History tells us that the first civilization that uses woods as its raw materials were the Egyptians. Egyptian furniture such as tables, chairs, beds or chest and even the inner part of coffin were made of wood.
The Chinese were also another ancient civilization that uses wood in making various items such as flower pots, altar, tables, chairs and cabinets among other things.
What Is Wood Working?
Woodworking is the art or process of making and creating useful objects made of wood with the use of wood working tools such as axes, adzes, bow drills, chisels and pull saws.
Historically speaking, woodworkers have relied on the available type of woods native to their area or region. But with the aid of modern means of transportation and international trade and commerce more exotic and unique variety of woods becomes available to the wood worker.
There are three basic types or kinds of woods where wood craftsmen could work upon: hardwood, softwood and plywood and or Medium-density firewood or MDF.
Hardwood and softwood are derived from trees. While on the other hand, plywood or MDF are industrially produced materials. Traditionally tables and chairs are made from hardwood, whereas, cabinet or other fixtures are usually made from plywood and other industrially made products.
With the coming of the Industrial Revolution and the various invention and modification of so many devices it makes working and life easier. The net result is that such innovation affects all crafts such as woodworking and wood working tools.
