Solid wood is one of the materials that have been used for construction works since the pre-historic ages. Though the present day sophisticated tools for cutting, sizing, and refining the wood was not available those days, wood was always used for construction of homes and dwelling places.
Another great use of solid wood has been in the making of furniture. Wood offers the greatest scope and flexibility for creating artistic designs and furniture made of quality wood are not only best looking but also highly durable.
Many architects use solid wood in combination with other materials for construction works. Wood beams are very popular and so are the wooden wall closets and shelf. Until recent past the doors and windows were invariable made with wood though gradually others like engineered, laminated, and fiber materials are taking over.
Style and character that is generated in construction work with the use of solid wood are unparalleled. That is why even today, it is the number one preference of the construction engineers and architects.
