I. like. Wood. Simply putting it out there. Who the hell does not?
Without a doubt wood is the most flexible material on earth and perhaps one of the most lovely too. It is available in many various colours, types, strengths - and there are many various things you can make and finish with timber.
You can pretty much make anything and everything from a pen, a vehicle, 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 twenty years ago during my carpentry apprenticeship I was told that if somebody had invented 'wood' as a material it would be banned from sale (absolutely by the EU). That's because wood has many imperfections. Like hard knots difficult to nail into. And it warps, bows, shakes, splits, shrinks & expands! It could be a problem to deal with if you didn't understand how.
Thankfully the majority of the above problems can be overcome and prevented if you know the attributes and how to deal with the lumber at hand. And then, you might construct something fantastic.
As a carpenter you ought to never ever run out work. No expert system, no device could ever change or reproduce the competent work a carpenter can do.
