    Although most foresters are familiar with the use of aerial photo volume tables, little has been written on how to make them. Certain pitfalls in the construction process have either been ignored or only casually mentioned in the existing literature. The forester tackling his first photo volume table is likely to bypass some of the important considerations without being aware of their existence. This does not prevent the tables from being useful, but it is our belief that better tables will result if the major issues are brought out into the open where they can be faced squarely.
