An image forming specific texture can be distinguished manually through the eye. However, sometimes it is difficult to do if the texture owned quite similar. Wood is a natural material that forms a unique texture. Experts can distinguish the quality of wood based texture observed in certain parts of the wood. In this study, it has been extracted texture features of the wood image that can be used to identify the characteristics of wood digitally by computer. Feature extraction carried out using Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrices (GLCM) built on an image from several edge detection methods applied to wood image. Edge detection methods used include Roberts, Sobel, Prewitt, Canny and Laplacian of Gaussian. The image of wood taken in LE2i laboratory, Universite de Bourgogne from the wood sample in France that grouped by their quality by experts and divided into four types of quality. Obtained a statistic that illustrates the distribution of texture features values of each wood type which compared according to the edge operator that is used and selection of specified GLCM parameters.
