I. like. Wood. Simply putting it out there. Who the hell does not?
By far wood is the most flexible product on the planet and perhaps among the most gorgeous too. It can be found in a lot of various colours, forms, strengths - and there are so many various things you can make and make with wood.
You can practically make anything and whatever from a pen, a cars and truck, 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 ago throughout my woodworking apprenticeship I was told that if somebody had actually invented 'wood' as a product it would be banned from sale (definitely by the EU). That's since wood has so many imperfections. Like tough knots impossible to nail into. And it warps, bows, shakes, divides, diminishes & broadens! It might be a headache to deal with if you didn't understand how.
Luckily the majority of the above problems can be gotten rid of and prevented if you know the qualities and how to deal with the wood at hand. And then, you could develop something incredible.
As a carpenter you ought to never be out of work. No expert system, no device might ever replace or reproduce the skilled work a carpenter can do.
