"Wood: The Natural Material" is a deep dive into the wood we use in products for construction and design. Through understanding the history and classification of our trees and woody plants, we can better make natural material selections that meet our ever changing needs in the design community. An understanding of common terminology like "hardwoods" vs. "softwoods" as well as what testing is done to wood products (e.g. Janka hardness test) can better help us create and design spaces that are safe, sustainable, and meet the needs of that space.
