Woodwork is the art or skill of creating things out of wood, which includes cabinet making, chair making, carpentry, joinery, and wood turning. Woodwork is a collective term for all different kinds of techniques used to turn wooden material into useful objects. The term is also used for the process of collecting, processing, sorting and recycling raw materials into something useful. These activities take place in homes, offices, and workshops across the world on an everyday basis.
Woodwork terminology refers to the skills required to create something out of wood by any method. The term can be used as a verb, meaning ‘to make something out of wood’, or it can be used as a noun, meaning ‘woodwork.’ Woodwork terminology can also refer to a type of trade that involves the creation and sale of wood products, such as furniture. Woodworking became a profitable trade, with people from all backgrounds able to participate in it.
Woodwork is not restricted to just cabinets and tables. Many people are surprised to learn that they can also be a talented artist and create beautiful pieces of woodcraft. In fact, many people who play with wood turn their hobby into a business and run it from home.

Computer aided woodworking can produce some amazing designs, and many people with artistic ability can take advantage of this medium to express their creativity.
There are several types of architectural woodwork. The most common type of architectural woodwork produced from wood is office chair moulding. Office chair moulding is a process where chair frames, back rests, arm rests, and feet rests are created from thin wood boards. This is often done to make chairs look more stylish and sophisticated than they would normally look. Office chair moulding is often used in the public area such as waiting rooms and reception areas as well as the office itself.
Woodworking is also done on hardwoods, such as maple or oak. Hardwood hand tools are necessary for hardwood flooring and other woodwork. One of the best ways to tell if the wood is of high quality is to feel it. Some hardwoods will be denser and hold a greater grain than others, while other hardwoods will have a less densely packed grain and will be less expensive.
The quality of softwoods will depend on the hardness of the wood and on the natural characteristics of the wood. Softwoods are much cheaper than hardwoods. Some of the softwoods that are commonly used for home furniture are; pine, cedar, rosewood, bamboo, walnut, elm, azalea, cherry blossom, juniper, black cherry, pear, plum and quince. Most tropical hardwoods can be found in Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, USA, Canada, Indonesia, South Africa, India and some parts of Western Europe.

There are many styles of woodworking such as American, Victorian, Oriental, Foursquare and Antique. Today more people are using woodworking tools and woodcarving is a popular hobby. Woodwork has been around since ancient times, so it makes sense that it would be around long after most other types of carvings have been forgotten.
