneur has made the contents of the book extremely effective and beneficial to the reader.

Wijesekara, at present, holds two nationally important positions as Wood & Wood-Based Industrialists’ Association President and Industry & Commerce Ministry Advisory Council Chairman on Wood Based Industries. In addition, he is founder Managing Director of Leema Creations (Pvt.) Ltd, the reputed and respected entity in the furniture industry with repeated recognition by way of various national awards for excellence by 
many institutions.
