You can practically make anything and everything from a pen, a car, a complete house, a bridge, a PIRATE SHIP - all out of wood! For Christs sake you can even make woodworking tools OUT OF WOOD! For weeping out loud!
Over 20 years earlier during my woodworking apprenticeship I was informed that if somebody had actually developed 'wood' as a product it would be prohibited from sale (absolutely by the EU). That's because wood has many imperfections. Like hard knots difficult to nail into. And it deforms, bows, shakes, divides, diminishes & broadens! It could be a headache to work with if you didn't know how.
Fortunately most of the above problems can be conquered and prevented if you understand the attributes and how to deal with the lumber at hand. And then, you could construct something amazing.
