Wood is an incredible building resource, and the most commonly used one. It is available in abundance and easy to machine. While light, it is also strong and rigid with a favorable strength-to-weight ratio. The most important aspect is that it is a renewable source which is naturally environment friendly compared to other building materials. However, working with wood requires an understanding of its qualities, the constant changes of its properties, exposure to water and possibility of bio-deterioration.
