By far wood is the most versatile product on earth and perhaps among the most stunning too. It can be found in many different colours, forms, strengths - and there are so many various things you can make and do with timber.
You can practically make anything and everything from a pen, an automobile, 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 weeping out loud!
Over 20 years earlier during my carpentry apprenticeship I was told that if somebody had created 'wood' as a product it would be prohibited from sale (absolutely by the EU). That's since wood has a lot of imperfections. Like hard knots difficult to nail into. And it contorts, bows, shakes, splits, diminishes & broadens! It might be a headache to deal with if you didn't know how.
Fortunately the majority of the above problems can be gotten rid of and avoided if you understand the qualities and how to work with the timber at hand. And then, you might develop something amazing.
As a carpenter you need to never ever run out work. No artificial intelligence, no machine might ever replace or replicate the proficient work a carpenter can do.
