I. like. Wood. Just putting it out there. Who the hell does not?
Without a doubt wood is the most versatile product on the planet and probably one of the most stunning too. It can be found in numerous different colours, kinds, strengths - and there are many different things you can make and do with timber.
You can pretty much make anything and whatever from a pen, a car, a total home, 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 earlier during my woodworking apprenticeship I was told that if someone had actually invented 'wood' as a material it would be prohibited from sale (absolutely by the EU). That's since wood has many imperfections. Like tough knots impossible to nail into. And it deforms, bows, shakes, divides, diminishes & expands! It might be a headache to deal with if you didn't understand how.
Fortunately most of the above problems can be overcome and prevented if you understand the characteristics and how to work with the lumber at hand. And then, you could develop something incredible.
As a carpenter you ought to never run out work. No expert system, no device could ever replace or reproduce the competent work a carpenter can do.
