I. like. Wood. Just putting it out there. Who the hell doesn't?
By far wood is the most flexible product in the world and arguably among the most beautiful too. It is available in many various colours, kinds, strengths - and there are so many different things you can make and make with timber.
You can practically make anything and everything from a pen, a car, a total house, a bridge, a PIRATE SHIP - all out of wood! For Christs sake you can even make woodworking tools OUT OF WOOD! For sobbing out loud!
Over 20 years back throughout my carpentry apprenticeship Montclair Decks I was informed that if somebody had created 'wood' as a product it would be prohibited from sale (certainly by the EU). That's due to the fact that wood has numerous flaws. Like tough knots impossible to nail into. And it contorts, bows, shakes, divides, diminishes & expands! It could be a headache to work with if you didn't understand how.
Thankfully the majority of the above problems can be gotten rid of and prevented if you understand the qualities and how to work with the timber at hand. And then, you could develop something fantastic.
As a carpenter you must never ever run out work. No artificial intelligence, no maker might ever replace or duplicate the competent work a carpenter can do.
